More Poppies

Hello...
I hope you had a good weekend 

My thoughts go out to all those affected by the mindless violence both in France and Tunisia this past week ... The terrible shootings in Tunisia happened in a place my husband and I stayed at a few years ago... It's really hard to comprehend what is going on in this world

Crafting takes me away from all that and I have another poppy card to share that I made for a friend's birthday ... we met at high school and more that 50 years on we are still friends


The poppies (Altenew) are painted with distress stains and the little jar (Clearly Besotted) is cut from Vellum



My new bathroom is finally finished and my ear infection is a lot better... I now have projects to prepare for Thursday club and next week my sweet aunt is coming to stay ... I'm  so looking forward to that ...

I'll be back tomorrow for the City Crafter Challenge - Till then, be safe and thanks for your visit
