Good afternoon folks and welcome.
Today sees the start of a new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations. Here is the card I made using the sketch-
and here is the sketch -
As you can see I sort of played with the way the shapes overlap but so long as we can see the sketch you can do what you like, rotate, flip change the shapes, its up to you, but do explain if it is a bit off the wall!
I used the remaining uninked stamp from my Bloom Sketches set. I read on the wonderful Darnell's blog a couple of weeks ago that the poppies were in full bloom so perhaps they have been and gone over in California, the photos were certainly spectacular. I do love poppies but our's are more delicate and bloom on disturbed ground in the summer, a field washed red with these beauties is a site to behold. Perhaps I can persuade Shery to release some poppy stamps of the UK variety!
The poppies on this were coloured with Copics and the frame coloured to match, the 'thanks' was from the bold sentiments set. The background was embossed using a Spellbinders embossing folder.
As usual Shery is offering the following prizes:-
(voted by the design team)
prize: 2 stamp sets (3" by 5") if you use STAMPlorations stamps, 1 stamp set if you don't
+ guest designer spot in a Sketch Challenge
prize: 3 digi stamps
+ the option to be a guest designer too in a Sketch Challenge if you will use STAMPlorations digi stamp (to be provided )OR if you already have STAMPlorations clear stamps
All winners and top picks will receive a personalized guest designer badge that they can display on their blogs, as well as a STAMPlorations guest designer watermark.
Frequent Players Spotlight. Play in all 3 challenges for the month for entries to the random draw. Prize is always going to be a stamp and stencil pack valued at $10.

On the subject of spring here are a couple of lamb photos.
Number 84b has a splint on it's leg as it broke it just after birth. We think he got trampled on by another ewe. He is coping well and getting bigger.
Thanks for calling around.
I would like to join the fun over at-
