Poppies Galore.

Meant to post this earlier but hands have been too cold to do much typing. New challenge is up and running over on the Butterfly Blog. Poppies with lots of panels on your card and here are the cards that I have   made for inspiration.  

I used A Woodware stamp ' Poppy ADS506' just repositioning the stamps to where I wanted them to be.  coloured using my Promarkers and a gold gel pen. The sentiment is part of the stamp set. Butterflies are SU's  'Beautiful Wings' Die Set. So glad I purchased them when I did as they are no longer available. The dark green panels are coloured acetate sheets and the pale green is shimmer cardstock

This next card is a Digi image by Stitchy Bear Designs (a name from the past) called Poppy Black Work. The butterfly is from  a sheet of butterflies that originally were freebies in a magazine.I have had them a really long time!! The sentiment was a pre printed one.

Last card is another digi this time by Delicious Doodles (not sure if they are still going or not) called 'Poppy Butterfly'. Coloured with my trusty Promarkers. Sentiment is a stamp by Woodware and I used up the off cuts from the previous cards for the panels. I am on a mission to use everything up as it saves me having to put it all away again. 

The challenge is running until Tuesday 21st November.

 The stye under my right eye is still lingering on. Two people this week have told me of the old Wives Tale of rubbing over the rim of the eyelid with a gold ring. Has anyone else heard of this and does it work? I would be interested to hear.
