  1. One of my best friends is named Rose. It is really Rosemary but I call her Rose. She would love this card. I have been resistant to get that stamp set and thinlits but I might have to cave in. There are just too many wonderful cards out there made with it. But, then again.... we will see. The more I see of that sentiment on the inside the more I want that stamp set too. Boy, do I have a case of the "wants" or what and these are from last year's catalog! Great birthday card for a special lady!

  2. My Mother's middle name was Rose. Always one of my favorites. If I'd had a girl, there would be a Rose in her name somewhere.

    I really like these thinlits. The trick with sticking them down is to put a thin line or dots of the Tombo Multipurpose glue and then let it set for a few minutes. Then when you turn it over to put the rose in place, there's no ooze of glue coming out and making shiny spots on the cardstock. Try it out!
