Mo’s Digis by Cards by Candy


These are all the cards I have created using the beautiful illustrations created by Maureen Manning (see link on sidebar).  I LOVE coloring her images and creating cards with them.  I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do!

Happy Card making!

Greeting Crafty Cardmakers

I apologize for not updating sooner; however, my computer died and I just got a new one. I believe that I will update my blog every Saturday (to start out). I am working on some new designs that I would love to get your feedback on.

Also, stay tuned because in upcoming posts I will introduce some new techniques, terms and toots (tutorials).

Happy Cardmaking!


Remember: There are no mistakes in cardmaking, just opportunities for creativity. :-)

"Know when to Fold'em" Card Class

Today I taught a card class at Oakland Community College's Auburn Hills campus. Thank you to Ms. Marilyn, Ms. Olivia, Michelle,Brenda D., Alicia, Brenda and Fran for joining me today. I will post your beautiful cards later.

I taught the ladies how to make 4 gorgeous cards that involved fancy folds. We made the "Diagonal Double Pocket" card, "Pyramid" card, "Wiper" Card and as a bonus I taught them the basics of the "Tri-Shutter" card with a twist. I hope that they enjoyed making the cards, because I enjoyed teaching them.

Remember, my next class will be the end October or beginning of November. I will send out an email to let you know the details.

Check back here for more updates, class information and toots.

Happy Card making!!

Greetings Everyone! I have finally put my blog together. It is is still a work in progress, but I think it is coming along well. I will post lots of pictures and toots (tutorials). I hope that you aren't too overwhelm by the beautiful color purple and will continue to check back often to see what the Purple Card Lady is up to.

The title of my blog came from several different sources. First, was my love (okay obsession) with all things purple. Second, is my love (definitely obsession) with creating cards and third was after I met Sue Nelson from at the Rubber Stamp Convention in August (Thanks Sue!).
