For the Love of Roses

Good Evening/Morning Sweet Friends 
(Depending on when you read this post)

I love love love roses!!


And using this gorgeous rose for this Fitztown Challenge couldn't have made me any happier.  I don't know why - but I wanted to color this rose BLUE!!! 

For this challenge it's ANYTHING GOES with a twist of flower/s and pattern paper.  There are some amazing changes at Fitztown so it would be a great idea to read the updates on the Fitztown Blog - it's all on the sidebar and top of the page under Challenge Rules.  Once you are familiar with everything its time to join in the challenge with us.

For this card I colored the rose with Copics and wanted the image to be a little larger when I printed it so that it would be the main focus of the card.  I cut the rose out and added it to the pattern cardstock. It took a while to find some pattern cardstock I thought would look good with the rose (and added some mounting tape to the back of the rose).  I think this pattern cardstock worked perfectly.  And then I just added a row of bling on the right side and a little to some of the petals of the rose.  What do you think?    

Thanks so much for stopping by and I am looking forward to seeing your creations!!

  1. This is so beautiful, Laine! I love roses, too, and this one in blue is stunning. Wouldn't it be great if we could have roses that color growing in our garden? :-D It's so nice to be back after the holidays and in my visiting routine again. Hugz, NC

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
