"Roses again"

Hi there Blog friends hope you have had a good day.
Thank you for popping into to my wee corner of Blogland.  I really like when you leave a comment that way I can link back to see what you have been up to.

Well!! what a day, another totally different to what I had planned.  No school for the boys today because of the snow.  Mummy had an appointment that had been arranged so that she would be there and back while the boys were in school and I was to go with her.    So guess what .....yep!  the boys were here and had to fed yet again.  Definitely a trip to the shops tomorrow.   The sun came out for a while this afternoon and the snow did thaw a bit, but is now snowing once again.  I also have John who is needing a little TLC after a fall.  He has really bad knees and of course that`s what he hurt, plus he managed to smash up the thumb on his right hand and he is right handed.  No wonder I have a headache now.

Today`s card is one that I started ages ago, it was lying with a bundle of bits.
I discovered it the other day when I was trying to clear away the bundle.
Sorry it is not a great picture but I don`t have time to re photograph it.

Base card 4 x 6 approx
Teal card that I stitched round and attached the floral paper.
A small Die from SB Grand Scallop Circles Set to cut the pink card
SB Stately Circles to cut the patterned circle (it looks plain) 
American Seam Binding for the crushed bow plus a pearl from my stash
Roses made from the patterned paper plus another pattern from the Bit Box
Leaves a Crealie Die

That`s it for today
Better go and see if John needs anything

Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
