My roses are finally blooming! I took a picture of one that was almost opened. I love seeing that last stage when the center is still closed. It is amazing to me how many petals one rose actually has. I am still waiting for my purple roses to open...they smell absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait! I will post pictures of those when they finally decide to make an appearance. After seeing my roses, I decided to make a rose card. I used the retired "Gentler Times" from SU! for my images. I also paired it with "Floral" and "En Francais" for backgrounds. The sentiment is from "All Holidays". I tried to color the rose the same color as the one in my photo. I found this fabulous ribbon at Robert's Craft and I Love it so much because it looks like linen. It is great to work with and I love how it ties. I think it is from Offray. I added some Diamond Stickles to the flowers for a little sparkle.
I have just been hanging out today cleaning and doing laundry. You should see me as I am typing this....ummmmm, can you say scary? LOL! I thought I deserved a little stamping time, especially since I cleaned off my desk. Isn't it funny how a clean desk inspires me to make a new mess? Oh well...I had fun!!!! Thanks for fluttering by!
