A Birthday Card and my Tower of London Poppy

Hi there. I've spent a lovely morning with my friend Connie at the Ripley Castle Christmas Fair. So many lovely things for sale - I could have spent a fortune..............if I had one!

This card follows on from the previous post. It uses the same printed background paper, only this time I've added a simple scene to it.

I hope my father-in-law liked it - I always struggle with ideas for men's cards. That reminds me, I need to make one for Hubby's birthday next week.

I also mentioned on my previous post that my poppy was out for delivery.

Well it arrived. It is lovely and I really like the design of the packaging. There's even a bit of mud left on the poppy which I think I'll leave where it is. It came with the original stick (it's lovely and weathered too) so you can plant it like it was in the installation but I think I want to use mine like it is, as an ornament.

This means it needs a middle but luckily I have the perfect solution - an old poppy.


I hope you have a lovely weekend. Don't forget that Barbara Gray from Claritystamp is on Create and Craft TV at 9am on Sunday (7th Dec). As always, there are some fab new stamps. I look forward to seeing what everyone else has made with them. I had an awesome time with mine!
