Poppy Birthday Card





This card is made with one of my new stacks of paper, I love every page, so you will be seeing a lot of splashy poppies on here. It's by Autumn Leaves and they had all sorts of yummy embellishments to go with it as well, how can you resist, especially when it's on sale. The sentiment stamp is an acrylic studio G. I don't quite know what the little tabs on the side are for, but it looks quite nice with the gems on there.

I am struggling with the time difference here, I feel wiped out at about 2pm, then full of energy at night, which makes no sense at all as the UK is five hours ahead, so I am merrily full of beans at 6am UK time. Since I don't sleep well normally, this is a double whammy for me. Those of you in the UK will be delighted to hear that it has been overcast and windy since we got to Florida, still nice and warm though.

  21. Great card Enfys. Love the poppies.

    Hope you start sleeping better, there is nothing worse then lack of sleep.
    We are doing no better here weather wise. It's been rain. rain, rain, and lots of strong cold wind. But I guess that's better then the dreaded SNOW. lol

    Happy Saturday
