First Rose of Summer

Hiya everyone...are you all watching the footie..im not cant stand it..so after the day i have had with HR visiting me even though im off on the sick with a Drs note..they came..all not as bad as i thought but all not good either and decisions have to be made....i may well let time away from work be my decision and they can shoove the BRADFORD FACTOR where the sun dont shine...right now got that of my chest had to pop out after2 hours of talks.....So i bought the new monthly Quick Cards.issue 102 .as a treat...plus i fancied the free paper pack on the front lol!!! had my usual read and found something that made me wanna read more so this is what it ended up...




i do like challenges and this i sorrrta needed to be something that would take  my mind off whats been happening with work issues ...as it made me feel so drained..so got myself a cuppa  read the instructions and as there  was alot of measuring ..now i dont measure when i dont need to but this DID need measuring....its a book card so in my ususal vintage way this is what most of the afternoon has kept me from crying my sodding eyes out...i used old  12x12 card stock from K&CO had it ages and ages  which was double sided used three sheets to make this..the concertina was the hardest trying to get the top ..sides and the bottom pieces to slot together..but did it eventually..used a gogeous vintage image and sorry i can think where i got it ..so whoever it was thank you so much i used lace and pleated the corners as it didnt bend and im not good a mytering....made a pocket and tag the poem is my own poem that i wrote many years ago...and my proudest achievemnet that it was published in a book *the anthology of Midland Poets* was the title and the name is of the poem is First Rose...( was hanging out the washing and had to pass a rather big  bush which to my surprise had one lovely dewy silky pink rose on it had never flowered before ..so the poem was born)so roses  had to be my theme.. to finish off  i popped a matching old earing on the front with a cameo and bow....hope you like it i rather think its different and would look just as cute on more modern papers ans without all the embellies i use.....in the mag it said 2hrs to make ..well took me a bit longer lol!!! ttfn love and hugs sasssyxxxxxxxxxxxx
