Roses grow on you

A very warm welcome to all who visit my blog today on this very wet & windy afternoon. I got absolutely drenched and blown to pieces when I came out of the wholesalers today, especially when I got caught in a heaviest downpour while loading the car, but I consider my self lucky at least we don't have the awful white stuff, it makes for a pretty picture but not much fun when you have to go out in it. So stay safe and warm.

Products Used:-

8X8 Black card
CE Foundation Raspberry pearl card
CE White Foundation card
Sue Wilson- New York Collection Corner Border & Tag dies
Sue Wilson- The Scandinavian Collection Copenhagen
Sue Wilson- Classic Rose dies
Butterflies from my butterfly box
Tim Holtz- Distress Ink- to colour the flowers,  and a tiny paint brush to the veins on the petals

I hope you like this one.

Be back soon! Take Care

 It's now 7.30pm ish, and just had to add this.  well I'm blessed, after saying we're lucky not to have the white stuff we have just had a very light covering. That'll learn me.


  1. Wow, wow, wow. Tina. This is stunning. What a speacial gift in the form of this card. Not good that you are getting the White stuff. We are lucky so far, only got a very light dusting. Oh well by to the cutting stripkets. Hazel xx

  4. Hi Tina,
    It really is a Wow card! Totally agree. Your pink roses are just gorgeous and I love that shade of pink card - it's lovely! I love the whole card made complete by your lovely butterflies! Definitely a Tina card.
    Thank you,
    Love Myra xx

  5. Hi Tina. This is definately a WOW card !! It is absolutely beautiful !! I love the combination of dies you have used for your sentiment. They look great together. The Roses are gorgeous and I love the butterflies to. Sue Wilsons New York Border die is one of my favourite dies to use at the moment. I love Easel cards to. Thank you for sharing such a pretty card Tina. You are very clever. Lots of love from Tres x x x

  6. HI Tina, this is not just a card, it's a gift. It's so pretty.
    Your roses always look so real.
    You are lucky to only have a dusting of snow, we had a heavy snow fall a few days ago and now it has frozen into hard ridges. I hate walking the dog when I'm having to watch my feet all the time.. Can I fast forward to spring, please.

  9. WOW OH WOW. the beauty of this really takes your breath away, a true wonder of Tina card. This reminds me of a summers evening in the garden after a lovely warm day, can't you just smell those roses I can almost see my little hedgehog that comes visiting along by our roses nosing through the fallen rose petals. Oh sorry Tina I am dreaming of summer coming, but those little sparkles you have added just reminds me of the dew that comes in summer too. Your roses look so life like I can almost smell their perfume really I can, they are so like a perfect David Austin rose.
    Well done, you really have done it again with another absolutely fabulous creation as only you can in a style that you have made your very own.
    Take care in the icy weather
    With love

    I'm so sorry I am putting this message up to say a big thank you for all your lovely words. I would send you all a personal one, but I am going back to bed. I've had a blinder of a migraine today, it started early hours but had continued all day. you have all said some wonderful things, and I really do appreciate your comments. I think we all do, that's what spurs us on to make more. I will visit other blogs tomorrow, and will answer your email Margret. I did leave a little message on Sandra's blog for Myra as she showed her card today as a guest designer card. That's as much as I have done today.

    So Night night, God bless
