So glad you dropped by today!  Do you have ladies or girls in your life that wear hats all the time?  I do! 

 When I initially saw the Hats Off bundle I thought of all the masculine cards I could make with this set and I went to work creating cards.

Then I saw a hat at my daughters house that she wears frequently that was all jazzed up and I got the inspiration to do this card!

I chose to do it using our purple families as I have several of my current friends and customers that are in love with purple.  So this card is for all the purple lovers out there!

I also used the new Spiral Dye Stamp to create the design on the hat!

I hope you enjoy this card and please leave me a comment below!  I love to hear from all of you!
