Me and My Roses

Hello Blog friends, thank you for calling by today.
I am sorry if I have not managed to get round to commenting on your Blog today.  
I have to say although I enjoyed "working " today I am rather tired.  We were extremely busy from 12.30pm till 3pm, never stopped.  All tables taken, there are 9, OK 6 of them are for 2 people even so it was all go.  I only made one Boo! Boo! forgot a couples order for Tea.  I served their main course, went off to do something and forgot about their pot of Tea.  Other than that all went well, no grumpy customers so that was fine, don`t like grumpy people.........................

Today`s card I made  the other day when I had my sewing machine out.

Base card 5 x 7 approx Centura pearl
Paper from a Tilda Paper Stack 
SB Labels Twenty Die
Memory Box Frame Die
Roses are a Die Cut image that is included in the Paper Stack
Some Pearls from my Stash

That`s it for today off to put my PJs on, have a cuppa then bed for me.
Thank you for popping in I really appreciate it
 Till next time

  10. Hi Patricia, not sure if you will get this as not blogged before. Love all your cards, this one no exception. Have not used Tilda papers yet. Do you use these when making the roses using SB Blossoms 5? I have only made flowers using Felt or Vellum as not sure which are the best papers to use. Gemma C

  15. Hi Patricia, Have been trying to join your site so I can leave comments on your Blog. Think I have cracked it...I hope!. Love all your cards. Not used the Tilda papers yet. Are these what you use to make your roses using the SB Blossom 5 die? I don't know which are the best papers to use to make flowers as I have only used felt and vellum. Any advice? Have a lovely day. The sun is out now but freezing start here in Essex. Gemma C xx
