Good Friends!

 It's Saturday and Challenge Day at
Our Creative Cecile is Hosting and chose a
simply divine photo for our Inspiration.

I love to see what people take from a photo - 
we all see different things that catch the eye.
I went with the colour, tall stems but hearts and 
 similar wording in the sentiment.
One has a die cut and bow,
 the other stencilled with a punched heart.
I wasn't sure which one I liked and found
them hard to photograph.
The sentiment is small and I now see
I should have used different paper. 
This is  one of those challenges the outcome
I am not completely happy with.
Head over and be impressed with
what caught the eye of our Guest Lynne
 and Talented Team Mates.
Till next time -

A 'Blooming' Birthday

Another gloomy overcast day has given me 
a rest day from gardening and a day just to play 
in a few of my favourite challenges.

I got out one of my favourite stamps to ink up - 
Rubbernecker W/C Poppies #719
 with Versafine Clair Nocturne
and heat embossed clear.
Coloured with Tim's Oxide inks and a 
touch of Lindy's Magicals and Perfect Pearls for shimmer.
Flicked a few 'splats'.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations.
Die cut is Scrap Dragons.
Background coloured the same as the poppy,
 cut with SB square die.
Adhered to the back and
attached to cream linen card base. 

This is heading over to - 
 Color Hues has a great colour combination - 
The Flower Challenge are celebrating
(without the topping)
