Another Guy Card and Thank Goodness for Bloggers

Hello there...

I enjoyed a wonderful day with Darnell and her friends Shirley, Monicka and Em... It was just what I needed considering that the night before I received what I can only describe as a vile email banning me from my friend Eileen's funeral.....sigh
I know... There are some very nasty people in this world so thank goodness for all you sweet and lovely bloggers, ours is a wonderful community.

Now before I shoot off to spend another day with Darnell and meet even more crafty bloggers (great huh?)  I have a card to share that I made for my husbands friend who celebrates his birthday soon.


Just playing with inks again but you know I'm pretty addicted to them 


...And they can bring a card together so quickly


When I create I can just let go of all the awful stuff out there and have fun

I'll share some photos in the week and let you know how today goes

Take care and have a beautiful day

I think I shall start calling you the Inking Queen. :-) Love the detail you got for the grassy hillside. Great work Ros.
Don't you worry about that nasty email. You were there for your friend when it counted. Hugs!

What a fabulous card and for a guy. Those are always hard for me, but you have done a wonderful job. Love the CAS approach and the scene you created.

You know, those people do not have joy & real success in their lives, I believe, & they will be held accountable. So very sad. Your friend was lucky beyond words to have had your love & care, Ros--you made a difference. So, so glad you had fun with Darnell & I know the event will be so much fun--enjoy, my friend! Sending virtual hugs--you're in my thoughts!

Greta said...

Oh my word--I forgot to say that I absolutely love this card & may need to CASE it!

Whhaaaat??? Why would they do that when it was you who spent all that time with her? Truly vile and I'm sorry! I'm glad you have the diversion of stamping and stamping friends to brighten your spirit. This is one of your most beautiful cards yet! The hillside is amazing behind that fabulously crisp black. Love that stamp! Sweet green on the sentiment. WOW!

I am glad you get some joy from meeting bloggers.
What kind of evil soul is banning you from going to Eileen's funeral, I just can't imagine how nasty people can be, I shouldn't be surprise though, I myself have experienced some difficult situation at the Singapore club years ago. sigh..... people!
What a lovely card and you are a master of inking!

Barbara said...

Such a lovely card! I can't believe you were banned from Eileen's funeral, though... as if it were about other people when in fact it's about Eileen. Well, when it comes down to it you don't have to be there for her to know how much you loved her.

Stella said...

Your talent is amazing and this card is another gem. Fab design and I love how you used ink to create these "hills"( I call them hills) Sweetie I hope you had a fab day; sending a big hug!

Oh Ros I am so upset for you...So very sorry about the awful email you where sent. A saying we have in Scotland is...What goes around comes around and it will for those nasty people x They should be thanking you x Your card today is a stunner! Wow colours and blending and love the black silhouette against it. The strip on the left works perfectly with the birthday die cut hanging off it...You clever clever creative lady x I am so jealous of all the blog posts in blog world about visits with Darnell...maybe next time xxx Thinking of you x

Maria said...

Oh, my! So sorry to hear you being banned from Eileen's funeral. Evil people are sad and angry people. But, do not let them take you down. You know in your heart you did the right thing. And, your dear friend, Eileen was very blessed for your loving care! Your masculine birthday card is just so beautiful with the inking! Have tons of fun visiting with Darnell and friends! You deserve it...hugs!:-)

Beautiful card, Ros! Will be pinning this :). It was lovely to meet you and your wonderful tour-guide hubby Ian on Tuesday, and again with Pat on Wednesday (Hi Pat!).
So sad about the email, but you have the comfort of knowing that you did your best for your friend.

Kathy Krug said...

Beautiful inked hills. You created a relaxing beautiful scene.

Davi said...

Ros super job on the background you made such lovley rolling hills, a beautiful card! Glad you were able to spend time with Darnell! Im SO SO sorry that Eileens family treated you in such a wicked way!! What counts is that you were the one there for her to the end Ros. Just think of them as chaff the wind will blow away!

Sylvia said...

Beautiful card, Ros, and the best way to bury sadness is to craft and surround yourself with good things!

Lisette Baker said...

Getting lost in crafting is one of my favourite ways to switch off. Sadly, I seem to be getting little time to get to do it at the moment :( Great card, love how you have inked the green, very effective.

Diane said...

Wow...I cannot believe your friends family..it amazes me that people can be so cruel! I am happy for you that you were able to spend time with blogging friends and to meet up with so many ladies..it had to have been such a fun day! Love the pretty card and your inking is marvelous!! Oh, BTW, Dar is coming to stay with me this coming Wed thru the following Monday (guess I had better get her room cleaned up..lol) and boy o boy do I have the plans for us (going to wear her right out..Hah)!!

Sue Lelli said...

OMGosh that email was horrible! So sorry for the mean people of this world. At least you were able to be with nice people to kind of temper that. Wow! LOVE your absolutely STUNNING card my friend!

RitaR said...

I just found your lovely blog via Darnell's tour of England posts! Just had to tell you how much I love the masculine birthday card you created for your husband's friend. My husband's birthday is coming up on August 11th and I'm searching for inspiration for his card .... I think I've found it!!!

Jinny Newlin said...

Oooo! Love that wheat silhouette, and your hills are so dreamy! You could totally get lost in them ;). So glad you're having fun with blog friends! Enjoy!
