Only Imitation

Making paper roses for my Mum's birthday card. Just looked up the lyrics of 'Paper Roses' which I remember as a Marie Osmond song. It was first sung by Anita Bryant in 1960, and got  to the top five. Marie Osmond was number one with the song in the U.S. country chart in 1973. It's a sad song, so does not reflect my paper roses, just that they made me think of it. Since I last wrote on here the world has become even madder, especially my part of it. It may be depressing but it is never dull! Essentially though, day to day things carry on, despite all the hoo ha over everything. School has two more weeks to go (hurray!) then I will be free-well-apart from Arty Party but that's not so bad. Then I intend to do all the things I am always planning. This week I have had a big face, as I had an abcess from a cracked tooth. Painful and made me look quite frightening. It has gone down now, with the help of antibiotics, so I am pleased about that. 

Pretty aren't they? They are a bit fiddly but quite therapeutic to make.

Very nice! It's going to be an amazing card!
Glad your tooth swelling has gone down, must have been really painful too.

the roses are really pretty! So sorry about your tooth, I hope that it was saved and all is well with it, perhaps you should pop over and have Dennis the Dentist take a gander!
