3 hours card

Have you ever used 3 hours to just create a card? I did! And this is the result of that 3 hours...


Don't ask me why or how, it was just that much time to create this.



And I flip it...


More pictures....


See this rose, scroll down to find out where it came from



Here's the link to CPS (Card Positioning Systems) if you want to play along

When I came back from San Francisco late Sunday evening, there was a package waiting for me, it was from lovely Ros Crawford, what to see what she sent me?


A beautiful card (as usual), and a lovely decorated box in my favorite colors. How did she know that my favorite shade is purple?

And LOOK!


A box filled with her beautiful handmade roses.... isn't she sweet?

It also came with 2 easel from Ikea, how did she know that I love Ikea stuff?
I used to go to Ikea almost every morning when I was in Singapore, have coffee with my girlfriend Ann, and then browsed through the store.
We visited Ikea in New Jersey couple of time while we lived in Manhattan, but now, we do not have an Ikea in Vegas, so sad....


Ros is so sweet, she knew that Linda live in Vegas too, she made us these roses so we could use it when we get together for craft. And one of the easel is for Linda too. I brought some of these roses and the easel to Linda this morning, she is happy as can be, thanks Ros, for being so sweet!

I might be lucky to have decided on the color of my card base in three hours. LOL This is beautiful Kirsty! Love the colors you chose and the punch elements. That Ros was a sweetie to send you those beautiful roses and the easel. We can already see from this card that her roses will be used to make some wonderful cards.
