I hope this post 'goes public' at the correct time as I have scheduled it. I have had to go into hospital for a bit of an op. for biopsies, but hopefully will be home tonight, and getting good news in a few days time. I generally react badly to anaesthetics, so thought it would be safer to schedule my post.
The weather is definitely getting more bizarre...just a few weeks ago, we were on evacuation alert because of dreadful bushfires nearby, and were experiencing temperatures in the mid to high 30s. Now we have floods after many days of continuous, torrential rain...yesterday here in the Hunter Valley had the highest rainfall, in a single day, on record. We are back in winter clothing and bedding. It is freezing cold, yet it is only 10 days or so until summer.

of me remember anything else about them. Oh dear, is this a sign of getting old???
A closer look at the gorgeous roses. I coloured them with my Promarkers,
and that took quite some time, as I coloured each petal, one by one,
using 2 reds and a pink.

The cardstock I used for the layering is from the same 12x12 burgundy
sheet, but has photographed anywhere from red to black.
