Purple and Pink

(This is my second post for today! If you came by looking for the Wags 'n Whiskers Blog Hop, just scroll down or click HERE !!)

Good morning! Boy, time is just flying by. We celebrated my husband's birthday earlier this week...complete with roast beef dinner! We'll be celebrating my son's birthday on Monday. He'll be turning 17. Yup, that doesn't make me feel old at all. (just to clarify, that last comment was DRIPPING with sarcasm, lol). Oh, and my hubby and I will be celebrating our anniversary at the end of the month too! We're hoping to sneak in a weekend getaway at some point. Any suggestions?? In recent years, we've gone to the Elmhurst Inn, St. Jacobs, Niagara Falls and last year we went to the Benmiller Inn. So, I'm open to suggestions! (as long as it's within Southwestern will only be for a weekend!)

This week, the Scrapettes are throwing down a colour challenge...we would like you to break out all things PINK and PURPLE to participate this week for the chance to win a fantastic prize from The Town Scrapper!!

For my card, I used one of Phebe's exclusive Victoria Case stamps called "Sophie Feeding the Birds". I stamped her on Neenah cardstock and coloured her with my Copic markers. Those pretty hydrangeas are from Prima. I love these flowers, and have bought several packages in different colours from The Town Scrapper. Confession time--I may have a slight hoarding issue with them! lol I also used jewelry spacers as flower centres. Phebe carries some gorgeous spacers and charms. I like to stock up on them whenever I pay her a visit. The sentiment is also from The Town Scrapper's exclusive Victoria Case release.

You can contact Phebe at The Town Scrapper by telephone at 519-882-0623 or via email at If you are close enough to take a trip to visit Phebe in person, you will fall in love with Petrolia's small-town charm. I love going out to visit. There are so many gorgeous Victorian homes with wrap around porches, gingerbread trim and TURRETS!! Oh how I would love to have a house with a turret!! lol However, if you are not within driving distance, don't despair! Phebe will ship orders to you. She carries so many wonderful product lines.

Have a blessed Friday!

Hello Melanie,

You should try The Little Inn of Bayfield. It is so beautiful there.
