Roses, Roses, Roses

Today I got back to the Studio and packed up Granny Charlotte's Blog Candy, then I sat down and decided it was time I tried those Roses and re-inkers.  As you can see I love pink so that was the majority of roses I made.  Now I have to be honest I have a little artist dish and I put pinks in without writing it down the colors.  I think with a lot of practice I could make these gorgeous like the other girls do but I didn't have much luck with the puddles of water and then touching the re-inker with a water brush. 

I had alot of fun with this, I used SU card stock and the stamp set Fifth Avenue Floral, I stamped the rose on the card stock and then added a leaf and layered the watercolor rose.  Then I added a butterfly that Karen sent me from SU, I added ribbon and mini gems to make a simply card beautiful.

I'd like to know if I've been black balled from the blog list or what?  I am totally in awe that I offered a $200 blog candy and only had 19 ladies enter for that drawing.  Now I offer a second chance Spellbinders Rectangle dies and still it seems that somethings wrong.  I'm getting over 100 hits a day since I started the blog candy contest but I'm lucky to get maybe 5 comments a day.  Now when I partake in the 'Operation Write Home' blog hops I was swamped with comments and I didn't offer anything but a tutorial so what's going on?  OK, I just wanted to vent so I'll step away from the podium and go to bed.
You all have a blessed day!!!

I'm here... I just read through Outlook with RSS and am to busy (I read at work) or too lazy (depending on the day) to open a new window to be able to comment!

The art is, as usual, beautiful!

And I didn't enter cuz I have too much of my own that I need to "send out into the world" to get any more coming in, LOL!!

The roses are beautiful. My Dad loved roses and every time I see one it brings him to my thoughts. The card is so pretty. I love the 3D look. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great weekend!!!

Your roses are fabulous! I love how you colored them. I read your blog through Google Reader thus have to click into your actual blog, then on comments to leave a comment. Most days I'm short on time and just don't do it. I didn't enter to win because I have plenty of Spellbinders dies - its a great offer and I hope someone takes you up on it soon. Don't get discouraged.
