A very purple card

I've been a busy bee today, done a lot of DT stuff but wanted to do something I could show on my blog now, so I decided I would use one of the fab digi images that Lynda gave me. She has just opened a new digi store called Cut It Up Paper Crafts and has some really great images for sale. Check out her blog too (link above) for some gorgeous cards made with some of them.
I had alerady coloured my image in yesterday but didn't get around to putting it on a card so when I saw the sketch over at Papertake Weekly, I knew just what I was going to use.
My camera has died again so I had to scan this one. It's a little blurry around the edges but you can still see this fabby image and the papers so I've posted it anyway.
All the papers are downloads and I think they are all from different places but I'm not sure where. I know the one I have stuck my image in is from the set I won over at the Kaboodle challenge. I have used this set loads since I got it because it has loads of different colours in it, so handy :)
This particular image is Fashion Karina and isn't she fab? You have got to go over to see teh rest of Lynda's designs, they are all just as good as this one, and it's not just girls either, she has some cool boys too.
Well that 's the card done and I have a little bit of news. First of all, did anyone notice I didn't have a card for the Little Yellow Comapany yesterday? Well that's because Claire has closed down the challenge blog as there were hardly any entries. The store is still open though.
Also a bit of excitment for me yesterday, I won Steve's cryptic quiz yesterday over at Lisa and Steve's challenge blog Sophisticats!! I was one of 3 who got all the answers correct and then I was the first to reply with the correct answer for the tie breaker! So I won myself a WOJ stamp, YAY :D :D
And the last little bit of unimportant news that no-one will be interested in is.........My MOJO IS BACK!!!!! Well on it's way home anyway. I had loads of fun with this card and can't wait to get started on some more, but first I want to catch up with a few weeks of DT work so I have loads of time to play over the next few weeks.
Thanks for stopping by today, please do leave me a comment to let me know what you think of this card. Is my mojo returning or is it just tricking me? Either way though, I really don't care because I am not depressed anymore and I am a happy chappy :D
Oh before I sign off, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has left me comments and emailed me over the last few weeks when I was feeling down. You really have no idea how much you have all helped me through this rough time. I know if I didn't have you all to support and encourage me, I would of had to go to my GP to get some happy pills but now I don't need them :)
And a huge thank you to CURT xx. Curt left me the funniest comment last week when I had done nothing but cry all day and that really was the turning point for me. It really made me laugh and I even made a card the next day after not making one for days :)
Right no more talk of depressing stuff. I'm off to see what you have all been up too.

Hugs Lora
