winter roses...


Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and managed to stay dry in all the snow, hail, rain and wind or was that just our weather lol...we seemed to do loads of running about yesterday but when we finally settled down to eat at 6pm if you had asked what we had done all day I wouldn't have had a clue...weird eh...I'm finally getting there I think as far as the shopping etc goes but tomorrow evening is...duh duh duh...the food shop aaaaaarrrrrrgggghhhh...I'm scared and if I was rich would definitely pay someone to do it for me...or of course one of you lovely crafter's could volunteer lol...ok I will have to sit down this morning and make my list out so at least I wont need to make more than one trip...wish me luck I will need it...right now onto my card for today...is it ok to use roses for a Christmas card do you reckon?...well its too late I have...the beautiful stamp is brand new and from Bildmalarna and is called Alva Frost, isn't she stunning...I coloured her with my distress inks (don't you love her pink hair) and of course I used more of the Stickles Glitter Glue - Star Dust to glitter her...the amazingly beautiful papers are from the Kaisercraft - Lady Rose 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad and I finished with a ruffled ribbon from my stash and a few scattered pearls from the Mixed Bag 3mm Flat backed Pearls and Mixed Bag 5mm Flat backed Pearls...everything except the green ribbon is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fab sketch is from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge and I'm also entering it for the Inkspirational Challenge and Sister Act Card Challenge too...right I'm off to make my list, check it twice, sorry I couldn't resist lol...whatever your up to today I hope you have a brilliant warm one
