That Naughty Kitty is at it again! (SG 602 Cat & Fish). I feel as though "The Sisters", aka Shirley's 2 Girls, design their images and sentiments with me in mind. See what I mean? There I go, thinking "It's All About ME"! I mean honestly what adult continues to be called "Trouble" by complete strangers? Everywhere I go that is how I am referred to (hey trouble, what's up trouble, O look here comes trouble). Is it stamped across my forehead? Nope, I snapped a photo just to make sure, see------> Yes I was supposed to be driving but I've got great peripheral.

This week's TWIST is to use the color PURPLE somewhere on your project. The base of my card is pale plum and of course you can see the purplish stripes on the DP. I embossed small dots onto the lavender strip and used Stampin Up! punches for the edges of both the green & pale plum strips. Green square was die cut using Nestabilities. After coloring my image with copics, I rounded the corners then used foam squares to mount it. I may go back and add Diamond Glaze to the fish bowl but I was afraid that I would mess it up before snapping my photos. Let's CONGRATULATE last week's winners(remember we had two because last week was invite a friend to play along). First up is ANGIE, Second was ANNE because she invited her friend Vanja to play along.

Hello, Everyone seemed to do dogs and you used a cat! I love it.
Swimming slightly against the current, doesn't constitute 'Trouble'. You, however, would probably swim directly into a hurricane. LOL
I love the card and you are a delight. The photo is wonderful. Have a beautiful day. Later, Linda
