Countdown to Christmas #9 Christmas Roses

Can you believe how time is flying? I just can’t believe I’ve been doing the countdown for 9 weeks now!!! Wow!!!
Here is the latest Countdown Project for you and if you sign up for my newsletter you will receive the free PDF delivered to your inbox! If you’ve already signed up now worries….you will continue to get it!
Here is my project hope you like it.
CTC #9 and Sketch and horses 039
Now I have to say not only did Sandi create the design for this she was my inspiration!! You can ask her …when I saw HER card I said and I quote “ I want that one”…she just giggled. You see her card is such a ME card. Go on over to her website and you’ll see why!!
With that said and her card emblazoned on my mind I went as dark as I could since she wouldn’t give me hers! She’s no fun.  Hehe……Just kidding!!! She’s an amazing talent and great friend who keeps me laughing. She still won’t share that dang card though!!! hehe
So you’ll just have to settle for mine….dark but dramatic, don’t you think? I think I will call this “Christmas Roses”!
Make sure to check out the other cards that the other amazing Artists have done and don’t forget to leave a comment everywhere you go…..we’re all giving blog candy on week 10!!!
Now on with the show!!!

Wow Lee, Im impressed!!! I was sure you would have a job going away from the white but you did it, and what a stunner it is too. Just makes you want to put a rose in your mouth and do the tango lol.
Well done!!!!

Hi Lee! Oh, it does look like the tango that Linda mentioned! It is such a gorgeous card! I love your flowers. I think this could be used for a wedding by changing out the sentiment too. Very classy!

Kate Creasey said...

Lee, I don't see dark I see elegant. Really great job! Love those roses.

Lee,Great card! I really will have to get that flower fusion sizzlet after seeing this. I have some on my birthday list that would gladly admit to a year older in order to receive a card like this! Thanks so much for your "dramatic" turn!

Gorgeous! I think I'll simplify it a bit and steal the idea for my Christmas cards. I really like the gray on gray effect -- very classy!

judyjstamper said...

very stunning!

Carol Carriveau said...

This is such a rich and elegant card....interesting colors but they obviously work very well for any special occassion - I can see as an anniversary card - very sexy! Also beautiful as a Christmas card. Great work!
