So, a couple of days ago, I decided to use my McGill punches to (painstakingly) put this rose together. Every piece was shaped and edged with Distress Ink, the leaves were shaped and I actually put EVERY vein on them!!! Then, having no earthly idea what to do with it, I put it on top of my Copic Marker stand and there it sat, until today, when I found the perfect use for it with a site I stumbled on-and just love to pieces-called Freshly Made Sketches.
I was overjoyed, because this rose has been taunting me all this time:
"Look at me! One of the best flowers you've ever done! And you have NOTHING planned for me? What kind of stamping loser are you? Just when I think I've seen it all, YOU come along and take the cake! Why bother if you can only create me yet can't find a decent idea for me! And you call yourself a papercrafter?? You want to know the truth?? WELL YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!"
It's strange when my hallucinations take on the voice of my mother.
Anyway, I saw the sketch and used my rose. It must be happy because I haven't heard a peep since.
Now, if those &%$%#$ leaves would just stop whining about being "stuck up the rose's butt"...

What a wonderful way to start the day, I am sitting here having my morning coffee and laughing my head off at your write-up. Your rose is beautiful my friend, well worth the the wait to display it perfectly.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
