Good morning all.

I think my senior moments are getting out of control...I sent hubby to the orthodontist with Lora yesterday after school when the appointment is quite clearly written in the diary for today...oops!!

I managed some more crafting yesterday, here is what I made.

I was mooching through all my digi stamps a few days ago and decided I wanted to colour up these poppies from Delicious Doodles. I have used the image once before but I left it uncoloured. Coloured with promarkers before being die cut. Dies all from Spellbinders; paper from Me to You; sentiment, lace, bow and charm from my stash.

I've spent some time trawling the net for promarker colour combinations as I always find it difficult to pick the right shades to blend...Letraset have a brilliant hints and tips section...why haven't I visited it before. I love how this image turned out :) I've decided to add the colours used to my posts so I have a record for future reference!

(Promarker colours used: Poppy, Crimson and Burgundy; Forest Green, Pine and Meadow Green)
