Pick 3 for the Week of 10/29/12

So, we spent most of the weekend bracing for the "frankenstorm", Sandy, that is supposed to hit our area.  We are starting to see the beginnings of it...heavy rain for the past 12 hours and the wind is picking up.  We are not even close to the conditions they are predicting...that is supposed to happen later today.  I have decided that is not a matter of if we lose power, but when, so...I am trying to do all things that require power.  Laundry, pay bills (online), print out some digis to color, etc.

So, here is my Pick 3...

1)  Rose Creations - this is just a little bit of the beautiful roses this crafter made using Spellbinders Rose Creations die.  She has a wonderful tutorial to help you along.  I have this die...I need to start using it like this.  These roses are beautiful!

2)  Flourishes - I love how she gives her stamped flourishes dimension using pens to shadow and highlight.  Great directions to create it yourself.

3)  Punched Rose - you are not going to believe what punch they used to create this rose....SU owl punch!  Wow, I knew the punch was versatile, but a rose???  I just got my punch, a gift from a bestie - Thank you!, so I will have to try this out.  Hey, something to do that does not require power :)

OK, I have to get back to my "To Do List of things that require power"...for my friends facing the threat of this "Perfect Storm" or its side effects, stay safe & my prayers are with you.
