A Poppy for Friday Oldie!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and keeping cosy, boy is it getting colder or what! We still haven't got snow at ground level, but it's cold enough for it.

Well it's Friday and time to join Erika with sharing an Oldie. This can be anything Handmade from an earlier time of your crafting career, albeit my share are getting closer and closer to my present makes.  This is just for fun, and there are quite a few of joining in, here is what I've rummaged around to find;
This is a lovely digital stamp drawing by Jane, from Janey's Cards. Now Jane is a gardener and her drawings are inspired by her love and work with flowers. Unfortunately she now longer has her digital shop.  As you can see it's a pretty poppy, appropriate for today, although not planned.
I wear a white poppy for Peace  to remember all who have been killed in all wars, military, civilians, animals. I would dearly love if lessons could be learned from the needless wars fought, but it would seem that governments aren't capable of that and greed will always prevail over human suffering.  Just to say that I do respect, the fallen military personnel, I wouldn't want to offend anyone. 

Thank you so much for the kind comments on my last card, you are all so kind.
Off to see to the dinner, it's going to be a pot luck night I think, sometimes they turn out to be very tasty, I must get food shopping, it's only Teallach who has a full cupboard at the moment.

Have a good evening and a great weekend, hope you have something good planned, see you soon,

Hi Kate,
brilliant Oldie today.
Great colour and design.
I remember some cards made with that gorgeous poppy, and itsn't it sad that she no longer has her digital shop as her work is excellent.
Have a very lovely weekend.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

A lovely image and card, very appropriate for today too. I haven't heard of this artist and her shop, shame it is no longer open though.
We've had a yummy shepherds pie for dinner today, hope your meal turned out tasty too.

Hi Kate and thank you for joining me with an oldie this weekend. Your poppy is so appropriate for this weekend and a beautiful blue and white combo.
Hope you are having a good weekend and hubby is safely back home after his trip to the Cairngorms.

Hi Kate
I'm sure I remember you doing a poppy card around the time you went to Iceland (the country rather than the frozen food store lol!).
Beautiful poppy and beautiful card.Don't remember seeing anything about a white poppy before but its a lovely idea.
Best wishes.
