P is for Poppies or Pumpkins

Hello, I hope you are well, thanks for the visit.
Today we start a new challenge at Alphabet Challenges 
For the letter P - I chose Poppies or Pumpkins
 I have been poorly this week, there are
some wonderful creations by the design team, 
but to give you a little more inspiration I have 
resurected two projects I made way back, they
haven't been seen for many a year.  
I really like these pop - up box cards. If you fancy
having a go, dcheck out You Tube or Pinterest.
Papers from my stash, stamps are varied from
Inkadinkado and Tandastamps.

For the poppies, I would like to share a photo of this
Ikea mirror, which I painted with blackboard paint.
I stamped the Poppies and the lettering with Elusive Images 
(now Chocolate Baroque). The buterfly is by Lyndsay Mason.
I used  TH Distress Inks to watercolour the images, which
were fussy cut and glued onto the board. 
Set off with small red pearls.

Something Beginning with 'S'

so much better, the last three days have been poorly days.
The worst is now over and I can again enjoy and partake in

I have chosen the theme - #108 Something Beginning with 'S'

take a look at the DT inspirational creations. 
For my card, I have made a Square card, not unusual for
 me, but I also have made a Square frame.
The background is a beautiful Scene, coloured with
Promarkers, with lots of glitter added. The stamp is by
Sheena, as is the Stag which has been added with
dimensional stickers.  The stamp set is - Scenic Winter. 
The Snowflakes are from a Dreamees stamp set.
