Roses are Red


Morning everyone.  Boy was I surprised this morning when the radio anounced buses where cancelled. I put the dog out right away to check the weather, and nothing.  Apparently we are to have a massive amount of snow this afternoon.  So bus lines took precautions and cancelled all buses in the area.  So much for my day off alone.  Now we are all having a jammie day. 

I'm trying to get some valentines started.  Holidays always sneak up fast on me.  Last night I finished this one.  The strips are embossed with a spellbinders die.  I left the die on and used pearl ex to color it.  I used hairspray to seal but it still comes off, so I need to find something else.  Hubby suggested a spritz of white glue (he used that in modeling). If you have a product that works for you, pass it on please.  My rosebud and rose are cut from my silhouette. The mats were pulled out of my stash.
