Happy Tuesday


Another lovely day with blue skies, it's lovely to get the washing on the line----today I have good intentions to start on the task of clearing rubbish from the craft room, you know...... all the bits you buy when you first start, thinking they will come in.... pictures cut from magazines and coloured silver paper!! I think I have more rubbish than stash lol
When I saw this House Mouse challenge yesterday, I just had to have a go.... and I just love poppies

Had the paper ages, think it could be PM
Green card matted onto red
Cuttlebugged with Butterfly Emboss folder
Image House Mouse unmounted stamp
Sentiment from same set
Coloured with watercolour pencils and poppy 3D glossed
Corners, gems, ribbon and butterflies from stash
Machine stitched in white thread

I am entering this into the following challenges;

House Mouse challenge ----- embossing

Crafty Cardmakers -----colour with pencils

My partner in crafting crime --- use new stash ( stamp)

Thank you for your visit
