Color Hues #9 - Poppies


Second day of the year, second card! It won't continue like this as I do need to return to work next week, but for now I'm enjoying a little crafting time. I'm joining in the Color Hues Challenge where we are challenged to use red and grey. I've created a simple one-layer card.

I used Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies (images) and Queen Anne's Lace (sentiment). I hand drew the stems. Colours are SU Poppy Parade and Smokey Slate.

I'm thinking of heading off to the movies today to see The Dry. I loved the book and am looking forward to the movie. I'm currently reading Jane Harper's most recent novel, The Survivors. I love how all of her books take you to a specific Australian landscape/community, I always immerse myself and get tempted to adventure to the region described. My adventuring is limited to Queensland at the moment, with state borders opening and closing at a moment's notice, depending on COVID-19 outbreaks it's not worth risking getting stuck somewhere and having to quarantine for two weeks when I get home. Luckily, Queensland is the best place on Earth! 

Thank-you for visiting!
