You may laugh at my rather pathetic attempt, I have thick skin LOL
This card has been created for Brenda's 4th Bloggaversary and in celebration of almost 4000 followers.
Here is me getting excited at reaching 8 ROFL.
We were to create something based on our take of Brenda's blog.
It was a no brainer for me to use the header as inspiration. Particularly the Poppies.
When I was younger my mother left my father and we moved to live with my Nan and Grandad.
They lived in a small place called Tidworth and the one thing I always remember are the Poppy fields.
On the way to school we had to pass several of them and they were absolutely beautiful in full flower.
My attempt at them have been made using tissue paper.
Not to shabby if I do say so myself even though it took me over four hours to complete the card LOL
Beads in the center. Grass and sky courtesy of my art student son who kindly lent me his pastels.
I have added 3 paper buttons down the side as my Nan was also an avid button collector.
Made the bows myself using some red 3mm ribbon. Talk about tricky.
Checkered paper is a magazine freebie. Used a stencil for the shape :)
Sadly my grandparents are no longer alive but creating this card has bought back some wonderful memories.
Thank you Brenda *smiles*
Your blog for me has got to epitomise (sp?) one thing and that is Happy Memories.
I can't wait to browse your site more indepth and feel I may become a stalker ;)
