We're down a couple of Poobahs this week - the East Coast of the U.S. is making the acquaintance of Hurricane Irene and we already don't like her.
Please keep all of the people in the path of this storm in your thoughts and prayers!
Yep, this Irene is certainly putting a real damper on fun right now
But let's try and think ROSE-Y thoughts
Love all around us
There? Isn't THAT better?
This week our theme is to create with
Simple as that!
Rosemary here and I made a couple of projects for this challenge. First up is a wreath of roses. I tried making only white roses using pearly paper and then added glitter - the photo doesn't show it but it's rather elegant and glittery in real life - I might swap out the ribbon for different occasions. (there's about 40 large roses and I was able to make them in a couple of hours)
When I rummaged about in my stash I realised I had a distinct lack of roses apart from a set of very pretty rose stamps which I had won and that I thought I would never use, but have now used them twice so that just goes to show what a dud my crystal ball is. What no psychic powers? Nope.
Materials used listed on my blog.
Electra here - Everyone loves flowers right? If I met someone who didn't like flowers, I would not go to his/her house for soup and sandwiches. Not a chance. Do you ever watch those TV shows where brides compete to have the most gorgeous wedding decor? Well, sometimes there is a bride who doesn't like flowers. She'll use peanuts, or motorcycle parts, or, well, you get the picture. I wouldn't go to her wedding. Not that I was invited. But I wouldn't. So there.
No flowers were hurt in the making of this LO.
Deena here - This is my roses and rosette card done with as many as I felt I could stick on one poor little card base ;) I made the spiral roses and just love that rosebud ribbon...can't get enough of that stuff...I used some mists and some stickles to bling it up a little...not sure if you can tell from the pics though?
I made this card (and thought I posted it yesterday, but it disappeared for some reason unbeknownst to me)... so here it is again. I made the 3 roses, 2 with ribbon and tinfoil, and 1 out of paper. The wedding cards are Wordles that I made out of Corinthians verses on love. The stamp I used was A Muse.
