A rose by any other name... and blog hop news

Morning all

Boy I see that I have had 10,000 views on my blog
that is just fantastic.

Thank you soooooo much for coming to visit me and my
rambles. :) 

I really do welcome you to my blog, 
there are times when I think it saves me from myself
and a place to just "enter" to create something 
different, new and hopefully lovely. 

I have been using my watercolours yesterday 
and made this card. 

Even my partner Dennis said it was nice !!! 

Not a lot one can say about it - 
I have aimed for a Clean and Simple card
and hopefully this meets this. 

I did try several different papers and ended up using 
stamping card. The watercolour paper seemed to give a 
rather pale image - needs more work on that one. 

Painted in the rose with different shades of pink. 

I did use distress blue ink to colour the background.

Once cut down mounted onto 2 different blue cards onto 
a white card blank.

I hope you like it.

I would like to enter it for the following 


Have a great day and I know that I will be
spending time crafting.

When life is stressful the power of crafting
has a fantastic relaxing way for me.

Just need to mention a new blog hop that everyone can enter at

Imagine That! Creative playground

Hope to see you over on this site and I know that I will
be entering their new challenge for this month.
Good luck
