I Do Like This :)

Hi peeps and hope you are all having a fab day.

It’s the middle of the week and time for a swim across the pond to see what’s been a- happening in the jolly old US of A with the
Simon Says Stamp Challenge girls.

This week we have the most gorgeous piccie for inspiration ….

… I LOVE poppies.
I love them for their colour – I am always drawn to red -  and also for what they have come to symbolise.

And we also have a whopper of a prize – this fab voucher …

…. which  our winner can spend ….

….. right here.

So what did I do?

I used the colours from the pic for inspiration and made another Chrimbly card and I am really quite pleased with how it turned out.

I’ll do the same as I did yesterday and do the shopping list at the end.

More rolled flowers – I seem to be addicted to making them lol!!! 
I found the moss green card that I cut the leaves out of in the depths of the craft stash and it has a pearly finish to it. I don’t know where it came from but I quite like it!!
