Poppy Field!

Good Evening to You, I hope all is going well with you and that you've had a lovely day.
The weather once again up here was cracking, warm and sunny, can hardly believe it's October.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my underwater themed canvas, you've been very kind.

Alistair and I went to the theatre last night to see The Broons. Now all the Scottish Bloggers will certainly know this very Scottish family to be found in the fun pages of the Sunday Post along with Oor Willie. There is a play doing the rounds and it's well worth going to see if it comes near you, well it is if you're a Broons fan. Joyce Falconer who used to be in River City plays Maw Broon and Paw Broon is played by Paul Riley who plays Winston in Still Game, which is returning to TV tomorrow. Now sorry if all you lovely Englandshire folk haven't a clue what I'm talking about, but it is very funny Scottish comedy.  Anyway, the play had a bit of Scottish music and the audience had a good old singalong.Great way to spend a Wednesday night.

So on to my card;
Another lovely stamp from Hobby Art called Poppy Field and coloured with Colourblend Pencils, First Edition Papers and SB die to mat the image on to, a few pearls and a dragonfly gem. Hobby Art stamps are wonderful to colour.

That's me for now, see you soon, take care of yourselves,

Evening Kate, I was interested to read about your tip out last night. Pleased to hear you had a good time. My hubby is very keen on the Broons and has bought several of the annuals which he often reads in bed at night!

Your card is very pretty. The stamp is lovely and the papers very pretty. Barbxx

Hi Kate
Finally catching up with my visits.
What a gorgeous stamp and so beautifully coloured.
I'm guessing "Broon" is Brown in Scottish lol? If its anything like the Irish Browns I can imagine its hilarious.
