Poppies and Bears - from Little Claire

Evening - 1 work day down 4 more to go........exciting afternoon with a visitor in school "from the Amazon Rainforest!"  We had land snails, hissing cockroaches - learnt so much about these guys.....nope still don't like them much:(  A python, tarantula and a skunk.....Rosie the skunk was my favourite she is so sweet - honestly.  The opportunities for youngsters today in their learning is brilliant........hopefully will generate amazing work from everyone......took great pics too....

Onto a couple of shares today using 2 new stamps from Little Claire:

Our garden is blessed with yellow and orange poppies every year and so I chose to colour the poppy stamped image in these tones.  I have also added a Memory Box die, tiny ladybirds that have been in my crafty stash for years, coloured the adhesive pearls with promarkers to match.  I have also coloured a little organza ribbon with promarkers for additional interest.  Backing papers are from Craft Creations also available through Little Claire.
The second stamp is the cutie teddy bears:
Not such a good picture - sorry!  The bears are coloured in toning lilac shades.  The deep punch used is from Martha Stewart.  Little sentiment tag also from Little Claire as is the lilac backing paper.  Mounted onto a Nestabilities Die and some dotty organza ribbon and adhesive tiny black pearls added for interest.
A couple more makes to share later in the back to sifting through all the pics taken this afternoon...................................xxGaynor
