Brayed Roses


Here is fun card that created after seeing how Patty Bennett used the brayer to add color to the roses. It is fun and easy card to create. There are 3 colors in the roses. First use the Manhattan Flower textured impressions die on the white shimmery card stock. Turn the flowers over so you are coloring with the brayer on side where the lines are the flowers are in (usually we use the line out). Use the brayer to add the color (rose red, blush blossom and so saffron). You start out with the darkest color to the lightest color. Run the brayer over the flower (it's OK to have no color on some space). Each color adds more color to the flower.

Sure hope that you enjoyed your visit today. This card looks so good in person. God Bless.

Family Tea and lunch


We had a Family Tea and lunch today. We hosted it at our home. This is a picture of my mom (Mary) and me. The other picture is of Renee (my sister), Gwen (her granddaughter) and Amber (my daughter). My Grandma Pimentel has cancer and we had to put her in a health care home in April up in Sacramento. When she moved into this home, she gave each daughter and granddaughter one of her tea pots and tea cups. Each great daughter received a tea cup. So today we hosted a Family Tea Party and lunch in honor of my Grandma.

Renee, Amber and I went up to Sacramento last weekend to see Grandma. She is doing well and has adjusted living in her new home.

Everyone have a great Mother's Day and enjoy yourself.
