The Color Purple -- challenge time!

It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge. This time it's a color challenge and by golly, it's my all-time favorite, PURPLE. This adorable stork is a brand new IO image by artist Leigh Hannan, the sentiment is part of a new clear set by Kalani Allred and both will be available after CHA at the end of the month.

Live Laugh Love... Always

My newest favorite Impression Obsession stamp is Live Laugh Love. When I first saw it, I immediately thought of my good friend, Carla, who lives by this sentiment and I *had* to make something with it. So, since this is my first creation in a looong time and Carla has always been one of my greatest supporters, sounding board and such a terrific friend, I decided to use this stamp in her honor. Love you, Carla!!

The stamps are actually a CHA Winter sneak peek and aren't available online yet, but they'll be ready for purchase soon! In fact, you might be able to find them in your local stamp store, so be sure to ask for them. The newsprint background is available now, though, so go get one! It's the perfect touch for almost any card.

Hope you're having a great start to 2011! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the rest of the IO design team to check out some more sneak peeks and some old favorites.
