Firsts


Did you ever as a kid count all the firsts when the New Year arrived? My sister and I would. I find my kids doing it and I laugh. I wonder why we do that??? Then I started creating my card and I said to myself. "This is my first distress card for the new year." LOL!!


I'm stretching out my distress inks legs with Rose Scented Tilda. Something else made me smile as I was coloring her, all the "Rose" songs and poems that were out there. WOW!! How many can you think of? I would love to hear which was the first one that came to your mind, please leave a comment.

My first....The Rose by Bette Midler.

Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger
An endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower
And you, its only seed
It's the heart, afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It's the dream, afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul, afraid of dying
That never learns to live
When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed
That with the sun's love, in the spring
Becomes the rose


It has nothing to do with my sweet birthday card but that's what stuck in my head!! Hope you enjoy my FIRST Distress Ink card for 2012 and ROSE scented Tilda.
