Sorry my post was late, I have had the worst day, we had freakish floods AGAIN!! Do u remember the pics I put on my blog a few weeks ago?? Yes well after having everything professionally cleaned and looking lovely again we got flooded eeek and all while my hubby is away :( But then tonight my night was cheered up Kell rang to say will i be up at 10.30pm as she needs to talk and i was like ok sure, and guess who knocked on my door at 10.30!!!!??? Yep Kellie hehehhehe with a box of chocolates too isnt she the best!!!!!!!!! {dont forget she lives 2 hrs away} And this weekend is extra special guess you could call it mine and Kells anniversary hehhe we met one year ago today and have become the best of friends.

CHAPTER 3: Painting the Roses Red
"Would you tell me please," said Alice a little timidly, "Why are you painting those roses?"
Five and Seven said nothing, but looked at Two. Two began in a low voice, "Why the fact is, you see, Miss, this here ought to have been a Red rose tree, and we put a white one in by mistake"...

Welcome back! We're painting the Roses RED...and blue...and purple....and hey, we're painting our NAILS too! Check out this AWESOMELY ALICE inspiration picture featuring this SUPER cool new O.P.I. Polish collection, "Wonderland".

Goodness Kristy, how awful about the floods! But what a wonderful thing it is to have good friends to cheer us when we're stressed. You know she's a good friend when she brings CHOCS!

I hate that you're having flood issues, yet again! I really like how you've distressed this card. The pairing of ribbons is sweet too! Great card!

It's lovely to have such a great friend!! the card is STUNNING girl! Love the colours and papers and the way you coloured her is gorgeous!

You go Kellie! Not only is she a treasured friend to you Kristy and drove up to help you, But she had to actually drive in that weather as well to get to you! Amazing frindship you share. Cherish each other ;)
It's obviously not affecting your creative side Kristy. This card is beautiful and that image is gorgeous!! Love it. The key charm is a cute touch.
Good luck with all that water!
