The Poppy is the symbol of Morpheus; the Greek god of dreams, uncanny then that it has narcotic properties. If you have ever seen a poppy in its process of growth, you've observed just before blooming, the bud hangs its head - heavy with the promise of blossom. In fact, the cocooned bud seems to droop in somnolence, as if enchanted with floral dreams.
Poppies come in many colours but it is the Red flower that is electric and aflame with vitality
It's not just any red, but a staggering, shockingly vibrant red.
I have tried to relate this ebullience on my card.
My bow is made from twine with a wooden button attached.
I stamped the Poppy twice and coloured up with watercolours, then fussy cut the centre petal of the second one and 3d it with a pop up square.

Also the good news is that Rob returns to work tomorrow he is feeling great. I survived the month he has been home, I will be pleased to return to my crafting without interruptions every 20mins!
Have a great week,
