Poppies over the meadows



Morning Peeps, the sun is shining but will it last ? Yesterday was a real washout, we had it all hail, thunder torrential downpours but no sunshine.

A mega quick post here at I have to be at the AHT in Newmarket for 10am with Holly for her follow up appointment to see when they will operate. I am hoping it will be soon as she is a big girl now, at six months old she is almost the size of our grown up labs so her 'little problem' becomes more of as issue, especially at night when one puppy pad is jot not big enough if you follow my drift.

So a share of a card I came up with using Stamp Addicts rural stamp sets and Clarity poppies. A simple enough card stamped and inked through an oval mask and a little poppy in the corner created with Tonic Rose stamp and punch set. Most of the colouring is Pan Pastels with a little watercolour pencil to highlight.

OK, must rush now and will catch you all later.

Brenda, a delightful seen. I actually feel like I'm looking through an oval window at the valley below. Gosh - talk about a storm! Sounds as though you were assaulted all right - glad it did not do too much damage. Maybe everything will green up now. I like the way you created your card - it reminds me of the old old 40s and 50s photo albums that my parents and grandparents had. And you used photo corners, too! I always forget about using those. Love card, Brenda! xo

Gerrina said...

The card is stunning again! And the poppie in the corner looks freshley picked! Fingers crossed for Holly. Hugs, Gerrina

Tanya said...

Paula (PEP) said...

Very striking with the dimensional poppy balancing those of your image beautifully. I particularly like the way your birds are flying out of oval too. Hope everything goes well at the AHT & that the op can be done soon.
