#180 - Letter "X" and the Colour Purple

Hello Everyone! Julie Ann here. Just imagine, we've almost reached the end of the alphabet challenge here at the Dragon's Dream. We so enjoyed looking at what you created for Gabrielle's recipe of 'U' and a quotation and we'll be announcing the Dream Boats soon. Meanwhile it's my turn to choose, and what a tricky letter. This fortnight we'd like to see what you can create using the colour purple (now, that reminds me of a book!) and the letter 'X'. I hope you won't think I'm cheating because I went for a word that includes 'X' rather than one that begins with the letter! Remember we need you to be working on a tag of some kind; to see at least one stamped image on your tag and that tag must include the colour purple and the letter 'X' in some form somewhere! We do hope that you'll enjoy meeting the challenge. The Design Team and our very talented and creative Guest Designer, Deborah have come up with some inspiration for you!
Julie Ann - Text

Deborah - Xmas Cheer

Gabrielle - xiexie

Helen - X-ray

Silvia - X, die Unbekannte

Elizabeth - Hugs and Kisses

So there you have it, we would like to see "Purple" and the letter "X" on your tags along with at least one real stamp. Leave us a direct link back to your tag, then we can pay your blog a visit.
