New Poppy Stamps


I didn't intend to buy any more poppy stamps, especially because I've been enjoying freestyle watercolouring poppies lately.  I blame it on Monika ;)  We met up at the HSNW show at Port Sunlight on Saturday, and were comparing purchases, and she'd bought the Clearly Besotted set.  And you know what it's like, somebody buys something, then you need it.

It's a three part image, and I'm betting when it goes on sale on the Clearly Besotted blog tonight, it will be the first set to sell out.

I'm entering this into AAA Cards - Watercolour


and Muse, where the inspiration this week comes from Kimberly:


Gotta go, Downton's coming on soon :)
