Yellow Rose

Woo Hoo I have reached 200 followers thank you all very much. Right I had better sort some Candy out to celebrate.    I was going to craft this morning, then realised I had a hair appt at 10.30 and there it was chucking it down and the wind howling oh how I wanted  to cancel only trouble was I cancelled last week, so I fought my way there and the flipping umberella blow inside out and thought there goes my hair when I come out. Luckily the wind and rain had dropped a bit so made it home ok :O)) although very cold so made a cuppa sat at the computer and chose what I wanted. So no dreaded housework done today.....who cares I don`t lol.


5x5 white square card
swirls embossing folder
polka dot embossing folder
Vanilla, Yellow, Tulip Yellow, Pear Green, Green, Leaf Green
white ribbon and  gems from stash.

I mounted the swirl card onto the base card, wrapped the ribbon around the polka dot border and attached. Printed my digi out and coloured then  cut out and mounted onto card with foam pads then added the gems.

Single Rose..........

Where has the weekend gone, one blink to many I think ;O).  In between doing all the necessary stuff that us women have to do I managed to draw another image, this time as the title says one single rose then of course I had to turn it into a digi which I did last night. Today it has been washing and ironing which I hate so took a break and played in MCS and came up with a picture for my sidebar for my digis.

I would like to ask if you would be so kind to copy and paste to your  sidebar with a link back to here. Thank you.

Hello ladies I hope you  have all had a good weekend and have managed to miss the snow, we have so far but we have rain and lots of it since about 4.30 this afternoon and its still pelting down. I have been very remiss in making cards over the last week but have been busy drawing ( all Lindsay`s fault lol ) and trying to learn how to turn them into Digi`s. I was going completely down the wrong route until my friend Lindsay came to  my rescue and taught me how to do it. Lindsay you are a STAR and I thank you. Right now onto my new drawing I thought I would give Daffs a go this time.

I hope you like it and I shall be making this into a Digi soon.
