Bouquet of Roses




I have been missing form the action of late.  My Mom (she’s 87 yrs old) was rushed via ambulance to the hospital from her doctor’s office on Monday before Thanksgiving.  Testing, admission more test showed that she had 3 completely blocked arteries from her heart and one very large (did I say it looked like an egg) blockage in the posterior of her heart.  Surgery at her age, with this amount of blockage and the fact that she is very tiny would make things all the more difficult.  She eventually had surgery and spent only one day in the Critical Care Unit and moved to the Progressive Cardiac Care unit for all of one day.  Very serious complications sent her back to Critical Care.  She has improved and today they moved her back to the Progressive Cardiac Care unit.  Now she is planning her escape!!!

 With all that said you know I had to make her a card and so I used the absolutely stunning” I Love Roses” set Marcella has created for our release this month. These images are a joy to color.  These were done with only one image from the set.  I made multiple masks using my Eclipse tape, and then stamping repeatedly until I got the look I wanted.  The leaves are also images from the set…..again I used my mask over the rose.  I colored them using my SU reinkers and aqua painter from Flourishes.  A ribbon and sentiment from Many Sentiments and Viola!
