Poppies and flutterbies + a wonderful day

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well with you.
I had the most fabulous day yesterday.  Seven of us got together and had a fabbytastic crafting day hosted by our lovely friend Pauline, who is a wonderful cook.
We started off with the usual bacon butties then off we all went to Breedon on the Hill for some retail therapy, where I bought a few Marianne dies and a couple of Big & Juicky inkpads, then it was back to Pauline's for a cuppa and Indian/Mexican snacks before we started making cards. I managed to make two, which I will upload when I have taken their pics later. We had a wonderful pork and apple casserole for dinner followed by lemon meringue and/or strawberry and rhubarb steamed pudding and custard ( I had both LOL, as did most of us)
For the time being the poppies are will have to suffice :o)

I cannot believe that I haven't used my copics since August, I nearly forgot how LOL.
White linen card cut and folded to 7x5
Red pearlised card
Martha Stewart flutterby punches (two of them)
Memory Box corner die
Have a great day :o)
