To the one I Love...

Happy Weekend :) had quite a productive day and managed to get the first coat of paint on the canvas for my nanna and grandad - so just need to decide what I'm actually going to do with it, I think I'm going to order some new papers and get my rolled flower die out.

Anyways here are this year's Anniversary flowers, I'm glad I took pictures on the first day cos I think I managed to kill them but I'm not exactly sure how lol. And then we had a lovely meal at Gusto - Garlic Pizza Bread, Tiger Prawns in Creamy Tomato and Garlic Sauce, Seabass cooked with lemon and herbs and in Sea Salt with Garlic Potatoes all followed up with a Nutella and Mascaponie Calzone mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm want it all again lol.

I was abandoned yesterday cos Ian and his mate went up to Manchester to see the wrestling (yes dear lol) so I went round to Emma's so had a night of pizza and dough balls and episodes of 'Don't Tell the Bride' (Emma is getting married next year). 

And today I managed to get a couple of scrapbook pages planned - will have to stick them all together tomorrow or monday, really need to start going on my scrapbooking and my resolution to try and use up my paper scraps - I've got several boxes full and I won't have much storage once I have a job and we can get a house. So anyway I managed to get Ian's Valentine's Card finished - and unfortunately I'm safe sharing it this early cos he's already seen it - that'll teach me not to put it away straight away lol. Something different for me cos there's no stamped image - Ian said he likes it though, but I'm not so sure lol

And a close up of the 3d heart - my first attempt and I think there's going to be a few more appearances on cards and pages.

Supplies: 'Crazy Love' Paper by Bo Bunny, Mini-Ticket Die by Whimsey, Love Mini Ticket Stamps by Whimsey, Heart Embossing Folder, Heart Die by X-Cut, Heart Pin, Red Card, White Card, Red Ribbon, Red Ink Pad, Shimmer Chalks by Pebbles Inc

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

Right off to get some tea and then thinking a film before bed. Tomorrow I best get back on the wii cos I haven't been on it for a few days because I've been over at Ian's, and then try and get some scrapbooking done in the afternoon. XOX

oh wow i love the flowers.. i didn't used to be able to keep roses .. but here are a few rescue tips that might help..

Cut off the ends .. then plunge the stalks in boiling water ... and then cold water . ( This opens up the woody stems and lets the water up to the flower)


Roll the whole bunch in newspaper .. and then place horizontally in a bowl of water so the whole flower and stem is covered in water and leave for a while..

Both these tips were given to me by a flower arranger ( i used to go for lessons - and they work)

I always do the first .. when i am bought roses before i arrange them and they last for ages .

LOve the card .. the red and white is so striking

Have a great evening
