There...

is just something about blue flowers that gets me every time.  I couldn't  tell you how many times I have colored a floral image blue.... I never get tired of it.  And it's strange because blue is not a color that I am drawn to in any other aspect of life.  In fact, I have had painters here in the house the last two days and not a single room was painted blue....although I will say, I guess, that one of the bathrooms is now a pale teal. So, maybe that is a bit on the blue side after all.  Anyways, this particular card is for a friend who is going thru a trying time in her life.  We all have those rough patches that really test us....and often times we feel like we are going through our troubles alone.  I want, in a small way, to let this person know that I am thinking of her and that this difficult time will eventually pass. By the way, she is a "bling" girl.  I hope I put enough sparkle on......This is a Penny Black image called Sundail..  It is a terrific all purpose floral image.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts Luscious Patterned Flowers.  I plan to enter this card into Hero Arts Bring on the Bling monthly challenge



as well as Simon Says Stamp Challenge "Thinking of You" / or "Sympathy" card.



And here is my card.  I hope it brings a little smile to her day.


Thank you for stopping by....

Be well,
Sheila

Hi sweetie. It has been way to long since I have been here. So sorry but life is crazy it seems this year. So I don't get to visit everyone's blog like I want to but I am trying to play catch up most times and leave a little love. So in saying that, I want to say that your beautiful and magnificant blue card makes me smile big. I so love the way you blingged this flower out! Just love it. It really pops. Thanks for sharing another HA creation. I can't remember the last time I shared a creation with their product on my blog and it would be great to get my wood stamps inky again. Hopefully this weekend. Miss everyone in our HA flickr group. I hope you and your sweet famiy are doing well and enjoying the autumn season. Have a Happy up coming Thanksgiving. Big Hugs.
