Pretty Poppies ...

I've had a hectic weekend with lots of driving including a traffic jam that added two hours to my journey - I was merely trying to get from Oxfordshire to Lincolnshire on a Friday evening!  I was visiting my parents so no time for crafting but lots of time for discussing ideas with my mum (an avid card maker) and craft supply buying, always fun!

I did get back earlier enough to have a little dabble with a new stamp set and  some water colour paints - not the most exciting card I've ever made but it satisfied my need to create something before the weekend was over!

Simple layout created with the following:

Versafine - Smokey Gray
IndigoBlu Stamp Set - "Live Laugh Love"
Windsor and Newton Watercolour paints.

I am entering the following challenges:-

"Less is More" - One Layer Card and Off the Edge
Inkspirational - Clean and Simple
