Hello … bonjour! Our new challenge has just started over at Time Out … and it’s a special one. Today is Epilepsy Awareness Day … also called Purple Day, as the colour purple and the purple ribbon represent epilepsy. It’s a day that’s close to our hearts at Time Out because Sandie, our beloved leader, has epilepsy. You can find out more here … and by visiting Sandie’s blog here, where she talks about her own experience of living with the condition. We’d like to help raise awareness of this often misunderstood and complicated illness … so our theme for this fortnight is … a lot or a little purple … with an optional twist of friendship (we thought it would be nice to send a purple card to a friend to give them a smile!). Here’s the card I sent to give a dear friend a smile …
This delicious image and sentiment are from a set called Simple Things, from The Greetery … I love it! I was delighted to be able to chose it (and another set) after winning a GC to the store last year … and promptly set about finding some inspiration for using it. Unsurprisingly, given her delicious CAS style, Laurie at Soapbox Creations provided me with just that, with this card (thanks, Laurie!). I just changed the colour palette … made my eucalyptus purple and did the sentiment in espresso ink … added those delicate splatters … and the set itself did the rest!
How will you interpret our special Epilepsy Awareness theme … and will you use a lot or just a little purple? We’d love to see what you create in our gallery. This time round, we’re sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays (thanks, Michele) who are offering a US$25 GC to a randomly drawn player who uses the optional friendship twist. As usual, our overall winner will be chosen by the DT … and will be invited to guest design with us in a future challenge. Details are over at Time Out … along with lots of fabulous ideas from our brilliant DT … and from our talented Guest Designer, Kavya at Handmade By Kavya. Do pop over and visit Kavya … you can have a wonderful browse round the all the loveliness … and you can always say hello while you’re there!
