You know when you have found just the right image when…..

……...Crafters Companion bring out a stamp which has knotting and poppies on it!
My MIL loves to knit and her favourite flowers are poppies……so I knew I had to use this stamp for her.

I made an 8 x 8 card and actually got out one of my embossing folders (which is a rarity for me!) to make the background on gorgeous centura pearl card.

I have coloured the image in with my Speccies and the little labels that you see are from Lili of the Valley.

I had such fun colouring this card and tried to follow the colours that Leanne had recently used in a C&C programme for the poppies…I think they came out pretty well in the end, even though that dark red is really scarily dark when you first lay it down!

Time to enter a few challenges now so here goes:

Well I am off now to as my cooker buzzer is beeping and a lovely leg of lamb and roasties awaits me…….mmmmmmmmm.
