You & Me, Always

Here's a gorgeous image from Slinky Tart, this used to be Stamping Chef, if you are familiar with her images, so if you have been on Facebook or her website before and been wondering where she went, she has changed company names and is now known as Slinky Tart. She'd added some super hot images to her site as well!

So, here's a little fact about Epilepsy--this will affect at least 1% of the world's population. Over 30% of the cases, doctor's have no idea why a patient has it.  Two thirds of patients who have epilepsy will be helped with the first medication they are given, regardless of the medication that it is.  The remaining patients will often not ever have complete control with medications.  This leads to a life long issue of uncontrollable seizures, medications and increased health issues.  Once a patient has tried more than 2 medications or is simultaneously on three medications doctors have little hope that they will be medically controlled.  At that point being tested for surgery is often a valid option.  Most people do fear surgery (and rightfully so).  Frankly when I found out that it was coming, my first response was calling every church and friend I knew to start asking them to pray because I know only about 30% qualify for surgery so despite the realization that surgery is approaching, it was super important to qualify.

OK, let's get on with the question of the day--what's your favorite color?  how about your least favorite?  lately my fav is tending towards pink/orange.  I seem to use blue/purple the least.

How about you?

  1. I love purples, but when it comes to coloring with copics, I'm haveing a hard time with purples.
    Lately I like a peach-teal- or peach-lightolive-combo. I do not know why. :)

  2. I love to play with all the colors but blue is my favorite color, and the least one is grey.

  3. My favorite color . . . so hard to pick just one. It's a tie between black, blue or pink. However my favorite color combos to use in card making is purple and cream - or maybe green and cream,

  4. My favorite color is blue, with pink running a close second. My least favorite color is ... hmmmmm ...... I don't really have a color I don't like!

  5. This image is smokin'! Love this card Holley!

    My faorite colors are pinks and reds, pretty much any value from pale pastels to neons and Darks. My least favorites are oranges and purples. Not sure why, but I just don't use a lot of them. :)

    I understand about the 30%. My first husband was among them, but was not a candidate for surgery. Sometimes it was scary when he was having seizures. I think they finally found some newer drugs that were controlling them better than in the past though.

    I am so glad you are doing so well! I pray someday everyone with epilepsy will be completely cured!

  6. I didn't know Stamping chef changed their name. Thank you for the info. I love the card you made wit their image.
    Also, thanks for sharing those facts about epilepsy. I didn't know those things. I'm glad your surgery was successful and that you are fine.
    As for me, I love pink, turquoise, teal, purple, blue and white colours the most. I'm not too keen of green and blach or grey though.
    Hugs! xx

  7. super sexy card Holley, and as always your coloring is fantastic. I love that lace too. My favorite color is light purple, but lately I've been doing blue/green combination on my cards. My least favorite color is orange - but ironically I have an orange card on my blog today! It's funny when people ask me what my favorite color is I always want to ask "for what?" I mean I love purple, but I wouldn't want a purple house!

  17. Most of the people, who live in or nearby the country’s capital, are often plagued by the hustle and bustle of the traffic laden roads and dense population dispersion. Totally exhausted by the busy lifestyle, all a man needs is a getaway where he can escape to a serene place rich with natural beauty , there can be no other place other than a hill station for one to find a calm and soothing environment where he/she can become one with nature and find some peace. We have prepared a list of 15 hill stations suitable for a quick getaway from the concrete jungle to a natural one.

  24. Lately I've been in a Mardi Gras frame of mind. My last couple of sets of ATCs have been purple, green and gold. Also I did some shaving cream backgrounds in Victorian colors.

  25. Great card Holley, my favourite colour has to be blue don't think there is a colour I don't like other than the muddy brown you sometimes get when over colouring with inks.

  26. I pretty much like all colors except brights. It really depends on what the color will be used on. But if I really had to narrow it down I would have to say deep reds like burgundy and also black and white.

    ReplyDelete
  27. So pleased that things are more settled for you medically Holley. Here's to a bright future and talking of bright. I like bright shades, you may have noticed. Don't particularly have a favourite colour. She is a very sassy lady, lovely colour and detail.

  32. My favourite colour is blue and I absolutely hate purple

    ReplyDelete
  33. A fantastic card Holley and a super gorgeous image. I love the lace and buttons.
    My all time favourite colour is turquoise and I tend to love pastels more than bright colours. It was interesting reading your piece about epilepsy. I worked for many years as a carer and many of my clients suffered from epilepsy - and I do mean suffered. None of those I met ever qualified for surgery and they were so severely affected that they required full time care. I'm glad that you were able to be helped x

  34. Great card very sexy too.I like green,turquoise,brown,but all colors are beautiful when they are harmony.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm always interested to read facts about Epilepsy. I was lucky to be controlled on my first med but it also had serious weight gain within a few months. My youngest son was also controlled with his first, but his weight gain was awful too. He had stretchmarks like crazy, but we were thankful the seizures were gone. My older son wasn't so lucky. His first medication did not work, and they had to add a second one. Epilepsy medicine is so expensive, and unfortunately insurances want to put you on generics, and they just don't work for everyone, like a generic antibiotic would. Guess I better get on with your question huh? lol fave color this year is purple, least favorite is yellow.

  36. Hi Holley, a really hot sexy card, your hubby should love it. My favourite colour is apple green. it was the colour of my school uniform and I always felt so special in it. but the colour of my card depends on the colour of my topper.

  41. Wonderful, sassy, sexy card! The lace sets it of beautifully. Great coloring as always. My brother has epilepsy, which thankfully has been controlled with medication. He is now 60. My favorite color is purple and if I had to pick a least favorite, it would be brown.

    ReplyDelete
  42. This card is HOT! Plus I love the lace. I love blue tones, but I don't use they very often on cards except for winter snow. I'm not sure why. I don't like neons, but all other colors work for me. Interesting info about epilepsy. Thanks for educating those of us who aren't famililar with it.

  48. I like most colors. But it really depends on what I'm using it for. For cards I like deep blues and deep reds. But I have been trying to expand from my usual black and white. Actually used yellow the other day! lol

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm not so much into A favorite color as I am into favorite color combinations. That said, I do love BLUE, any shade, depending on what it's coupled with. I love other combos like pink/lime green, aqua/red, black/almost any color!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Thank you for sharing info on epilepsy as well as inspiring us with your creative projects! I think that many people don't realize that epilepsy is often not controlled with medication and are not aware of the surgical option. So glad that it worked for you! My favorite color all year round is deep red but I also love blues!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh, and my least favorite color to use is pink! There are so many shades of pink and I can never get my papers, ink and embellishments to coordinate!
