Hello friends, and welcome back, today I needed to be creative and make something fun, most of my cards are fun, but this one is extra special.  The Rose in the card is from a friend of my Mom's she is a sweet lady that lives in the same Senior Complex where my parents live.  She received this rose as a gift from her Grandson and family at Easter.  It wasn't doing so good the dirt wasn't holding water and the leaves were all falling off, a mess, so she said to my mom and I if we could save it, we said we would try.  Well I gave it a wee bit of love and some fertilizer and took the plastic wrap that was around it off, and new dirt new container.  Within a week I had two buds on it and it has been blooming every since.  I was going to give it back to her, but she was so pleased I saved it, that she said you keep it, and just take pictures for me to see it once in awhile. So I decided I should make her a card.  I hope she likes it, as this Rose is so pretty, and growing so nicely.  I think I will name it "Muriel".  Thanks again for stopping and I hope you have a wonderful day.  Cheers.
