Mojo Monday #233

Well, the weeding did not get done today either.  I had more important things to do, but I did do a few other things besides make cards.  I made 14 bars of lavender soap, measured up my games room to re-organise it into a Creating Space just for me, my washing and finally took my Mum to the doctors, and made 2 cards.  Not a bad days work.  I only have 2 more days of holidays, so the weeding will have to be done soon (the neighbours will run me out of the street soon or the local Council will issue a fire hazard infringement notice on me).

The challenge this week at Mojo Monday is based on the following sketch. 

I saw a post recently with these paper roses made using the Fancy Flower Punch from Stampin' Up.  Well I had the punch in my stash of gadgets, so off I went searching the internet on a tutorial on how to make them.  I found the tutorial here.  Naturally I just had to add the finished rose to my card for the challenge at Mojo Monday this week.  I think the finished flowers are just amazing, I made 2 sizes of the flowers and also some little rolled roses to make up the posy.
