Purple Tulips


The rain never did let up today, but I managed to get a lot done before my migraine hit. After I rested and took a little pain medicine, it let up enough... just enough for me to obsess about getting this card posted. I took these pictures tonight and I'm not happy with the colors. If the sun comes out tomorrow, I may re-shoot this card.
This card is made with this set drawn by Melanie M, from GinaK Designs. One day last week, when they were doing their sneak peaks (which I hate, because I don't have patience when it comes to that stuff, just show me already! lol) I saw the beautiful rose on a couple of blogs and then the tulip... and after I recovered from hyperventilating, I decided that I wouldn't be able to live without this flower set. I needed more flowers. I needed more flowers, yeah right. LOL! I really do like these flowers and just wait until you see the roses I colored. I impressed myself. Just kidding...not. Your expectations of me are a lot higher than mine so I do impress myself sometimes, because I'm not expecting it. Seriously, this is a very well drawn set of flowers which makes it very easy to color. By the way, did you notice that the tulips are purple? I don't know why I always color my tulips as if they only come in one color.Speaking of coloring flowers, I might have a new teaching opportunity in my town--even before the Hobby Lobby is built. I'm going to work out the particulars tomorrow or Friday.


The finished card is 7 x 4.
Stamps: A Year of Flowers (GinaK), Greeting(Stampin Up)
Ink: Warm Violet(ColorBox)
Card stock: Dots and Weave(Bazzill)
Other: color pencils, ribbon.

Thanks for your prayers on my medicine saga. I think I've figured out that it wasn't the medicine that made me itch or break out, because I continued to until Monday of this week and I haven't taken that medicine since last Tuesday. The doctor took me off Medicine number 2 last week because of a possible reaction just to make sure. I'm back on the first medicine-- the normal dose-- still with no noticible side effects. Ok, I'm going back to bed. I'm satisfied that I did this post today (it's 11:55!)like I wanted. I can rest now...
Choosing Joy, Jacki

Thanks for showing off your space! I love looking for new organzing ideas and was happy you put a link to your space over in Heartfelt Greetings comments :) You got me when you said "you have to make your area accessible". . .I had a crafting room all to myself but found I never used it b/c I like to be around my family. I've since moved everything to the living room but it looks "junky" -- I'm sending a link of your picture to my husband. . .maybe we can make some of your ideas work for us. Glad to have "met" you! I scrolled through your blog and you have some beautiful work.

Beautiful card, Jacki!! I don't know why the colors don't look right to you but they sure look beautiful to me:) So sorry about your migraine - they're the pits! Glad you got that medicine worked out, too.
