I hope you all had a good week, and enjoy the new week ahead. I had a lovely surprise last week, I found out what flavour our Grandchild is going to be. Claire had her 20week scan on Wednesday and she asked us to go over to her home for dinner, where she gave me a little bag with pink and blue tissue in it. She said take the tissue out and it will reveal your grandchild. I took the tissue out put my hand inside the bad and pulled out a pair of little ---- shoes. We are so thrilled as I know deep down Claire and Toby were hoping for a ----. ME! I would have been happy either way, but the look on their faces were amazing, and I just can't wait to meet --- now. The reveal is after the card!
After our baby reveal,I asked Jane B for permission to show her gift that she gave to me when we met earlier this month, and then finally we have the tutorial. It's a long blog this week.
Hope you like it!.

NOW OUR GRANDCHILD REVEAL
What brilliant news to receive in the same month as my birthday, so I'll never forget this memory. Not wishing life away, but we can't wait for March XX
Next is a beautiful present Jane B gave to me when we met her & her husband a couple of weeks ago. Jane is a Fantastic Artist. I was overwhelmed receiving this gift and to know that Jane had hand painted this. Isn't this stunning.
Finally The Tutorial. Stick with me people nearly finished, Anyone ready for match sticks or a coffee, or maybe something stronger. Mine is a Brandy & Babycham, Cheers! I am writing this in the evening, honest guv!
This is the finished flower but I have put another picture of a flower I made back in May, It's a more open rose with the same die, and I used the larger petals too. So it is quite versatile.
Hope this tutorial helps. Next time I thought I would make the Cheery Lyn Design- Gardenia strip or Sue Wilson's Classic Rose. I hope you're up for that, if not, I'll try something else. Please say!
I hope you managed to stick with me today. It's been quite an epic blog this week.
Thank you all.X
Same time, same place next week
Big Hugs :-)
