"More and More Roses"

Good Morning Blog friends, thank you for calling in today and for all the other days you have popped by and left your lovely comments.  
I am a little confused this week, now that`s not hard I can assure you!!!!  With the boys having their sleep over Sunday/Monday I am a day out.  Yesterday I kept thinking it was Tuesday, better get it right I am to meet my friend for coffee later.  A week past Tuesday after my traumatic morning in the gales I forgot to meet her.  She has forgiven me, luckily where we meet we are known, some other ladies that are often there at the same time as us invited her to join them.

I got a little carried away yesterday making roses.  I was getting my bits and pieces ready to make a couple of cards, I did intend using Wild Orchid Crafts roses I have had for ages.    I found a sheet of backing paper I had printed, a Nit Wit collection Download.  I decided to use that and make the roses myself.

Base Card was an 8 x 8 I cut it back a little bit to about 7 x 7
Pink card from stock
White card embossed with a dotty embossing folder
Another piece of white card cut using Marianne Designables Folder DS0907
I backed that with a piece of the pink card to show through
Cut a border using a Martha Stewart Punch
Leaves and the flower head are Marianne Dies
My Roses of course using Spellbinder Blossom Five Die
A few pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts

 That`s it for today
Thank you so much for visiting I really do appreciate it




  1. Morning Patricia, my where do you get all your wonderful ideas for cards. Do you think it out or throw a few bits on the table and play, that's what I do most times. I have a few ideas of what I want before I begin but by the end it is totally different. Have a good day with your friend, I bet she forgives you for the other week. Love the roses so beautiful.

    Take care.

  6. Morning Patricia, Absolutely lovely card, white on white with a splash of colour, just lovely. I love your roses, they are beautiful, I also love the embossed corner it is absolutely gorgeous. I thought I recognised the border, being Martha Stewart, lovely.
