Poppy Fields ,red and green.

First of June and the sun is shinning, there is a bit of a cold wind blowing so that takes the edge of the enjoyment.
We heard very sad news today of a friend who has died young , in this 40's . He was a lovely family man and never complained , he had cancer and it spread to his brain. I have just spoke for about an hour to his sister and my son Sam who is good friends with their son went to the house with flowers.
I had a couple coming to view the house , I cried as I cleaned the house ready for inspection. They where a lovely young couple and I hope they buy it.
My card features an often used stamp "poppy fields " by Penny Black, one of my favourites.
I coloured the image in traditional colours of red and green with pro markers and added some stickles to the butterflies and poppy centers.
The red gingham paper is craft creation and the green spot paper is by do craft. The sentiment is from a lili of the valley pad. The shaped card is craftwork cards and I've inked in red chalk ink.

A gorgeous card Jane - sweet image and lovely design.
I hope that young couple buy your house. It's a very tense time. My daughter moved on Friday - it's the first time she'd gone through this process and I don't think she ever wants to again.
Sorry to hear about your friend. It's such a blow when you lose someone your own age.
