Two new cards.

This weeks challenge at Simon Says is a photograph inspiration challenge, the photograph is below and this is the card I made for the challenge.  This is a really simple card made by stamping the HA Long Stem Flowers onto some PP and then colouring with copics.  I then stamped the frame and cut out the image to fit.  Poppies are the perfect inspiration for tomorrow as it is rememberance day in the UK and we all wear poppies.

This second card is for a challenge Vicky is running over at her blog this week, I was inspired by the window card she created on Day 3 of the challenge.

I have had a really busy day today so I am off to watch some TV and chill out for the evening.
Have a great day.

Super take on those challenges Sally! I absolutely adore the framed poppies, so beautiful! And I love your Christmas card too, love the skew frame!

I love the first card - your colouring is incredible!
- so appropriate for us too, tomorrow. Never forget.
I know I have some of that fab Christmas paper with the gorgeous bird left from last year - I must go dig it out!

Your poppy card is totally stunning. Perfect, as you say, for remembrance day. Your Christmas card is also beautifully done.
