Cottage Roses and Gingham

Good morning!

I hope you're having a good start to your week ... I'm struggling with what I think is a trapped nerve in my shoulder ... I've had it off and on for over a month - It's painful and difficult to sleep and I have restricted movement in my arm ... Unfortunately it's my right arm too and I'm right handed ... 
Still I'm sure it will ease ... 

Today at City Crafter we have a new challenge - set for us by the lovely Charlene ...



Char is asking that we create a project using Roses and Gingham


If I'm being honest ... I really don't like my card this week  ... Maybe I should have gone with different colours ... 


I loved the inspiration photo too ... 
So I'm sure you guys can do a lot better than I did ... 


... And I made a mistake last week when I said it was sweet Sue Lelli's last week with us ... My lovely friend is still with us this week as Guest Designer ... 
"So sorry Sue" ... Put it all down to what we call a Senior Moment!
Please hop over to the blog and check out Sue's wonderful work this week along with the fabulous examples from the rest of the team - I hope you'll be inspired to join us

I'll be back tomorrow - Till than have a beautiful day 
and thanks so much for stopping by

Well to my eyes this card looks just fine, I really like it! Love the blue tones and how the butterfly you chose picks up on those colours!

ope your trapped nerve gets better soon!!

I don't know why you wouldn't like your card, Ros. I think it's beautiful! I love the soft colours, fresh gingham and your pretty layout xx

Sylvia said...

What is not to like, Ros! Love the colors, your gingham is perfect in blue! Have a beautiful Tuesday!

Beautiful photo, beautiful card. I really don't see why you don't like this card.
I hope your shoulder recovers soon. I've got a similar problem in my left shoulder, I can't lift it without getting severe pain. X

Diane said...

I think your card is very soft and pretty...and I heart gingham and roses...so have to try and get this in before I leave on Thursday....hope you feel better soon, I know how those aches and pains just appear out of nowhere as we get older, who said getting older was fun anyway...lol!!

Oh, that can be painful indeed, have you tried tiger balm? This might ease the pain a bit? Don't know why you're not pleased with your card Ros, because I, too, think it's so elegant! Love the colours! Hugs, Ira x

You are way too critical because I think this card is very PRETTY! I LOVE the blue and the roses and the lace trim! THX for putting up with me at CCCB! I had a BLAST!

Linda R said...

Well I happen to think it look beautiful. I just love the little butterfly. I had a pain in my shoulder for so long. I finally had to get a cortisone shot. That did the trick. Hopefully your will bet better soon.

Hugs~

Hugs, Heidi:)

I hope you feel better soon! I was having a tough week as well, sigh..... all those painting!

Such a pretty card!

Tracy said...

I think it's just liveliness is Ros. I like how you put the sentiment diagonally and that butterfly is gorgeous. Hope your arm starts feeling better soon. Hugs!

Barbara said...

Well, I certainly can't add anything new towards the "I don't like my card" section... I think it's beautiful, too, but I know what you mean... sometimes it just doesn't feel right to oneself. But don't worry: anybody who'll receive it will absolutely ADORE it!

Jinny Newlin said...

Gosh, I absolutely adore this inspiration pic, and what a beautiful take you've created with it!
