I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies.

Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

We have been having Internet problems in my town it just kept dropping out, and you did not know when it was going to happen.
At first we thought it was just us till a engineer told us it was happening all over the town, and they were working on it.
Also not been too well hence my lack of posts.
I think it was the heat that got to me as I'm not good too good when it's too hot.

So this morning I had an idea for the Allsorts Challenge, and this is what I made.

The tag I cut out by hand out of a snippet of white card, and it measures 8"x4".
I sprayed my tag with Tattered Angels mica sprays in yellow, orange, and green.
Then I had drew the stems of the poppies.
The poppies were from a MCS CD, and I just added some red colour with a Sharpie pen and glued them on the stems.
I drew the grass with a green sharpie pen, and then cut my leaves out by hand from some snippets of green card, and glued them on too.
Finally I added some of Wendy's butterflies she makes, and some ribbon.
For the Butterfly Challenge I have used Ferrari Red, and flowers.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate each visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny, Hopefully you are feeling a bit better now the heat has dissipated somewhat.
I'm loving your tag, poppies are a huge favourite of mine, and this would be ideal for Remembrance Day too.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

What a beautiful tag Jenny. The vibrant colours are so summery and your hand drawn stems are perfect. I do hope you are feeling better. I have been feeling lousy. I don't sleep well in the heat and unfortunately get migraine as a result. It's been much cooler so that has helped!! xx

There are so many wows on this tag. Wow to hand cutting the shape at the top, to drawing that grass and drawing the leaves by hand. Also for those wonderful hand drawn stems. Poppies are gorgeous. Finally did you know that you could enter my current challenge with your poppy colour and butterflies? Hugs Mrs A.
