With Love

Hello ...

We have glorious sunshine this morning even though it's freezing cold ... The sun makes me feel a lot more cheerful and DH has taken the opportunity to go golfing

I have another card to share using up scraps ... 


The rose was a free stamp that came with a magazine and I thought I'd try painting it with Gelatos and I used my new Wink of Stella pen but try as I might I can't get a photo of the sparkle


I'm enjoying using white embossing for my sentiments lately too ... The leaves are cut from a die set from Clearly Besotted ... A terrific company ... the service is so quick! I have the stamps to go with the dies but I used Distress stains on these and some gold ink to add dots ... That's often how my rose leaves look in the garden


I hope you are having a good week ... Be safe

Gorgeous card Ros! I kinda made this year's crafting resolution to use up my scraps which I have plenty of...I'll let you know at the end of this year how I did :)

I think you are setting the new (?) trend: atamping sentiments in white! It looks great on the striped paper.

You are having too much fun with that splattering. hee hee The Wink of Stella is almost impossible to capture and even when you do you are not getting the full effect. Love that stuff. :-) Beautiful card.
