Blazing Poppies

Hi, hope you are well and keeping dry and warm.
Today was a busy day with two workshops, but so enjoyable...I do love crafty time with my friends. One of our crafters is in hospital and we all wish her all the best and a speedy recovery.
Another one of our gang has her Birthday today, .....any excuse for a party.
Today, we made this card with the lovely new Blazing Poppies stamp from IndigoBlu.

The main image was stamped with Memento ink and then coloured with ProMarkers. The smaller image is a mini Love Is stamp and was simply stamped in black ink. The background used a selection of background stamps and Distress Inks. Ribbon and a Memory Box die finish off the design.
Our second project after coffee and chocolate biscuits was to start and make a Paper and Card tag book.......
This is my idea of a way to keep information to hand .

A variety of tags are made from different materials. The front is decorated accordingly and information is written on the reverse...
For example one tag was made from Centura Peale card and stamped on the reverse with Distress ink.
It is a great way of recording what type of ink pads are used also...
This can be hung up in your craft room with more tags and ideas added.
Happy Crafting and see you soon,
Jo. X
