Allsorts Challenge - Purple advent

There's a bit of a theme going on here, principally because back in September I bought a pack of these purple Christmas sentiments (Craftwork cards) and then discovered a pack of papermania 12 x12 papers that I bought thinking they would be pink and purple only to find they were more like pink and grey!
I saw the theme on Allsorts and coloured these over the weekend. The first is a Mo Manning Digistamp and the second and third are Pink gem design stamps. I used promarkers, cos I've got the whole set now thanks to Brenda's husband! If I had to choose one for Allsorts, it would be the last one (even though it is a bad photo). That snowman is so jolly!
Thanks for looking - I hope you're Christmas preparations are going well!

Well, why not purple for Christmas? Makes a change from red and green. Great cards, and yes, that Snowman is very cute!

I love purple any time of the year :o)
These are lovely Sally, hope the hectic week isn't taking too much out of you. I know our teachers are maxed out with plays and carol service rehearsals. Bet you are looking forward to the hols more than the kids.

You've certainly got a purple theme going on lately Sally, but why not, it certainly makes a change from the usual Christmas colours.
I love all these cards and you've managed to use that Papermania paper really well. I was given some a couple of years ago and was so disappointed with it, like you said more grey than anything and not much christmas about it either. It's still sitting in the cupboard virtually untouched!! If you want anymore let me know!!
Happy Crafting.

Love all of these cards Sally as they are all in my favourite colour of lilac!! I particularly like the image on the middle card too - haven't seen this before!
