Wild Poppies

Evening Everyone
Well I survived, and so did they.
I did have a little person creep into my room at 4am. It was like sleeping with a starfish in the bed she stretched all of her limbs out in all directions, quite a squash in a single bed lol.
I haven't managed to get anything creative done today. To be honest I have had a truly lazy day, although I think I have earned it don't you?
I did manage to get something made yesterday before everyone arrived home.
This was made to enter into this months challenge over at Clarity where they are looking for 'In the Garden'.
I have used the fabulous Poppies in Bloom and a little paper piecing using background papers from my stash.
I cut the image out using a Nestie and added some Antique Linen Distress ink while the die was still in place.
I also used Wild Poppies and Antique Linen ink around the edges of the panel and the background paper.
I have given the Poppies some dimension by attaching them using silicon.
I would also like to enter this into the Monthly challenge over at Forever Friends where they want Paper Piecing.
Back to normal tomorrow, if work can be considered normal that is.
Off to bed now, although I have to listen out for the Big Kids returning since they didn't take their keys with them.
