Good evening folks and welcome to the first day of samples for our December release - I have pinched Anya's card for my blog post this evening - Isn't it pretty? I'm a sucker for roses, but they have to be the old fashioned varieties. My wee mum used to grow roses and she always had the most beautiful cabbage roses, peony roses and dog roses, not so many of the tea rose varieties, and so these are the types that I am naturally drawn to. My mum would have been 70 this past Sunday and so this set is tugging at my heartstrings a little today!
I've wanted a rose set for some time, and so I made up this two step stamping set to help me create old fashioned roses. Lining up these stamps is super simple, it all hinges on the centre of the rose and so long as you line up the centre, everything else falls into place, easy.
I didn't get a chance to photograph my samples today as we were celebrating the end of the AQE transfer tests in our house - my middle chick will be moving from Primary School to 'Big' school this year and she had her last exam this morning. It's been a long haul for all our P7's, they go through a lot of prep to get them ready to take the series of tests that will determine what schools they can get into and it's quite a serious business, so we had a little down time today after the exam, I will be back tomorrow with my own handy work, but hugs to Anya for letting me pinch her card!
