  9. I did not have success when I first tried the roses. May have to give this a go again at another time. Unless I have that aha moment, sometimes things just don't work out for me no matter how many times I try. :/ Wishing you a fabulous Friday. Tammy

    1. Oh shoot, Tammy; that's too bad. Oh well, other things will come up and then perhaps if you come back to it, it will click.
