Sunday Snippets - those Field Poppies again

Evening Everyone,

Just a quick post for Di's Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 160 as I'm still supposed to be taking it easy ... but it's so difficult not to come out to play :) However, I will keep it brief and hope you won't mind.The two cards I have to share were made long before Christmas but I was so busy I never did find time to post them then.
This card used up some Gelli plate print I had leftover, scraps of silver mirror card and a snippet of pink card for matting and layering.
The poppies on card this were stamped on to scraps of white card, using various shades of blue and green watercolour paint - just experimenting with colour really - and then matted on to snippets of aqua cardstock.

And that's it for this evening. I'll do my best to take a peek at all your snippet makes over the week but apologise in advance if I don't get round you all ... it's 'baby steps' for me at the moment.

Hope you have all had an enjoyable weekend and that the coming week is a good one.

Happy Crafting,

Hello Elizabeth. Nice to see you back posting. Your cards a 're beautiful and I do love the pretty colours. Hope you are not over doing things. I only had the virus and I'm still pretty week if I do to much. Take Care. Hope to see you in the spring. Hugs Rita xxx

Good to see you back with us, even if you are taking things easily for a while. I love your poppies and it looks as though you are having fun playing with media too. Thank you for your visit today. You are right. I am on a roll, but I have so many ideas flying round in my brain, my hands cannot keep up at the moment. I keep seeing something else I want to try. I always said I have a butterfly mind, but it's fun, so I shall not worry. Take care and make the time to recover fully. xx Maggie

Hugs and keep warm.

Two beautiful cards! I really like the poppy stamps you used and the gorgeous water colours! So glad you're feeling a bit better and are out of hospital - sounds like you had a very bad case and I hope you continue to get better.

Gorgeous cards Elizabeth, and so glad you're home & crafting again :-)
I only had the flu over Xmas & I'm still weak & wimpy, so please take it easy and let yourself recover fully! Enjoy the chance to take things slowly & maybe some extra creative time

I'm so sorry you've been dealing with pneumonia, but glad to see you posting cards again! The pink card colors are smashing and so beautiful with the silver, and the water-colored flowers look so very delicate and beautiful on aqua! Do take care and continue on your way to a complete recovery! Get well (hugs)

Such pretty flowers! Such an ugly illness you had to deal with. Definitely don't over do it as you don't want a relapse. Good to see you in the playground. We'll just sit quietly and brush our dollies' hair.
