Friday challenge...askew


Well Ok then I have to askew ( that's blog talk for ask you) is my image askew??? I think that's not all that's askew this week. First the critter is in and then out and then my deck sealer is crap for the birds so my whole week is askew. Hopefully things will be better over the weekend. My card is for the Friday challenge at notimetostamp which was to make your image be askew or off center I guess. It's hard for me because being off center and askew is the norm for my life lately. Dang it's tough getting old and I'm not dealing too well. Soooo....here's my card with my image off to the left. I used the lillies from Flourishes calendar set and little phrase from their tag along set. Easy peasy card with minor coloring on the flowers some nifty BG ( DD gave me for my birthday) put out by Glitz. Added some lace to the side bar and fini.
Well here it is the weekend again and I regret to inform you I missed Timeless Tuesday this week as I was busy as a bee...buzzing along with my prep to get things in order so I can sell this huge house and quit working so hard. I have a party to attend tomorrow evening for my great nephew who turns 30 ( can't remember back to those days) and so his Mom who's my oldest niece is throwing a party. Hope your weekend is full of fun and hey guess what??? I need to offer up some blog candy for hitting over 60,000 hits. Can't believe it, I think I'll have to shed a few tears on that one. I feel the love with all those visits. So next week I'll post some goodies and you can enter to win. Come back around Weds. and I'll have it up and ready for grabs.

This is very striking mom! Love the askew look! :-) I agree, my life is off center too -- and that's the new norm! LOVE YA!

Love this fabulous 'askew' card, Pat! And thanks so much for joining us in this week's "Stamp Simply" Gone Askew Challenge!

Sounds like your week is been crazy ... I don't know how you're holding up with this crazy animal in/out of your house! Hope that gets resolved soon!

Enjoy your weekend, Kiddo!

Love this card! Trying to figure out, the base of the card, what stack is that from? The Pink with the black scrolls..very, very pretty. I think I have something similar if not the same and never thought about using the paper in this way. Soo pretty!

Pat, this card is just stunning!! I never thought to color those lilies pale pink, but I love the look! The lacy trim makes this askew card all come together perfectly!
Enjoy the party and have FUN!! Have a great weekend while you're at it ;)

Perfect "old ldy" card - lots of classy black lace. I'm glad you're "askew". Not sure I would like you all rigid and perfect. Best of luck with the house crap. I can so relate in the upheaval that is my life lately.

Clickety, click, click just singin' along the 60,000+ visits with lots o' lovin' on one rockus rubbermaid totin' one diligent dust rag intermeshed in creativity. Now, askew off side, wasn't that like a foul in game regulation times ?! This on the side approach pinks the cheeks with smiles. Good exercise all the same. Pretty, good go, girl!
Happy ticker clickin' celebration.
