Less is More - Red and Orange

This week Mandi and Chrissie have challenged us to use the colours Red and Orange over on Less is More. So this morning - trying to ignore the gloomy weather outside I made a card using my faithful Poppy stamp.


I coloured the flowers in using Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait Stampin' Write markers and then did some sponging with a little Tangerine Tango. The sentiment is from the retired set Bird on a Branch.
I had a friend helping me this morning - Louis my cat decided to join me but spent most of his time on the window sill watching the birds on the bird table. He also got very excited when he spied a squirrel running down the path


You can't see it in this picture but he was muttering very angrily at that squirrel! - bye for now - Jacqueline xx
