everyone loves roses...


Good morning everyone are you all managing to stay warm?...it was freezing cold here last night...oooohhhhhh will the weather ever get warmer winter this year seems to have lasted forever...my poor Dad is tuckered out after all his excitement over the weekend and last few days so stayed in yesterday and the workmen are changing all the pipes along the lane that runs beside our house and garden...goodness knows how long it will take them though as they don't seem to be in much of a hurry lol...I had a call from my Doctor last evening about 6pm saying the blood tests I had came back and a few of them had some problems so hes sending me for x rays, an ultrasound, I need more blood tests too....oooohhhhh brilliant more sky high blood pressure results lol...oh well these things are sent to try us aren't they and everything will be fine in the long run well as long as my head dosent explode from all that high BP that is lol...right now onto my card for today...whenever my mojo is struggling like it has been lately I always turn to Mo's Digital Pencil for the shot of inspiration I need and this stunning Mummu's Roses is perfect to colour, isn't she just wonderful and perfect for any Mums or older woman's cards...I coloured her with distress inks and added some papers from the Bazzill Basics 6x6" Multipack - Antique Aged Papers pack I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts to add some interest to the background but for a change I left a lot just white...I think it suits her don't you?...all I used to finish was a huge wide ribbon bow...I think this is the closest I manage to CAS lol...I didn't use a sketch of course but am entering it for the Creative Creations Challenge, Through the Craftroom Door Challenge and the Creative Card Crew Challenge too...its supermarket day today and I'm glad to be getting out of the house away from the digging and machinery noise from the lane to be honest...so the supermarket seems like a good idea for a change lol...oh and of course its 'put the world to rights coffee' afternoon too while we are there, well you need a treat after food shopping don't you...whatever your up to today have a nice warm snuggle one and stay warm
