Thanks a Bunch

Yup, I'm still cranking out the thank you cards for end-of-year stuff!!
I think those sweet little DeNami carrots, part of the adorable Veggies Petit Four set, are just the cutest. I know, you are probably scratching your head over their purpleness, right? My colors for this project were inspired by the current DeNami Design Color Challenge:
And I was bound and determined to use my Veggies! Oh, I suppose I could have gone with purple cabbage for a similar card, but I just wasn't prepared to settle for ho-hum. Especially when I could go for "WOW!" with healthful beauties like these:

And besides, my "thanks a bunch" sentiment doesn't work nearly as well with cabbages. So, {purple} carrots it had to be!!

This is another card that I may have trouble parting with. I had such fun constructing my miniature scene!!

Thanks for taking a peek at what I've been up to here on Bliss Road!
Emily

What a fantastic scene! I really love the whole darn thing :) And we get purple beans, and purple potatoes, but never purple carrots...and now I want some. How funny would the kids look getting those on a plate? lol
