A Single Red Red Rose

I love red roses!

We have rose bushes that look ‘straggly’ but they produce roses year round here in Florida.

I had a little fun using PicMonkey and IPiccy to add frames and reflections on some of my photos.

And then I tried out Ribbet and found a pretty daisy frame and some different fonts.

My girlfriend, Diane from Diane Wants to Write told me about Ribbet and it’s fun and easy to use! Thanks Diane! (visit her below for a Beautiful Sunday)

I have been looking for good, free framing tools. Thanks for the suggestions. The rose is lovel.

Diane said...

Very neat!

Vee said...

What a pretty mosaic...both of them, actually. I remember playing with Ribbet once. It was fun. Roses are so pretty...do you Floridians not prune them or are the scragglies growing wild?

Your roses are so pretty. Mine are in their summer slump. Your photos are so pretty. I really need to practice some new photo editing. I'm using PicMonkey and really like it. Thanks for the tip on Ribbet. I'll check it out. Hope it's easy, 'cause I need easy. :)
Hope you had a great weekend.

Somehow I pictured you as a more pink or lavender kind of girl.

But red is perfect too.

Ribbet looks fun from what I see in your pics! :)

Cranberry Morning said...

How beautiful! I love roses, but seem to have a black thumb where they're concerned. I can't kill house plants if I try,(well, you know what I mean) but I can't keep a rose alive. :-( Fun to look at yours - and to think they blossom all year round there!

Stephanie said...

Beautiful! I love the rose surrounded by seashells - very pretty :) Enjoy your Monday.

Hugs!

Shirley said...

Oh, I love red roses too! Beautiful photos and photo enhancements, Diane! Thanks for your kind visit..yay for another Harry Connick Jr. fan!!!

podso said...

The roses are beautiful. It would be nice to have them year round. A very colorful collage!

I love red roses too and just planted two new bushes in my back yard.. They are wonderful, aren't they. Always bring a smile.
Big hugs,

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

So pretty Diane. I really like the red rose with the fabric effect. Love PicMonkey, but haven't tried IPiccy.

ImSoVintage said...

I can almost smell them from here. I primarily use Ribbet, but use PicMonkey for collages. xo Laura

Gardening in a Sandbox said...

I love to play with various programs and push buttons just to see what art I can make. It is fun. Valerie

Heart Vintage Design said...

I love Picmonkey! Great photos too : )

The Boston Lady said...

I will have to check this out! Florida roses are troopers! Ann

Joy H said...

So pretty, love the collage and the daisy frame you added to the photo.
I sent you a goodreads friend request. :)

Sallie said...

Your just having too much fun! That daisy frame is adorable.

Donna said...

You did a great job with the embellishments! I'll have to check out the Ribbet web site. I've never heard of it! Thanks!

Donna said...

Ah, Ribbet looks like the old photo editing site that went away. I added it to the listing on "A Personal Photo Challenge" for free online editing resources. Thanks for the tip!

Linda Walker said...

I don't know how on earth I missed this post! Love that red rose amongst the shells! Makes me want to take a sniff!!!

Pondside said...

Roses and shells - perfect together!....like the scent of salt water and wild roses at the beach.

Leave It To Davis said...

This would be a really pretty calendar page. Do you ever go to Shutterfly and make calendars or pillows or plates with your pictures? You should! I do all the time and they offer 50% off a lot....and if you save Coke points, you can turn them in and get FREE stuff....you should try it!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

I love red roses too! I've never tried Ribbet, will have to check it out!
Thanks so much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday...
Blessings,
Cindy
