Scrap Card 3

Hello!
How are you all?

I'm pleased to say that my rash is improving since my visit to hospital last week ... I have a biopsy scheduled for the beginning of March ... Until then I have more lotions and potions to use... My morning has to be a regime of applying creams and waiting time till the next thing is applied. I have a special shampoo too which I hate! I have to apply it every day and wait 15 mins before rinsing and the static it causes is ridiculous! I keep telling myself in a few months time this will all be a distant memory... sigh

Anyhoo, I have another card to share that I made using up my scraps and a few little black pearls


The little bird and flower were left overs as was the paper


I added some little black pearls to the Chloe stem to make it a bit more special because these Thank You cards are going out to special blog friends ...


Right now I'm busy working on Valentine cards for my Thursday group ... they love card making but coming up with something that will keep them going for 90 minutes and for 20+ people is a lot of work .. It means coming up with cards that have quite a few things to 'stick' on and then cutting out all those bits for them ...

My dining area is almost finished and I will share some photo when I can ... 

Have a lovely day ... Thanks for popping in - I'll be back tomorrow

Glad to hear you're feeling a bit better, even if it's just a bit. Gorgeous card Ros, I just love the black pearls on the ends of your Chloe, really gives the flower a 3d look! hugs :)

I hope you feel better soon Ros! What a gorgeous and striking card you created there! Love the black pearls, such a nice touch! Have a wonderful day!

Well I do hope all the creams do help. That doesn't sound like fun at all. Your card looks wonderful my friend.

I am looking forward to seeing the photos of your Dinning area.

Hugs~

Lovely scrap card, Ros, Sorry about your itching and all the necessary things you have to do.It is 72 out this morning and climbing...up to 79 today or so they say. No I don't think Spring is here, but I will take any warm days that are sent my way! Have a blessed Monday!

Kara Lynne said...

I love the effect you get with those black pearls! Great background for it too. Sorry to hear all that's going on, I hope it's over soon!

Good to hear that your skin condition has improved!
Beautiful and sweet creation!

LOVE the black with these fun stripes, Ros! The black pearls add such FAB dimension!

Maria said...

So pretty! Love all the color and the touch of black with the bird and flower!

Lisette Baker said...

Love this card Ros - the silhouettes against those fabulous stripes look brilliant. The addition of the pearls is just perfect. Hope you find some relief soon x

Diane said...

I have to say if I hadn't read your post (which I always do) I would of thought that you had "painted" on those stripes!! Another simply~beautiful card!! And glad to hear your rash is going away!!

Mona Pendleton said...

Stunning card Ros! Love how the bold black die cuts pop!

Stella said...

Oh I am so happy to hear that there is some improvement! It takes a long way and it will go by. But it's hard when you are in the middle of it. .
Love the contrast of your card; that flower die looks amazing with the black pearls!
XXXXX

I'm glad to hear you are having some slight improvement, Ros! The regime you are going through is horrible, so I hope it all goes away soon!

It certainly has not interfered with your brilliant design talent! This card (mind you, just made from scraps!) is utterly gorgeous!! I love everything about it!! Which, BTW, is how I feel about the beautiful thank you card I received from you! It's such a thrill to have one of your Ros originals!! Thank you!

I'm off to a workshop myself tomorrow. The most we've ever had is seven. I can't even imagine having 20+ in the group, let alone prepping for it and then holding the workshop! No wonder you have a rash!! Just kidding, but seriously, I'm sure it will be wonderful and I wish I lived nearby so I could be there!! Hugs, Darnell

Greta said...

Striking & beautiful--love this card, Ros! So glad you're getting some relief finally & hope it's gone before long!

Barbara said...

So good to hear you're better - and yes, all this will soon be a distant memory, always focus on the positive things! Your card is a winner, too... and the more I see of it, the more I like that THANKS die.

Chriss Blagrave said...

Oh dear, that regime does sound tedious. I really do hope that it will all come to an end very soon and you will feel 100% ! I am with Darnell, wish That I lived nearby to help you out...
I am always amazed with what you can do with your "scraps" , always a terrific result!

Manuela said...

cool card, with the contrast!
good to hear that it is a little better, hope you are well very soon!

maria f. said...

Oh dear - sorry to hear about your suffering. This card totally caught my eye - I love that PP (thanks for reminding me that I have it and probably never used it properly) and it looks fabulous paired with black and all that white. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Tracy said...

The black adds such a wonderful contrast. Gives the feel of shadowed silhouettes against the colorful panel. Lovely!
