Hello Classy friends,
Diane here with you today!
Spring is finally arriving and I am anxious
to get in my gardens, but until then
I can satisfy myself with some gorgeous handmade flowers!

I love this new die by PoppyStamps called 
Large Iceland Poppy.
It cuts in several pieces, allowing you to make a
lifelike poppy.
I cut the poppies from white card stock, 
then sponged them with PanPastels Flower Coloring Kit...
I think the PanPastels make them look so real!!

I slightly formed the petals using

The Poppies were "popped up" (pun
on Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance
These were  popped  using Joy! Large Foam pads
on a Spellbinders Oval Accent embossing folder.

The sentiment is one of my favorite go to stamp sets

and it could be YOU!!

Entering the following challenges:
PoppyStamps .... Spring Fever
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards ....Use A Die cut

Had to pop over and take a look at this beauty Diane and think this Poppy is one of my 'need' items.

Fingers crossed I am getting back into the swing of things and soon get caught up on my blogging and everything else come to that.

Hope you have a good weekend.
