Poppy Power

What a super day we are experiencing in Surrey today.  I have been dog walking with only a T-shirt on.  Bare Arms!! Fancy that! Here comes the summer.
This card was made for Jenny over at  Hobby Art.  This is from the Poppy set which is a real joy to work with. I know the seed heads are not red but call it artistic license. Each flower was coloured in using a Promarker and then embossed with clear embossing powder to make them shine.
Where did the weekend go?
Friday saw me at the Houses of Parliament for a memorial service for a lovely girlfriend of mine who died aged 52. I was privileged to read a poem at the service.  Thankfully, it was at the beginning of the service, so I didn't get too nervous.  It was great to see my old friends and colleagues and it felt like yesterday that I used to go there to work every day.
Saturday we went to a pub in South Wimbledon to support a local band.  We always have a good night and the ladies dance.  Then Sunday we drove to Boreham Wood to have lunch with good friends.  So, a busy but good weekend.  So far today, I have walked four dogs in Limpsfield Chart and it'll be back to work later.  Have to make a card for my nephew though first.  I'm trying to think if I have anything suitable for a 30 year old. Best go check.  That's all for now.

  1. Wow Gill!! This is just stunning! Utterly gorgeous, I love your artistic license too! Jenny Mayes will be so proud of this! Sounds like you have had a fab weekend, well done for reading a poem at the service for your friend, I really admire anyone who can do that. Have to admit I couldn't do it, too shy and I'd cry all the way through.
    Bet the doggies all enjoyed their walks especially in such great weather! Alfie is a bit of a wimp in the rain, bless him!
    Take care
