Blue Poppy

Hello again everyone!
Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.

Here is a quick Sympathy card that I made. Unfortunately needs must sometimes even though they are not our most popular type of card to make.

I went with the ever popular Memory Box Poppy die and great deliberation on the colour. Should I use black as it was going to a male recipient?  or red? the end I plumped for a subdued shade of blue...a little less harsh but not girlie.

I used the negative of the die on a linen card and layered on the blue background and kept it as flat as possible but felt it needed the pearls just to finish it . The sentiment was from stash.. I thought I would have loads of 'Thinking of you' sentiments but when it came to it...a choice of two! Bit like never having that right colour know what I mean.

Thank you for all the lovely comments you leave me, I love to read them all and I value your virtual friendship so much, and the time you take in your busy schedules to stop by my blog and read my ramblings.

Have a great weekend all of you...fingers crossed that the weather will stay bright and if you are in the UK ...enjoy the extra hour ...YES don't forget to put your clocks back.

Till next time
Crafty hugs and Happy Halloween to all who celebrate it...stay safe!

More robins

Hi friends!

More robins today, once again up-cycled images that fitted my die perfectly.... and a boo boo (not the Halloween type).

Can you see the deliberate (not ) mistake? As it's an old wooden stamp so I was unable to use my stamping platform and it wobbled...but looks like a shadow don't you think? Who knows it may one day be a rarity ( sure is already!) know like postage stamps or coins with a flaw in them. If the royal mint can get away with can I!

I have lots to do today so excuse me if I dash. Thank you for popping by, I love your visits they make my day.
See you again soon.
Crafty hugs.

Re-cycled Robins!

Hello friends and followers!
I hope this post finds you all well and if not I hope you feel tons better soon!

I've been re-cycling or up-cycling (not sure I know the difference) and this post is a bit photo heavy so you might want to make a cuppa (good excuse for one anyway).  These robins were all on a card together (from last year.).   shhhhh don't tell is what I did with them.......

and close up to see the detail..

They fit my die perfectly. I used linen effect card form my stash and the sentiment is a
wooden one from my stash...oldie but goody! Feeling quite chuffed having re-cycled and used up a bit of stash too!

So I haven't been idle!  First Christmas cards this year.

Are you still with me?...wakey wakey...your cuppa is going
OK I'll head off now and wish you all a lovely weekend.
Catch up again soon
