Poppy Birthday


I’m ready for something cheerful after a few snowy cloudy days, how about you?  After I finished my “chores” today I sat down to play a little with the Mojo Monday sketch and some Verve.  This set is called Poppy Birthday and I really love the sketchy doodly feel to the blossoms.  I also really love orange and fuchsia together for some bright cheerfulness so that’s where all this went.    The blossoms are stamped and coloured with Copics (see below for colours), and then cut out.  I created a circular frame with a TCP Cut Ups die and then plugged it all into the sketch with some random designer paper I had in my stash.  



I’ve looped some baker’s twine behind the flowers and stamped the background in Memento ink.  

Well, my last couple of weeks have caught up with me.  I’ve had a cold for a week, my daughter had the stomach flu yesterday, my husband has been gone for 8 days (coming home today!), and that’s left me as one tired girl.  I’m headed for a nap!  Hopefully this has cheered you up today!  


Thanks for dropping by!
