Poppy Friday!

Hello and thanks for popping in! After a couple of recent trips to Buffalo Stamps and Stuff I fell in love with these little Poppy Stamps! I got a couple, but then had to order to doggy online. I used copics to color my little duo here and used some great Cosmo Cricket paper from Garden Variety and some October Afternoon from Fly a Kite. I stitched like crazy in red thread and used my typical bow and button to finish it off. Just a fun card, IMO!
We have had some gorgeous spring weather here in Western New York for the last couple of weeks. The sky is clear and blue and the air is so clean. Green is emerging everywhere you look. Wonderful spring shades of green! I would give anything to sit and drink my coffee on the back deck instead of going to work! Here is what I see from my deck-one of my gardens.
We have some funky grass out back that is still brown, but once it's green it stays green into November no matter if we have a lack of rain in the summer.
Well, thanks for visiting me and our backyard today! I appreciate it so much! Will get back to our beloved Tildas this weekend!
Have a great day! Cheryl
I used E30, E31 and E25 for the dog
R24, 29 and 59 for the reds
BG11, BG13 and BG18 for the blue
E000, E11 and R20 for the skin.

One should be so lucky to look out at such a beautiful garden. I would have a hard time going to work also. I am sure your garden must keep you busy for many hours. Not to say you don't spend enough time on your cards. This Poppy card is very cute. Where do you find the time in addition to working?
