Happy Sunday from my Rose Garden

Patty's rose garden, Happy Sunday blog check in. www.PattyStamps.com

Happy Sunday!!  It’s been way too long since I shared photos from my rose garden here on my blog!  I hope you enjoy some pretties and that it brings you a spot of joy today!

I do share lots of my garden and rose photos on social media, but I realize not everyone follows me outside of my blog, so that’s why I decided to share a little today!  The bouquet above was in my craft room (well, you can probably tell that).  You’ll see a bouquet in the background of some of my crafting videos… I try to keep a bouquet from my rose garden in my craft room all the time.  The colors and beauty inspire me and make me smile. 

 

Patty's rose garden, Whiskey Mac Rose cultivated from a cutting in 2016.  www.PattyStamps.com

I know I inherited my love of gardening and roses from my mom… I just wish I could have appreciated her efforts more as a teenager at home.  The Whiskey Mac rose was her favorite in her garden.  After she passed away in 2006, we tried taking cuttings from her Whiskey Mac but I could never get them to root.   In 2016, Eric found a cutting from a Whiskey Mac on ebay (of all places!) – it was only 12″ tall – and we planted it, and it’s taken several moves around the garden (it’s in a huge pot) but as you can see above, it’s now VERY happy!!

In my garden, I have 6 rose bushes and 7 Alstromeria.  As you can see from the bouquet above, I love a variety of colors in my garden and in my bouquets.

Above: this is my bouquet this week.  I love this pretty vase… it was from a grocery store!!!! 

And lastly, just cuz I wanted to document this… we were so happy when a few of the restaurants finally opened around here (at 25% capacity) a couple weeks ago… this was our first meal out INSIDE a restaurant since March.  Tacos de Costra for me and a Quesabirria for Eric, from Que Onda in Pinole.  SUCH GOOD food and a great variety too!

Thanks for hanging out with me today.  Hope you enjoyed the photos from my rose garden.  Do you have a garden?  What do you grow?

So here is one fun secret about these cards:  Die cut the Wreath Builder Dies from the Arrange a Wreath bundle using Forever Greenery Designer paper!!  (Hey, Forever Greenery is ON SALE this month – 15% off during Oct. 2020)!  Watch the video to see all of the details – it’s at the bottom of the post today.

In addition to using the Forever Greenery die cut wreath pieces, I also used the gold foil die cut wreath pieces from the Forever Gold laser-cut paper on most of my projects.  I just loved the gold peeking out behind the Forever Greenery paper.  I also used the “In Good Taste” textile and woodgrain paper patterns on my cards. Great News… it’s also on sale during Oct. 2020! yay!

 

 

All of the flowers are die cut from the flower dies in the Arrange a Wreath bundle.  Most of them are die cut with Poppy Parade cardstock.  The flowers below are just Whisper White cardstock.   I sponged Poppy Parade ink on some of the flowers and Frost White Shimmer paint on others.  See the video at the bottom of this post for all the details.
