365 Cards, Shades of Purple

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥

Wow, never thought I would get here. It has been one of those days for certain.

Woke up to hear an old friend had passed away, complications of Agent Orange - for you youngsters Agent Orange was a defoliant used in VietNam during the war that caused our young soldiers irreparable harm.

Then, as I struggled with the purple card for today I heard the fire and EMT guys outside, taking my lovely next door neighbor away. She has been so supportive of my cards (and bought so many ! after spending the afternoons enjoying each and every one of them) and is such a dear.

Then the internet disappeared - and the repair said no one could come until next Tuesday - what ??? I must live without the internet for all that time ?? And I haven't paid the bills or renewed my library books yet ....

So I gave up the purple card, which was on its third try anyway, as I couldn't find the template I had downloaded, and so had to cut from hand, which leaves me now without being able to give someone credit for it, and the sewing machine bobbin won't cooperate and tore one of my versions. I figured I will just miss this challenge.... So I spent the afternoon working on a future challenge project.

But, just as I was ready to go sit down and read (a banned book) the internet started up again, and I had to rush and finish this....

Over on Papercraft Star forum there was a Kristina question, like how could this day get worse... that was my day today.

So, 365 Cards, purple challenge, finally here and posted. (I know it looks blurry, but it really is the paper and not me for a change.) Whew.
