Fantasy Stampers - Poppy Appeal

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Happy Saturday. I hope that you have something nice planned for the weekend. Once we have cleaned out the bunnies we are dashing off to see our daughter. Her fiance is working and we are going to help with some jobs around their house like taking stuff to the tip. On Sunday we are having lunch with our friend who lost his wife recently.

The new challenge starts today on the Fantasy Stampers Challenge blog the theme is Poppy Appeal. I do love poppies on cards.


I have a bit of a confession. I did make a card with all the elements you can see in the tag but I didn't like it. So I made the tag and I was much happier with the result. 


The wooden mounted  stamp is Poppy Poem by Penny Black. I stamped it with black archival onto water colour card and I coloured it with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. 


It was a shame about the card I will probably still use it and the present that goes with it can have a matching tag. 

If you pop back tomorrow the winners will be announced on the Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blog


I hope that you have a wonderful weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
