I'll allow "pinning" as long as you pull up the post & pin from it for a direct link for others. :-)

Here are those little roses

that I told you about yesterday. I really wanted the ones I've been seeing on craft blogs. The posters were all saying "Prima" but I've been direct to Prima & cannot find them anywhere. Well, the other day, I just happened to be in BigLots! poking around and found myself on their crafting aisle. Normally, I hit the store for my snaps that I use on my journals, but something caught my eye and made me wonder, "would THIS work for what I'm wanting?"
$1.00 per package! Can you believe it?!? This is a sticker, made to stick on packages or gift bags. I wondered if I could peel them off the backing...

These are off of two of the stickers (I bought 3 & need to go get more!)...just carefully peel them off the heart-shaped paper backing (they're hot-glued on) and brush the dried baby's breath off of them.

Here's what they look like up close...

And I put some next to a nickel so you could get an idea of their real size. The two colored ones are done with Ranger Distressed ink (the pink one) and Stampin Up craft ink spot (So Saffron & Eggplant) and the color was painted on with a Tsukineko Fantastix in the brush tip. Now you know why I scattered them all over that card I mailed out yesterday! I LOVE these little roses & maybe if you have a BigLots near you, you'll be able to find some and have some in your crafting stash!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of your day!!

Well shoot Sis..........I've been to THREE Big Lots.......yes.....I said '3'.......and no cute little flowers......sigh. But I'm sure they'll get them in 'eventually' like they did the magnetic closures (took weeks & weeks).

But they sure are cute & I'm glad that you have them. But I've got enough flowers to play with in the meantime.

Luv ya & waiting to hear how your test went.
