OSAAT Challenge # 229 Anything Goes .... With Purple

Good afternoon dear friends and fellow crafters.   Oh boy, I'm getting a bit tired of being cold all the time but it is winter after all and there is still time for worse weather.  Let's hope not though.  Anyway, I hope you are all okay and keeping warm.  Good excuse to keep crafting.

Today it is time for the  OSAAT challenge Anything Goes .... With Purple.  I love purple so it wasn't a hardship for me.  My image is Window Shopping by Stitchy Stamps which you can find at our sponsor Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet

My Project



Recipe
X Cut - Gift Bag die
Spellbinders - Labels 10
Memory Box - Catalina Wreath
Wild Orchid Crafts - flowers
Hobby House - pearls 
Image coloured with Promarkers

Instead of a card I elected to use my new die and make a gift bag.  Hazel  (Hazels Baskets of Joy)  has been making gift bags with this die for so long now and I have always admired them so I decided to succumb and buy the die.  I keep saying I have enough dies - but then always find another one that I really need!  And how many of us do that!!!!

I do hope you will decide to play along with us this time.  This is the prize pack you have a chance to win and it is a great prize.



Before I go I just wanted to say that I have been having problems with my computer.  It crashed a couple of days ago and I lost some settings. I have been looking at all your blogs but have been unable to publish any comments.  Fortunately John has sussed it out again and I am up and running so watch out for my comments!

Enjoy what's left of the weekend.

As I am fond of vintage I just LOVE the stamp you used on this beautiful card!
Over here it's raining, raining and rainingalmost every day. A typical Dutch winter. But it seems there will be snow in the weekend and that's better for a walk in the woods in our village (I hope so).
Have a nice week,
Lia xx
