Well, here I am again after a very long absence, am trying to see if I can get back into blogging again. It sure has been a long time! I had missed the deadlines for the Roses Challenges in the last couple of months. May was Betty for Purple challenge- June was Patti Summer Theme - July was Mary Anne Patriotic Colors, August is Sue's Pic Inspiration.
Well will try to post one for each month that I have missed for these months. I have made 4 cards in the past couple of weeks and have forgotten to take a picture. Well today I said no way can I forget, had post its everywhere to make sure lol.
Well here it is Patti's Challenge Some for Summer - June.
AND since flowers and butterflies are my alltime faves, this is what I put together. Thanks Olga-Rose for the Inspiration of the type of card to make,
Have a great day, and hugs to all my Beautiful Roses!

While I sent hubby on his way to Cuba for a week of golf with his sil, a surprise gift
for him for his 70th birthday, I decided to paint my kitchen. Well after a rotten start, dropping a third of a gallon of paint all over my dog and floor this is the result. I wanted something bright and had chosen a creamy buttery yellow, in some pics it seems darker. When I was done, found it too monotonous, so decided to add a litte PUNCH! Well I was bold and went with red, and figured if Hubby didn't like it when he got back, well too bad, cause there was no way I was painting again. The worse room in a house to paint and I have to choose it. Well he came home and was thoroughly surprised, but said he loved it. OH WHAT A RELIEF!!!!
Have a great week my Friends, have missed you all, promise to be a little more present!
Hugs to all!
I have been very busy with all sorts of things and one of them are these. I have been wanting to take a course in decorative painting for years and for whatever reasons have not been able to. But 2 months ago at my teeny craft store 3 min away, a sign was posted that lessons were being given on Tue. evenings for beginners. Well I went to see Monic, and told her I couldn't draw for beans, did she think I could do it. She said of course you can, it is all about techniques and you have patterns you trace, (ugghhhh I thought I can't even trace properly, hehheheheheh) Well decided to give it a try and these are the results. From bottom up, starts with the first one, and so on. You wanna know something, I had homework to do!!!! I haven't had homework in years!!! Well after erasing I don't know how many traced lines these are what I ended up with. Was a great course and lots of fun to learn. No no no, I am not giving up cardmaking, just another avenue I wanted to try! I actually made a birthday card for stepson this week along with Roses Challenge but forgot to take a pic...I did miss my cardmaking!
Talk to ya soon!
