roses and pearls galore...

Good morning everyone, how you all doing...I still haven't managed to do any blog commenting, I'm hanging my head in shame I'm such a bad blogger but when I'm feeling a bit better I will catch up with you all I promise...I got fed up with sitting in yesterday so got ready to go out walked to the bus stop but by the time I got there I was shattered and came back home for a sleep instead lol...oh well I got some fresh air anyway but I bet the neighbours thought I was nuts though...you know I do hop by blogs every night but just a flying visit but don't always leave a comment but I do like a little nosy at what you have been doing as they always inspire me...right now onto my card for today which is for our new Challenge at Crafts and Me Challenge this week...this time is our wonderful Rose's choice and she chose the theme of Roses and Pearls...fab theme isn't it...I chose to use the beautiful Rest on the Horizon from Crafts and Me for my card and coloured her with distress inks...now how stunning is this Graphic45 paper, I love it...its from the Tropical Travelogue collection and is called Hibiscus Heaven...I finished with some beautiful Wild Orchid roses, a beautiful satin ribbon and bow and a scattering of pearls...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering it for the Wild Orchid Challenge and Cute Card Thursday challenge too...I haven't a clue what I'm up to today well besides for lying around feeling sorry for myself again lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one
