Poppies Thrinchie


Good Morning Ladies, 

Did you ladies get any snow?  We had a very light dusting, it was jolly cold though!  The girls took my to the GP Surgery and afterwards Sophie treated us to lunch in Fairford, it was lovely getting out of the house, even though I wasn't feeling a 100&, we then all chose a cake or Cookie pie as a treat!  

Todays Thrinchie theme is Poppies the background was one of the backgrounds i made a couple weeks ago, I added some more red to it in the form of Distress Oxide Candied Apple, the red circles were part of the background,  I added some background stamping in the same colour, then added a tiny bit of black ink. Next I used a tiny grass stamp from Aall&Create Papaver Poppies, to add detail along the bottom, I stamped the poppy and seed head abmnd added some colour using the candied apple DO with a waterbrush,  building up the colour as each layer dried, I added some tiny white dots to add brightness to the poppy,  then fussy cut and adhered to my Thrinchie, I then found a stamp that had P for poppy so I used that as I didn't have the word poppy,  luckily though I had the Theme on the panels that Karen made for me. I finished with some white splatters as usual. 

I hope everyone's appointments went well, mine was frustrating,  more antibiotics!!!

I hope that you all have a good day,

Love and hugs to all of you,

  5. Hello All, no snow but torrential rain.

    Sandra love your trinchie, the poppy stamp and colour are really lovely.
    I had a go, but found using such a small piece of paper, very difficult, must have another go , so used of using 9 -5 .

    Had an appointment to see the pharmacist again, all she wanted was to check my blood pressure,which luckily was a text book reading. They wanted to up my ramipril, but they only increase ed it a few weeks ago. So going to wait and see how it goes with this does.
    Karen hope the blood test went ok.
    Janet enjoy getting back to your usual treats.

    Sandra sorry to hear you are suffering again. Can they not speed up your appointment with the urologist.

    Big hugs to all, Lilian
