Pink Poppy


Hello!  I'm still around - I just don't seem to be in control of time these days .  I've still been crafting, but there's never enough time and nothing seemed to get finished, but I did plan ahead for today's rain and I'm enjoying a day in the craft room and have managed to put together a couple of cards.

This gorgeous poppy has been sitting on my desk just waiting for a sentiment for well over a week. so I stamped the Tim Holtz words and clear embossed and then inked up some backing card with Picked Raspberry to tone in with the poppy.

I am going to enter this at
  Stamping Sensations - The Earth Laughs in Flowers
  Penny Black and More - Summer Colours
  Craft Stamper -  Take It Make It

Thanks for calling in, enjoy your weekend
Avril xx

Well what can I say Avril other than I adore your creation, the fact it's a Poppy does sway me somewhat but equally I love the subtle patterns of the background which compliment the colour of the Poppy.

As always it's lovely to see you at Penny Black and More and Stamping Sensations, thanks so much for joining in.

I know what you mean about having a few unfinished pieces,' tomorrow is always another day' is my current way of thinking.

Love the vibrant pink poppy and the matching colored panel. Beautifully stenciled background in soft tones and a great sentiment.

This is a super creation Avril, the poppy stands out so well on the subtle background. I too am losing track of my days, I've just returned from a fortnight down in Cornwall and am desperately trying to catch up with everything!!! Many thanks for joining us at Penny Black and More this month for our summer colours theme xxx
