Hello Everyone, I'm late tonight, been a busy day.  I hope you are all well and have had a lovely day.

Lots of wind today...outside that is. Great for getting the washing dry of course, but I don't like being out in it, but apparently we have to have gales over the next few days.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last card, much appreciated.

So just a short post tonight rather tired and going t have a fairly early night, just started a new book and I'm gripped already. Here's my card;
Hobby Art Poppy stamp and coloured with SN colourblend pencils, SB dies and an Sara Davis Embossing folder, is her last name Davis, gosh can't remember and can't be bothered to go and rake out the folder, but you'll know the lass I mean, Crafters Companion owner. A bit of colour on the embossing and around the dies. I've used Liquid Pearls, but they haven't gone into a pearl, which is a bit of a pain, added a little bird cos I could. 

That's it then, off to the Land of Nod and leaving Alistair to the Xfiles, I could never understand them anyway, cheerio for now and see you soon,

Beautiful card Kate, I do love poppies. It can't make its mind up about the weather here. Today we have had rain, then blue skies and quite warm now the clouds have rolled in and looks like rain again. It is windy but I gather not as windy where you are.

Beautiful Poppies and awesome job coloring them up. The addition of the little bird is sweet. Lovely card, Kate.

A lovely image, and your shading with these SN pencils is wonderful. Love the little whimsy with the bird, and also a perfect S/B shape to show off the pretty image. Love the staggered corner-point matting, and the edge coloring enhances the colors of the image too. That's one gorgeous embossing folder. Hope you're enjoying the newest read. TFS & Hugs (and you & Mr. A can porch sit with us anytime!)

Oh I used to watch the X files all the time, haven't seen it in a long while now.

Loving your poppy card, great colour and layering. The embossed background really sets of the feature too.

Have a good day, stay warm and dry.

Hugs Erika. x
