A Rose is a rose more Flower Power

If there's one punch you just HAVE TO HAVE, that's the scallop circle punch.  It has more uses than you can imagine and makes more of the neatest little things!

Ok, so it's fidley...but they're gorgious when done.  Roses from the scalloped circle punch.  Check it out!

I made a sympathy card for a friend at church using the red roses and very similar to the card above but the middle rose was quite large. I used the large scallop die and put it through my cuttlebug...I don't have a big shot yet... and I was pleasantly pleased with the way it turned out.  The other two were smaller but slightly different in size as well. My friend had placed a dozen roses at the funeral of her husband.  I chose three roses to represent the Trinity and the greatest love of all...God's love through Jesus Christ.

I hope you like this one too!


I can't believe I haven't checked in since April.  I'm ashamed of myself!!!  Working full time! UGH!!!  On the bright side, I have now changed all my wooden stamps to cling stamps and have catagorized and catalogued what I own.  Now I have to do all the dies, embossing folders and the other piddlies!

Classes are gearing up to start late September each Thursday evening and I'm sure you will be excited  to see and use the new tools and learn new techniques for card making and scrapbooking. 
I want to share some cards made prior to the summer holidays.
Here's a little treat I gave all my ladies at Valentines

Just love chocolate...I mean, who doesn't?
