March ATC Pretty Poppies Brightness

Yesterday was a crazy, crazy day… packed full of fun and friendship!  I started early… picking up my car from the service department at the local Honda dealer before 8am.  Then off to the beach, where I visited for a while with my friend Catherine.  By 9am, I picked up my friend Tee Thompson and off to Panera Bread Company we went for breakfast!1marchatctobemailedbrightcolorssharonfieldLOL, often our ‘breakfasts’ at Panera last for hours… but around 1030am the phone rang and it was our good friend Eva who was at a nearby surgical center with one of her DD’s.  So… we got a little snack for Eva and went off to meet and support her.2marchatcbrightfocalflowerimagessfieldBy 11am Eva’s DD was out of surgery, so I took Tee back to her house and left for a scheduled meeting with a new friend ‘Kina’ at her stamp room and store.  As we were wrapping up our visit… MY DD called and we agreed to meet for lunch at European Street Cafe (yum)!  3marchatcjolenesbeesharonfieldcbyuBy 230pm I was back home, and although I should have set down to stamp, Instead cut out several new stamp images including the one used in today’s March ATC from Chocolate Baroque Rubber Stamps!  Well, time flies when you’re admiring new stamps… right?  4marchatcsudahlianadjoelenebeesfieldIt seemed like just a few minutes before DH walked in from work at 5pm!!  LOL, so it was leftovers for dinner!  And… of course my apologies to Esther as I’ve ruined her morning cup of Joe once again;)5marchatcdarkenedbackgroundsfieldChocolate Baroque is a stamp company from the United Kingdom if I remember correctly what Kina told me… and they’re great for coloring with Copic Markers or re-inkers and blender pens. This one is called Pretty Poppies.

Today I’ve colored them using Copic markers to achieve very brightly colored floral images.  I’ve also added Bee accents from Jolene, Dahlia’s, rhinestones and polka dot brads from Stampin’ Up! and Signo White Gel Pen dots in the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I look forward to reading your comments!

Hi, Sharon - sounds like a full day! I am especially partial to Chocolate Baroque, though I've not purchased any of their images. To be honest, I am full of the "I wants" when visiting their web page, so I just don't get anything, but there are way too many beautifully unique images that are unlike anything else - so pretty. Your card looks fabulous! Love that image, too, BTW,hugs, de
