RED Roses and Hugs, and a Teapot Poem!

If you know me at all, you know today I am a happy camper. The CC is banana, moss and RED! That makes my whole day!

The roses are stamped on banana, colored with markers and painted, and framed. Wasn't I lucky to have this wonderful striped paper in my stash? Can you imagine the amount of dp I have with some RED in it?? The only pile bigger is white, of course.

Hope you like my card for today. I'll be back in my addict...erm....craft room in a minute to do the Teapot Tuesday challenge too. If you have time, come back later to see. Have a great day!

And now for the zany Teapot Tuesday story: The RED bus and 42,000 pencils.

Do not laugh and do not smirk,
We've been warned by Sgt. Burke.

No more pencils. That's not cool...
Break's the city's littering rule.

Breaking rules, we say, is fun.
On this bus we've just begun.

Burke, he tells us, without fail,
Any more and we're in jail!

In jail we know there is no tea,
Just BARS - hey wait! Sounds good to me!

(I'll have a wine spritzer please!)

(Sincere apologies to Dr. Seuss)

When do you have all that time to stamp and write poetry too? You put me to shame. I spend all my time day dreaming about all the cards I should be making. Ah me, so many ideas--so little time. Great job on both cards. I love those roses and the gorgeous frame setting them off. The brads and their placement look terrific here too. And where did you find that policeman image? So dang cute.
I almost made it to the tea partyfor the first time in months yesterday, then DH (who is semi retired) came up with something for me to do. Is your Hubby home and under foot all the time now too? I say semi-retired because Tom ihas always been in business for himself so he won't quit completely. Love your cards, but your comment thingy was sooo hard to find. Thanks for that wonderful comment you left for me the other day. I was truly touched by your sweet words. I appreciate them so much as well as your friendship.
Hugs, Mel

I LOVE the rose card and the second one just plain scared me. I ran into this guy recently, he was waiting at the very bottom of the hill where you unintentionally pick up speed and I got my first ticket in 25 years. I think 25 years ago I may have been able to flirt my way out of it but those days are long gone, sigh...
