Howdy, and welcome. Remember I mentioned Rose Night and a tv show in a previous blog? Well here's some of the paper roses I'm trying to learn to make..on this recycled card. Which, by the way, was a computer generated card from a card program. Found this one when going through bunches of old cards as we've been decluttering. Liked the bluebirds and hmmmm....
- S/B Classic Square die for a portion of this card, which was made by a SIL for my birthday, many years ago. On the right corner dogwood motif, another section was fussy cut, so that a 2nd layer could be shaped and adhered over the base flowers.
- top fold base card was embossed with Couture Creations Fresh & Fun Collection, Petal Pleasures, then scored at the bottom edge.
- Impression Obsession sentiment stamp inked with Memento Wedding Dress Deluxe (white pigment) and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Clear EP, diecut with a S/B label die. This is another card to have available for whatever occasion is warranted. The inside sentiment will determine what it's used for.
- roses from d/p 5 petal punch - 5 layers of punches. Stamens and leaves were from a snippet of previously sprayed paper using shades of Dylusions greens & yellow. The stamen punch was McGill spiky starburst type of punch. I get discouraged when trying to make these flowers - as I see so many lovely ones on blogs that I vist. Mine never turn out so pretty, but I keep trying to get them to look better. Maybe one of these days!
Thanks for joining me this afternoon. Big Hugs & hope you're having a lovely afternoon where you are.
Edit: Since this is a scheduled post and I'm trying to catch up on some other things, I'll just say that the Fish Camp was a fun experience. Seven couples from our subdivision drove down. My #2 Bro & SIL who live down the street from us - in the same community and know all the other couples much better than we do - rode along with us. It was a pleasant drive down the interstate and then on a little state country road. The restaurant was a huge tin-like building, quite rustic, picnic type table setting. Very clean & considering it was a Saturday evening, not crowded. But lots of patrons. Everything I tried from the buffet table was most delicious. And some excellent ice tea. I think all but DH - who is trying to lose some weight per his cardiologist - waddled out. He ate heartily, but not heavily - as did the rest of us. Yep, it was fried food! But not greasy or heavy tasting, and the batters were very light on the several varieties of fish, shrimp, oysters (which I don't eat) and oh yes, fried okra. Now anyone who doesn't know what okra is, ask & I'll try to explain another Southern staple. Best fried!
