"Single Rose"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who pops by to see what is going on in my world.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on Roberts card.  I showed him some of them while he was here yesterday.  He came in with his mum and dad, he was full of the joys.  His team had won their Football Match.  He is the Goalie, had saved 3 shots but did let a Penalty in.  With his win at Football and all your comments he was a very Happy Chappie.
Quick Post today this is house cleaning\bed changing day here, off to get on with it.  In the afternoon I am going food shopping.  The forecast is not too good for the rest of the week in this part of Scotland.   Stocking up just in case!!!!
Here is my offering for today:-

Card made from left over PMD Hammered card approx 4 x 4
Burgundy card 
StampinUp Stippled Blossom Stamp Set
Adirondack Inks

I said it the other day, I am NOT a Stamper but boy! anyone can use these stamps and get results.
There are NO pens, pencils or even a dab of paint used to create this little card.
I have made 6 cards, all different colours of Roses and different designs.  Some have dinkie little greetings on the them.  I will make a box for them and give them to my old lady in the village.  She always needs little cards to send to friends.

That`s it for today, hope you all have a wonderful day
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

  8. Hi Patricia
    "WOW" what a Truly Awesome Card I Love The Rose.
    You've made a Beautiful Card and it's so kind of you to share them with an old lady she'll be over the moon with such Stunning Cards, do you have to place an order for the Stamp, or can you purchase at shows etc.
    I Love to Stamp and Colour I find it very therapeutic I went to classes at Lili Of The Valley for Colouring and using my Copis, that is when Bev Rochester and Jackie Dennis Worked for them, they were brilliant I'm No where near there standard but I keep trying.
    Patricia Take Great Care
    Love and Hugs

  24. Hi Patricia,
    I have a comment for three cards! Sorry! It was the weekend and it is always busy. I loved your rose stamp coloured in yellows and today's pink one is beautiful! I know you said you didn't actually colour so I need to investigate!
    Robert's card was so good! Clever boy! I love it when children enjoy crafting - they take such pride in their work and rightly so! Was crafting with my four yesterday while Dad and Grandad watched football - or nodded off!!
    Thanks Patricia,
    Love Myra

  25. Absolutely gorgeous Patricia. Fabulous stamp.

  26. That is a brilliant stamp to use, and you aced it! It's beautiful on the watercolor texture paper. It really gave so much dimension to this pretty set, and makes a stunning card. Glad you showed Robert the nice comments. Encouragement is good for his talent, which he definitely shows. TFS & hope you folks can stay cozy & warm. Hugs

  27. Hi Patricia yes I am back and thanks to a BT broadband engineer and several cups of tea we are back online after a week of just nothing!
    Firstly I must say Robert's card is wonderful what a clever young man and no mistake well done to his teacher of craft too!
    Your rose is simply fabulous, but where oh where did you find the stamp I have looked all over the place for the set, but drawn a blank? Please do let us all know, as I am sure I am not the only one who has been searching for this particular set it really is a must have.
    Hope you got all your cleaning done yesterday, I am off to get my weekly baking done then have a congratulations card for a 16 year old who has passed his tractor driving test to make.
    Take care
    With love and hugs

    Hugs all round.

  30. Hi Patricia
    These stamps look amazing (but not cheap eh lol?) Mind you, would think anyone would get their moneys worth from them as they obviously make wonderful cards, as you are showcasing.
    Looks great on the hammered card.
    Best wishes.
