Purple Geranium



Well guess who forgot to prepare their mid month Penny Black and More post ?

I scheduled the one for the challenge blog and totally forgot to do my own, so I'm afraid it's going to be very short and sweet as this morning my shoulder and arm don't want to get going so typing is rather painful. I am going to pop over to the Playground with this one as the tags are made from offcuts.

The team have come up with some more beautiful creations so do pop over and take a peek.

Love the ethereal look Brenda and the ghostly looking background just catches your eye nicely.

Take care of that shoulder and arm Brenda with lost of rest sweets (which is easier to say rather than do).

I love the lilacy blue colour ink you have used Brenda and the touch of yellow behind the image makes the flowers stand out beautifully.

Being late does not detract from the loveliness, Brenda! The watercolor splash is beautiful, and your colors and shading are so striking - as the end of summer and the beginning of autumn slightly changes the hues in rich colors. Beautiful! hugs, de

MaryH said...

Bummer that you are still having some pain issues, and I hope this soon gets gone. However, you've managed to do a gorgeously beautiful card anyway. Love the subtle background designs, with the soft watercolor look of the focus flower. Pretty mat colors, and the cute wooden button holding on the precious tags. Take care, feel better real soon. Lots of hugs & TFS.
