Pretty Roses

Gosh, it is so nice to be missed.  I have been real busy working on designing cards for two new Heartfelt Creation releases that will to be posted while I am away, finishing up a workshop project for Joan, working with some new Impression Obsession dies and stamps from Joan's Gardens, and a project to take out to Joan's next week and haven't posted for a few days.  I have received some emails wanting to know where I am, then today I received this email "It is 3 days that I did not received any mails with your beautiful work. It is the highlite in the morning. Please send some mails my dear.  Pat"   I thought I better take a break and make a card for you today.  

I used the flowers I made when I was teaching Pat how to make them last Saturday.  I used the Marianne (DS0907) embossing folder on the top of the card. A piece of pink card stock was attached to the back so the die cut areas would show up.  The bottom panel was embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I layered the Marianne Design embossed panel over the Swiss Dots embossed panel. The die cut Cheery Lynn "Border Carnivale" lace was attached across the bottom edge of the Marianne Design embossed panel.   The roses were made with the Spellbinders "Spiral Blossom One" and "Bitty Blossoms" dies.   Behind the roses I cut apart the  Cheery Lynn "Victorian Romance Flourish", the Cheery Lynn "Tropical Flourish" and a Cheery Lynn green "Tropical Leaf".  I had the two pearl/tulle embellishments in my "stash".   A couple Kaiser Craft pearls were added to complete the card.  I love how fast a card can go together when you already have the flowers made in advance. 

One more week and I will be leaving to go out to Joan's Gardens.  She has planned a get together for anyone that wants to come visit while I am there.  This morning I was working on a little project I plan to take out for everyone to work on that day.  If you would like to attend, please be sure to let Joan know so we  have enough projects for everyone.  I'm looking forward to visiting with all of you attending.

All the products I used to create this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.

I have ordered so much from Joan's Garden and others because of your cards, and
when a pink and white card comes along, I just drool. I love pink and white.

I cannot attend the time you are spending with Joan due to distance but would love
to if I lived nearby.

Would love instructions on the flowers that you taught your friend and shown in
tonight's email.

A happy person when looking at your cards.
