too many questions...


 Good morning everyone I hope your all well and happy and having a brilliant week...well its official poor Phil has man flu or as we women call it a head cold lol...I text him at work yesterday to see how he was and he took a couple of hours to text back with 'Im too weak to text you'...er...you just did, daft bugger that he is lol...he will be grand with some more hot lemon drinks...it seems that the summer has returned here and my rose bushes have sprung into life again, I wish they would make their minds up...now the question to cut them or not to cut them...I love having them indoors but don't want to stop it blooming...all you super talented gardeners out there should be able to tell me I think...now before I get onto my card for today a quick question for you, are these photos blurred?, I'm not sure if they are blurred or its my eyes or my rapidly ageing laptop...let me know if they look a bit blurry to you please....I have had a lot of questions for you all today haven't I...you must be thinking I only came here to see a card not take a quiz lol...btw brilliant news my Daughters friend is much better and out of intensive care thank goodness my heart sank when I first heard it, all Mothers feel for any family going through something like that don't they..ok no more waffle onto my card for today...don't you just love this sweetheart of a stamp? (oops another question), shes from Sugar Nellie and is from the Diane Duda collection of stamps...this is the stunning Peace Angel coloured with my usual distress inks...she would be just perfect for a Christmas card but I couldn't resist using this amazing paper and cutting to my hearts content from it...these papers are from the beautiful Bo Bunny Gabrielle 6x6 paper pad...I cut butterflies out and lay them over the flat ones but a little off so they I could try to make them look like they were moving, a couple more cut from another sheet from the pad and all I added was some stunning swirls from the Prima Say It In Crystals Mini Swirls - Divine set from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I didn't really use a sketch and just let the papers dictate the layout but am entering it for the C is for Challenge, Crafty Cardmakers Challenge and the Lady Anne's Challenges too...I'm heading to my craft room this morning armed with bin bags and cleaning stuff its desperately in need of a good clean and there's no more putting it off as the floor is covered in double sided tape backing strips...wish me luck I will need it lol...whatever your up to today wherever you are I hope its a lovely warm sunny day for you

Gorgeous card Mina. Glad to hear your daughters friend is improving. As for cutting your roses...can't help you there..I love having flowers in the house but I'm always at odds as to whether to cut the ones in the garden or not. Big help I am! Hope Phil is over his man flu soon.
Hugs, Renee

Gorgeous card Mina. Super image and love how you have used the butterflies off the paper as embellishments.
I can't help with the roses I am afraid. And your photos don't look blurry to me, they look great.
Hope hubby feels better soon.
