Birthday Hugs

Good morning

Well, my Copics finally came and I've been playing around with them ... Actually I went for the B set Copic Ciao markers - I figured they were a little cheaper and neither are going to make me a brilliant artist but I can practice.
I have a card to share that I made for a friend's birthday... her wedding anniversary is on the same day and I'll share that card with you later in the week

I used the poppy stamp from Technique Tuesday


I stamped and embossed in black before colouring the poppies and I'm so pleased at how they turned out - My friend Pat is going to love playing with my new toys


I cut some leaves from vellum and coloured them too 


I'm thinking I may even make another card for my friend and keep this Lol!

I hope your having a good start to the week and it's a good day for you

Thanks for looking in, till soon
