Introducing "ROSE"

Good Morning!  It is a balmy, hot and humid week here in most of southern Ontario and besides working I am trying to stay cool.  It seems like all you need is to move and you sweat ~ air conditioning or not.  I'm much more of a Fall/Winter gal and wish this heat would break soon.  I have been spending some time in my pink castle while it has been this hot; guess that is a bonus.

Okay, for you loyal followers of my blog, do you remember the hair colouring fiasco a couple months back?  To jog your memory, no matter how many times I tried I just could not get the long, flowing hair right on my new stamp.  Well, this weekend, I spent some time with my bff, Shari, who is my colouring hero and we worked on hair together.  I am so pleased with the results and hope that I can duplicate it again on my own.  Guess it just takes lots and lots of practice.  So, without further ado, here is "ROSE" ~ a blond version and a brunette version.

Thank  you for dropping in today.  I am so thankful for the people who support my little corner of this big ol' crafting world.  It gives me great pleasure to share my creations with you and I hope I can encourage you to continue crafting.

Stay cool, my friends.  See you back here tomorrow for the winners of the "CANADA DAY" blog hop.
