A little of this and a little of that.

17 August 2011


Every Spring when I visit our local nursery I spend a good amount of time in the greenhouse with the roses, the fragrance is just wonderful and I can't get enough of it. Each Spring, for the past six or seven years, I would bring home at least two rose bushes and plant them in our backyard. One would think with as many that I've purchased I would have the most excellent rose garden... I don't and it's so frustrating. I currently have two planted and those two look like twigs sticking out of the ground, no greenery whatsoever... ugh!

I'm staying positive and I'm determined to have roses in my backyard, one year I'll get it right, until then I have to settle for rubber stamps with rose images!

Everything is Coming Up Roses

For this card I used the image Everything is Coming Up Roses and I think I finally found the perfect rose color, Henna (Prismacolor Pencils). I added Diamond Stickles to the rose bud to give the card that little extra touch since I added no other embellishments.

Thanks for visiting ~ Jovi

  1. love that deep red rose Jovi!Pretty!

  2. Beautiful card. Your art is always so pleasing to see. In regard to roses - I have found that they are very forgiving but they do take care in order to grow properly (mine suffer). It may be your soil ph - have you ever tested it?

  3. So cute! I've been back to trying to stamp again but still haven't posted anything to my blog. Posting it all over at SCS :-)

  4. Awww... that is so sweet. Gorgeous. :)
