# 44 - The Colour Purple Welcome back to the 'Fantasy Stampers Challenge'.

Here I go again . Trying to enter a new challenge so I hope I can do it because my favorite color is purple . So purple it is . I've used a favorite stamp by clarity , clarity stencil and the words by Unity .

Fun with my first set of Lavinia stamps and the Brayer

Yesterday and today I've had great fun with my new stamps and fairly good time for the first time with the Brayer and Lavinia . I love these stamps , I'm beginning to discover my imagination of course with the help of beautiful,inspiration out there in stampland on the stamping journey . 
     This card is not traditional,for a sympathy card but off the tradition road and there isn't much to be said except sorry ,thinking of you and praying . That's the inside . Think butterflies also say a lot . 


Going to try another one sooooon . Love to all .

CAS challenge at the happy little stampers

Well  I'm  continuing on my journey and what could be better than a ride in a hot air balloon . 
Created this for my grandsons 9 th birthday and also thought it might qualify for a new challenge for me at happy little stampers .
The challenge is to use masking and I masked the oval and clouds and the balloon . 
My Matthew loves orange so I used plenty of it also . 
Fun on the journey    . Love jan
