Poppies for a friend.


































Just a quick post today, my DD has just moved back home again after completing her Teacher training course, so we have lots of unpacking to do!!  Also I am addicted to the Olympics at the moment and its so exciting that its at home,   unfortunately we were not lucky enough to get any tickets, but on Wednesday we are hoping to go to the mens cycling time trials. They take place not far from here and we would be able to stand at the side of the road to cheer the men on.

Just one quick card to show today, my best friend Gina who I have known for over forty years celebrates her birthday tomorrow so I had to make a special card.  Her favourite flowers are poppies so I know she will love this card.  I am adding this card to the Simon Says challenge which this week is "Anything Goes"

You never cease to amaze me when you use this Poppy stamp Sally! It's beautiful. You must be happy to have your daughter home. Does she now have to start looking for work? Is she hoping to find something close to where you live? Hugs, Brenda

Oh my, Sally - this is beautiful! I love the softness of the background and the glossy poppies :) What a perfect butterfly to go with them! We are keeping up with the Olympics too :)

How lovely to have your daughter back home to stay for a bit! I know I was addicted to watching the Olympics when they were in Canada - something about seeing peeks of your own spot in the world makes it MUST WATCH material :)
I love this gorgeous card - the partial label for the sentiment is so clever, and I love the pattern on the butterfly!

Such a special card for your special friend! I love the gloss on the poppies. It must be exciting to have your daughter home. We were excited when our daughter came home for a week's visit! Enjoy the Olympics!
