Live Love Laugh Dance Poppies

Oh my goodness, I love these poppies! I coloured them in with my Touch markers (much like Copics), but I was a bit stressed using my scissors to cut them out!   Pretty delicate cuts, but I was successful in not cutting off any stems, so it's all good! lol :)

Here's an angle to show you the dimension of the layers.

If you have some time, you should pop on over to Marjie's Malarkies to see some of her gorgeous colouring pages.  I love poppies and fell in love with this image, so I had to play with it.   You can find the poppies here as a free download.

I've also always loved the quote that's on my card, but I don't own a stamp with this quote.  So, today I decided to create it myself using different fonts and a "Love floral heart" digi image that I just found over on AiFactory Digital Resources and Illustrations.   You can find the floral heart image here as a free download, as well. 

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Great job on the cutting. Love your saying as well. I should try typing up sentiments. I've never tried downloading digis. Guess I should give it a try.

Enjoy your week-end.
