Lavender Roses

Lavender Roses 2013

First of all I think I’m going crazy……. Really…… I hope this card does not post 3 times because I uploaded 1 of the cards and pushed publish… WHY, have no idea, so I deleted it off my blog. So I started again and I got 2 of my pictures of the cards uploaded and went right up and pushed publish…… WHY, have no idea, so I deleted them off my blog again, see what I mean!!! I’m loosening it, right??? On top of all of that I should of uploaded my card days ago. I just have to much on my mind. I do not know, can’t make excuses for myself. My card is for Color Me Creative Challenge #59 and it is all about PASTELS. It ends on January 18 at 8:00pm. So you still have time to enter the challenge if you would like and we would love to see your card. We have a sponsor and that is Paper Make Up Stamps and the name of my image is Moody For Flowers, they have some wonderful images so stop by and check then out.

The punch I used on the inside is from Creative Memories. Let the inside open for a sentiment or you can write in a message.

Lavender roses markers

These are the copic markers I used to color the image. Sorry my V17 has some ink on it, did not catch it. I do not now how often you clean you copics but that is a job in it self. Here is the close up of the image all colored. I think it looks so pretty with this fading frame around it.

I've lost my mind many times of the years, so at least you're not alone. Beautiful color combination with the purples and yellows and your coloring is fantastic.

Hey Patricia, I reckon yours and my mind have gone off together! That's the sort of daft trick I do on a regular basis, so don't fret, you are among friends! lol
On a positive note, you got the card all done and posted in the end didn't you and beautiful it is too! Love the colour choice and the cheesecloth accent. Love it all. xxx

Don't be so hard on yourself Patricia, we all have those weird days and I am sure everyone would agree!
Your card is gorgeous, your colours are serene and the image is so sweet.
You certainly are the queen of designing cards inside and out!

Oh, Patricia, some days are diamonds, some days are stones, and some days are boulders. This sounds like a boulder to me! LOL!
But you finally got her posted and a good thing--she's just gorgeous! Love the pretty pastels you chose, your beautiful coloring, you die cuts, design, & fab flowers! So, so pretty. Love the other embellies, too!
And who has time to clean Copics? Certainly not me! ;^)
