Beautiful Butterflies

I have changed my background and although I like the pale pink
 it doesn't go with my ROSE.
Some of you have mentioned my rose, a photo I am very proud of.
Several years ago when I bought my first digital camera i went out into the garden
one January in the early morning and  spotted it. rushed in got the camera and took the photo.
The day turned out to be a very hot one and by evening
that rose was opened out with petals falling.
The bud beside it had just shrivelled up but I have a lasting reminder.

Today I am using a lovely new embossing folder from Darice.
It embosses so clearly and just exactly the right size.
this is the inside of the card so you can see just how perfect it is.

On the outside I have chalked around the dotted circles
and added some of my lovely butterflies.
Have set Tilda looking out of a circular window
watching the display.
Haven't used this pinky mauve for a long time I wonder why.

A touch of Blue

I don't know about a touch of blue there is quite a lot of blue there.
This has been made a few days now and I felt sure a challenge would come along that
it was right for.
Just adore this Tilda she is so cute.
I used my new MS punch again and managed to get a border with it  on the strip of card
under the lace.

Had just enough of the blue card for card itself and the matt so the leaves and the matt for the greeting are a slightly paler blue.
I bet you would never have guessed if I hadn't told you.
Distressed with Faded Jeans and coloured with my copics
Then I covered Tilda's hair and the holly with spica.
The rhinestones were coloured with copics too.

Had another play with the new tools on Picasa
and put a greenish hue around Tilda.

Sunshine and roses

I found this beatiful paper with such glorious roses on it, it was half of a 12 x12 sheet
Must have used the other half in class as there are about
6 pieces of it so expect to see it again.

Just love the way those circles really show the roses off.
Now who has been a clever girl then?
Found some new gadgets in Picasa and had a play with them in the next picture.
I distressed everything with Wild Honey for the sunshine.
Coloured with my copics and added smooch glitz to the roses.
I followed the sketch from Gem of a challenge

Tilda in her garden

I have just been working in the garden but I am no gardener.
DH loved his garden and used to keep us in veg all the year round
but alas is now unable to look after it and I must do what I can.
I don't mind admitting that our garden is nothing like as tidy as Tilda's.

The colours on this card have not reproduced very true unfortunately.
In fact nothing I have done this week has worked out most now reside in the bin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hate wasting card and paper too and will salvage what I can.
The centre of the flower is a barely pink pearl and the tiny pearls are pale pink.
What a job I had getting them on too the little devils just wouldn't go where I wanted them.
I used the spica pen on tilda's hair, some stickles on the roses and dimension on her shoes.

Am entering this in:

Mid week Magnolia - Open  {just made it}
