Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning folks and it's time for February's monthly birthstone challenge over at
Daring Cardmakers....and this month is......

and before we go any further.......big apologies for the crappy photo
it's so dark and dismal here and I had to resort to drastic measures under the halogen lights in the kitchen and beware it's very very AMETHYST
Edited to add: managed to get a slightly better pic

Papers: Purple from my stash
page from an old book over stamped with Hero Arts "Thinking of You" image
with Versamark Ink and heat Embossed with Snow White embossing powder
coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Milled Lavender & Dusty Concord
Nestabilities Frames
Sentiment: Hero Arts "Thinking of You"
one covered with paper and inked

and there is a fab prize up for grabs this week from
Craft Obsessions

I've been given this award by the lovely Jacqui at my local craft store....Simply did I ever manage to function before Jacqui opened her little heaven of all things crafty and a big thank you for thinking of me....I really appreciate it.
Now this award is a bit like the old gal herself.....been round the block a few times and I'm sure that all of the folks that inspire me have already had it several I am chickening out on passing it on and to be honest there are far too many folks to mention......and as for the interesting facts.....well not a lot interesting about little old me that you don't already know.....I know I have my party pooper hat on today and if you saw would probably grumpy face too.
Catch up with you all later.....Hugs Kath xxxx

Another fantastic card, Kath. I seem to be unable to read any posts on Jacquis blog. Maybe I'm just a bit stupid. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong, lol

What a lovely idea to use the old book page to stamp on Kath.
The ‘Thinking Of You’ stamps are beautiful and so delicate.

Thanks for joining the Daring Cardmakers this week and good luck in the draw.

lovely card I really liked the amethyst color so peaceful and I love to use book pages so this is one of my favs.

Beautiful! Amethyst is my birthstone, but I remember growing up HATING purple. It's starting to grow on me now, though!
