Guest Designer on Ooh La La

I was very surprised and delighted when Anne from Ooh La La got in touched and asked me to be a Guest Designer on for November and December.

The theme of today's challenge 66 for the next fortnight is 'Remember, remember'. Please visit Ooh La La to see the lovely crafting of the regular Design Team - and it would be lovely if you could make something for the challenge.

As it's Remembrance Sunday in the UK on 14 November - the nearest Sunday to 11 November - I thought I would focus on poppies.

I've used papers and images from Ooh La La's Watercolour memories CD 'Poppy farm'. I've stamped with two PM poppy stamps and sentiment and coloured with Copics. I thought the 'thinking of you' tied in well with remembering someone at a time of special need. The spotted ribbon is Miss Elizabeth's.

I'm also linking this for the Craft Garden's November challenge where they have given this picture as inspiration:
