Smell the roses

Is a nice thing to do. Our white English Rose is in full bloom and it is magnificent and brighten up my days. Every morning I’m afraid that the deer has been visiting during night, but it seems like it will be left alone for once. Yay!

The rose was my inspiration for the card I made this afternoon. I’ve been wiped out in a bad migraine since yesterday, and it let go a couple of hours ago. Still too dizzy to work, but well enough to cut some paper. The problems with straight lines are due to heavy medication. LOL!  Today’s challenge at 365 cards  was using a hexagon.

Thinking of you-1Thinking of you detaljRecipe: Papers; Bazzill, Daisy Bucket.  Stamps; Firecracker Designs by Pamela (butterfly), Forma (rose), Artistic Outpost (sentiment). Ink; Versa Fine, Distress ink.

I’m in love with my new butterfly from FCD! I find myself using it (or the dragonfly) on everything nowadays. Might need to let it rest for a day or two. LOL: The design is based on the sketch of the week over at Friday Sketchers.

I’m off feeding my son and hit the bed again. Have a lovely evening!

Very pretty Tesa. I reconized the sketch. LOL It almost looks like a very fancy wall plate. It looks like you layered the rose. I like that technique.

This is gorgeous Tesa. I sure do hope that you will feel better tomorrow morning ... a migraine is such a nuisance and painful.

I can't believe you pulled off this thing of utter beauty with a migraine. Lady, you amaze me!!

I love this card. The colours (and colouring) are gorgeous, the dimension is fantastic, and you've finished it beautifully.

I hope you're feeling better!
