Good morning all.

Housework and laundry all done yesterday so today I get to play :)

A quick make last night as I was itching to use one of my new sets of stamps from Clearly Besotted....Brushed Poppies.

Decided to make a sympathy card for the box. I stamped using Archival inks and mounted onto the base card with foam tape. It did take me a wee while to work out what I was supposed to do with the stamps lol but I'm quite pleased how this turned out.
