"A Rose Again"

Good evening, a "BIG" welcome to my new followers, thank you for sharing my little corner of Blogland.  Hope you can stay a while, I love having you here.
I am posting this evening as I have two boys having a sleepover.  Robert 5 is sound asleep, Thomas 8 is watching a DVD about Steam Engines with his Grandpa.  I am rushing to get this done before I get that call "Granny can I have something eat please" OMG!!  where does that child put it all???
They came along with Daddy to stay for 1 hour this morning till he walked the dogs.  It was pouring rain at the time and he did not want them getting soaked.  We had Lunch, the rain went off and they wanted to go for a walk in the woods.  So "wellies" and sweaters on and off we all went.   We had great fun, after we managed to get Grandpa back on his feet after he fell over a tree root, OK no damage done it was up a bank so he did not really fall that far.  The boys collected loads of fir cones, Thomas wants to make a wreath for their front door for Christmas.............I have plenty time then!!!!

 No crafting again today, this is a card I did a couple of weeks ago for my Stock Box, I also made a box for in to go in.

White card cut approx to 5 x 7
White card embossed using Spellbinder M-Bossing Folder
A Border I had cut, not used and put in my Bit Box, that`s it used
Pink paper from the Bit Box it was a backing paper printed from Joanna Sheen`s Baby Love CD
Rose made using the same Pink Paper and Spellbinder Classic Circle Dies
Leaves using Spellbinder Foliage Die
Pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts used on some of the embossed flowers

That`s it for this evening
Thank you so much for popping in to visit I really do appreciate it
