Yes - I'm still here, Sorry for being so Quiet

Hello everyone, sorry for the delay in posting anything lately.  My household has been pretty busy & hectic in the last couple of weeks & sometimes it's very important for family to come first.  I'm having my second card class this afternoon, so will be posting properly very soon, plus I have not forgotten the requests on how to make the Hersey's Kisses Chocolate Roses.  In fact I'm working on something extra special for Easter based on how the chocolate roses are made & I'm getting excited at the thought of sharing this with you soon - that's if it works of course, hoping it will.

Look What Arrived in My Letterbox

Aren't these cards lovely?  Trish put them through my letterbox a few days ago.  I really like them all very much, but must admit I do have a favourite.

The card on the bottom left has been made with Sense of Time from the Spring Mini catalogue.  I love how Trish has stamped the background with this set & En Francais, then mounted the words with the coloured thread running across the card.

Many Thanks to All Those Who Have Contacted Me About the Roses

Wow, a very big thank you to everyone who has emailed me comments about my roses.  It was an absolute pleasure to receive emails from so many parts of the world.  And yes I will share how I made the roses later in the week.  They are very easy to make & I will attempt my very first tutorial with matching photos.

As a cancer survivour myself it was an honour to make these for Lorraine to sell during the Relay For Life she's doing this coming Saturday at Mt Smart Stadium here in Auckland New Zealand.

Aren't these roses beautiful, I made them for my friend Lorriane who will be participating in the Relay For Life at Mt Smart Studium Saturday 20 February 2010. 

Relay is not a race – it’s a celebration and awareness-raising event for the survivors and families of those with cancer - it’s a time for remembrance. Started in 1985 by an American Cancer Society volunteer, Relay is now the biggest fundraiser for cancer in 20 countries around the world.

It was a pleasure to make these roses for Lorraine who intends to sell them during the relay.

Important information I forgot to mention in this post yesterday.
The Roses are made with Hersey's Chocolate Kisses
so not only are they lovely to look at but you can also enjoy eating the chocolate kiss hidden inside each rose.
