Happy Wednesday!

Spring has sprung at my house! I just had to take a picture of my very 1st rose and share :-) when it's fully opened it has a ton of petals and is very big. It's an English rose called Abramam Darby. When it starts getting hot here it won't produce like it does in the spring, so I really enjoy them now!


Today's my Friday! I'm taking a few days off to get some stuff done around the house. I just love to spring clean. I know I'm slightly sick lol :-)



I made this card with Crate paper and the picture was found at a little Antique Store a few weeks ago. I love her sweet face and curls :-)

Have a great day! Char

What a beautiful rose, Char! And an even more beautiful card! You KNOW I love that vintage image! So gorgeous. Love the scallops and the seam binding bow, and that rolled flower is fabulous.
Hope you enjoy your spring cleaning. That bug actually hasn't bit me yet. I tend to get the urge to super clean at back to school time, for some reason. ;)

Spring? You're so lucky! I'm still waiting...at least I can see green buds popping out of the ground.

Your card is fantastic! Love the sweet little girl you found.
