Well, this morning I headed off into town on my own - the first time I have gone out unaccompanied since 5 December. I was extremely careful when getting on and off the bus, going up or down stairs and walking on tiled floors because I knew that if I tripped, slipped or stumbled I would automatically put out my right hand to save myself - ouch! And I am happy to say that I managed it there and back without anything untoward happening. But the best bit was that I got my hair cut (long overdue) and having the hairdresser wash my hair was pure luxury after being subjected to Tom's ministrations for the last two months! I mean girls, would you like it if someone wrung out your hair like they were wringing out a mop? No, don't think so! Anyway, as I had to hang around in town for a few hours because I hadn't made an appointment, I haven't actually made a card today. So instead I thought I would share a card I made at the weekend. It's another rose card made with one of my own photographs.
I had already played around with the photo in Painter Essentials 4 so took it into Craft Artist and made the topper. Once I had done that I simply layered it up onto some peach coloured pearl card and some copper coloured foil card. Very simple and straightforward.
Here is the original photograph
Again this rose was in a boquet of flowers, although I do have photos of roses which we grew ourselves, mainly pink and white ones, which I will use on cards eventually. The roses in boquets always look perfect though - untouched by the elements!
Tomorrow I go for my first physiotherapy appointment so whether or not I will be able to craft after that remains to be seen. I will try and get something done before I go, just to be on the safe side!
Thank you for dropping in.
