inspiration avenue weekly challenge.... peaches & cream

i've been sick this week so i originally was gonna opt out of submitting an entry for this week's challenge. first i thought i had one of the nasty flus but i don't think so now. i never had a fever & i think i've recovered too quickly for the flu. oh well... i almost wish it had been to get it over with but now i still can look forward to it! joy!

my lovely husband brought me a bouquet of flowers to cheer me & what do you know... there were some beautiful "peachy" roses.

so first i made a card....

i've been wanting to learn how to use photoshop elements & so i got out my new book ... "for dummies" & played around with some of the filters.  i really love the watercolor one....

so then i was "inspired" to take it a little further & i attached it to a canvas board & added some gel medium for texture....

there is so much talent on inspiration avenue so pop on over & see this week's entries....


  1. that's a beautifully romantic image pat :)) wow!! i melted just by looking at it :)) you really have a eye for compositions that tell a story. to me .. all of the images you take has a story to tell ... and i love it! this is a beautiful entry for peaches and cream :))

  2. Hi Pat,
    So glad to hear you are feeling better.
    I love working in Photoshop elements too. I've got a lot to learn. It can do so much. Your entry is beautiful. Can not believe you managed to do an entry being sick.
    Tell your daughter that it is not normal at all for Houston to have snow, especially early Dec. That's crazy weather.... snow in Houston!:). I'm sure it's gone already.:)

  3. What a wonderful idea Pat, now the flowers from your husband will be there for you to admire and appreciate whenever you want - so sweet!

  4. It's easy to lose hours playing in Photoshop! Lovely dreamy and romantic piece. Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better.

  5. I'm glad you are on the mend ~ and maybe you will avoid the nasty flu altogether. Beautiful photo and story! What a sweet husband!

  6. Wonderful piece, Pat! Glad you're feeling better.
