Sympathy Poppy and an award

I've been meaning to post this for a while, think it's safely arrived at the recipient now....

It was a while ago that I made this and I think I used a sketch from CPS, just need to check... yes cps 90 found here. This PTI stamp set is beautiful, I loved creating the floral image from different layers of ink! I cut one of the stamped poppies out and raised on 3d foam. The base card is finished with faux stitching, and the sentiment is Quickutz stamp that I've trimmed around!

Paper: BG - Boxer, MM - Naturals,
Nestabilities rectangles, butterfly punch,
Stamps: PTI -
Out on a limb - Messages, Remember, Quickutz frame,
Ink: Versamark, Colourbox Q's, Versafine black,
Other: Glossy accents, adhesive pearls, paper lace, 3D foam,

Also, I really need to say I have been honoured with another award. Thanks so much Clare go check out her blog now!

The rules of accepting this award are:-

You have to give it to 5 others and link to those people as well as who gave it to you.
Those 5 shall also pass it on to another 5 people.
Plus you have to write down 5 things you are addicted too.

I shall try and think of 5 addictions...

1. Paper, now you may think yeah we all are, but really I have a HUGE bookcase dedicated to paper, before crafting I drew a LOT and all the paper I had was blank, then I discovered Decorative delicious patterned paper there's NO stopping me, in the three years I have been card making I have accumulated thousands of sheets! (shame!)

2. Tea, you will no doubt always find me with a cuppa, normally mummy temperature cos there's always something to do!

3. Blurfing, I spend so much time looking at all the fantastic talent I forget the time and get a numb bum, then realise I haven't done half the stuff I planned to do, (my now fiance would say I like to BLOG)
4. Like Clare I'm addicted to buying craft mags. Every month I say to myself - that's it, no more. I already subscribe to three and never really make anything from them, I just love to look over them. Then the next month comes around and I end up buying every one in case it might have something nice in it! Would hate to miss anything! Must cost me a real fortune but I do keep them and reread when not blurfing.
5. I'm quite partial to jacobs crackers, It has to be JACOBS, with either cheese, peanut butter or just butter!

Nearly forgot to pass this award onto five other fabulous blogs... They have to be my New teams mates from the Basic Grey challenges, I realise there's eight of us but I also know that a few of you have already been awarded fabulousness so accept this with love!


Thanks for stopping by, HuGs Kim x

Gorgeous card Kim - I love poppies and you've coloured them and matched the paper beautifully.
I had this award from Lorraine, before Christmas, started it but never actually finished listing my addictions (too many lol), so I really thank you for this - it's great and you've spurred me on to finish and re-post it.
hugs Heather xx
