WOW - English Rose


Thank you to everyone for their kind comments recently, they are much appreciated and really spur me on!

Now for my next offering.  This is an entry for WOW! Embossing Powders' June Challenge which is Best Of British.  I have been exceptionally predictable and gone with... you guessed it... red, white and blue!  As I am English, I have popped a few little English roses on there too, for added patriotism!

Here is my homage to the British Isles;

A close up of my handmade 'roses'
As you can see, the lighting here isn't getting any better!  I have had to move from my original room into the one at the front of the house and the light isn't the same - not helped in the slightest by the poor excuse for summer we are currently experiencing!  Hey ho, what would a 'best of British' post be without a little moan about the weather!  Ha ha!

I'm enjoying being back in blogland and again would like to thank those who are kind enough to leave me a little comment just to let me know that they have stopped by  :)

Have a good one!
