Poppies!

This card took a whole hour! Honestly! I spent 45 minutes of that scratching my head. Clean and simple is the challenge at Stampotique this week. This is as clean and simple as I can be. It was inspired by the Poppies in my garden this morning...... well, sort of!



This is my 23 week old Poppy pup with some wonderful magenta Poppies. They got there totally by accident last year when I was harvesting poppy seeds and dropped a box full of seed heads, but hey, these are lovely so it was definitely a happy accident.


Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog, enjoy your day, Sam xxx
