Speedy the Cat's Friends' Blog Challenge #11

Cathleen selected the challenge this week. She wanted us to use punches. I LOVE punches so this was a great challenge I thought. My sister, Lynn, taught me this clever little trick of punching with the Martha Stewart punch without putting the wings out. I did it that way for the white panel behind the rose. It is so nice to have a clever sister to give you a new idea to try. I love this Momma's Favorite Purple paper from Mark's Finest Papers. It is the prettiest purple paper I have ever found. I used the Spring rose set for my card this week. It is one of my favorites from Mark's Finest papers. Even the lovely purple ribbon is from Mark's Finest Papers. That Faith, she just has it all. So don't forget to get over there to see all the new things she keeps adding to the store over there at Mark's Finest Papers.

I am so pleased to see this challenge growing to be so popular. Thanks to Faith's generosity with the prizes, it really makes it fun to come join in. I hope you get out your favorite punches, make a pretty card, and if you have a Speedy the Cat stamp set, you know we would love to see how you used it. Please link your card over on Mark's Finest Papers blog site.

Very pretty! I agree, that purple is the best, and I don't even care that much for purple.
