Last one..........

Here is the last one from the Arty Set by Leanne Ellis, this one makes six new stamps coming to you December time. I would have to call this one English Rose, unless you can come up with something better. 
I am really excited by this collection, Leanne has amazed me with this artwork.
 I just know that you are all going to create such beautiful things with these designs.

***********

A huge thank you for all your kind words, yesterday got worse before it got better but its good to know that I am not the only one to have a teenage horror in the house and I hope that as time moves on things will become better but at this time, distance is what is needed. You comments and stories really helped and I thank you for those, I really do.

**********

I will drawn candy winners tomorrow, I must catch up before starting anything else and we are due a delivery from the factory which Funkykits is waiting for. Mark is back to work today and all things will be up to date before he starts anything new, I am keen to hear his stories from the NEC, I am sure he will have a few :)

*********
As usual I will give away this stamp to one lovely follower who takes the time to comment on this post. Tomorrow all will be drawn, one by one, I have my work cut out there!

have an ink tastic day girls, if you want to craft that's up to you, you'll find the time if you want it enough, after all who ever notices if the floors have been cleaned and the windows washed, housework can wait.

She reminds me of that old manga cartoon Lady Oscar. Probably because of the roses, since the drawing is so "Leanne" and nothing like those mangas. Ha, I'm "poisoned" with the title song, now. I was watching it in Italian when I was a teen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUHJVubjLbI

The only person that notices if the housework is done is usually the person that does it. I don't like housework but love to see the house all clean and tidy when its done , at least till hubby and son come home. I have to say as I had a hysterectomy 4 weeks ago tomorrow I haven't been able to do much housework as my little instruction book says lift nothing more than a 2 pint kettle for the first 4 weeks. I can dust so all my kichen surfaces keep getting cleaned and any where else I can dust but I can't wait till I can start weilding my vaccum cleaner, hubby seems to think once a week on a cream carpet is fine, and all the little bits of housework I can't do is niggling me. I do keep coming and crafting or blog surfing but as I can't sit too long I have to keep moving around for changes in position. I never ever thought I would look forward to housework and I'm sure when I can do it again the novelty will soon wear off.

This leanne ellis stamp is so pretty it reminds me of a very expensive silk wedding dress I fell in love with 17 years ago it had a huge skirt with big silk roses dotted on it and the neckline had roses just like these in cream and dark green silk leaves. I would have loved it but at £15,000 it was way out of my league. the shoes that matched cost as much as my whole wedding out fit but it really was lovely.

weewiccababe said...

yup LE's arty designs are definitely growing on me - I love the thoughtful expression on her face.

have managed to formulate a bit of a routine where I drop the kids at school, do the housework - make a start on crafting, pick the wee one up from nursery and make her lunch, get back into crafting until its time for the other 2 to get picked up. The wee one is quite happy to sit on my bed and either watch telly or play with her DSi

now that I've told someone, the whole routine will go to pot! lol

kaos said...

I think English Rose is perfect! Love all the roses!! another very lovely image!

Housework - don't have time for housework...work and crafting fill my day *lol*
people are only allowed to enter my home with sufficient warning time as my living room is my crafting room - and I don't think I have to tell a fellow crafter what that results in *lol*
hugs

Anita said...

This is a beauty, not sleeping but in the roses......
And keep in mind your teenager will grow up and than you have lovely adults. You'll see.

Max said...

She is pretty but not sure whether she's an English Rose though.
Did you know that some say the best roses are cultivated in Aberdeen? The colder climate makes them much stronger and less suspeptible to disease - HONESTLY! So maybe she should be an Aberdeen Rose instead =)

Antonia said...

Stunningly beautiful, serenity blooming all over her. So much lovely rubber on offer at the moment choosing is very difficult.

I have some horror memories of my boys teenage years but was very heartened to get an apology from one of the culprits .... after his boys hit their late teens....

Simply gorgeous.

Maria Therese said...

Julie said...

English Rose is a lovely name for her. My dad always used to call my mum his English Rose.
I hope things get better with your daughter soon. My daughter is nearly 20, is stunning, has a great social life with lots of friends, but is a completely different person at home. She's just finished some seasonal work she had, so now spends half the day in bed, and the other half getting ready to go out. I hardly see her any more.

Jane said...

Kimberly S said...

I think that English Rose is a lovely name for the image. It is such a pretty stamp with all of those detailed roses. :)

mustavcoffee said...

Love Leanne's art this is no exception, just gorgeous. Sad to hear you're having teenage problems. Oh yes been there, not fun at all in fact mine lasted a whole lot longer than just teen years but you don't need to hear that. They do eventually turn into lovely human beings, you just have to hang in there, best of luck :0) xx

Annelies said...
