I just want to start this post off by saying thank you to all of you for your sweet and uplifting comments. My heart needed to hear that I am not alone. That others are facing or have faced what I am going through. The kindness of the crafting and blogging community has uplifted my spirits.  I thank each and every one of you who have kept my husband and I in your prayers. Words cannot express my gratitude. And please know that I keep each one of you also in my heart and prayers.....

Since I mentioned in my last post that I am not a big purple user and many of you agreed with me. I decided to challenge myself with yet another set of cards packaged in a soft lavendery purple dotted with light yellow roses and tea stained twill tape.  I am pleasantly happy with this cream, lavender, and light yellow color scheme.  It is a perfect color scheme for a beautiful easter greeting card.

Pattern paper is from "Little Yellow Bicycle".  

Flowers are from "Recollections" found at your local Michael's store.

Stamp set is from "Paper Trey Ink" 

I hope I have inspired you to pull out those purple papers and put them to use, especially, since spring time will be rolling around.  This lovely set of cards and tag will be up later on today in my newly reopened Etsy shop. 

Have a beautiful day
