LIM week 9 - A touch of red

Now you probably know I like poppies (big clue on my blog!) and I did think about doing a poppy for this weeks Less is More challenge. Instead I went with SU Greenhouse Garden stamp set. I haven't used the solid flower, I've just used the two of the filler stamps. I used SU rose red and then added a hint of green. I got this sentiment stamp for a £1 when I went to The Range, never usually find anything in those stamp bins but am pleased with this as I didn't have a stamp with this sentiment.
Sorry I won't be able to comment on many entries this week as I am on a course, in fact I need to do the pre reading some time today.
Right off to watch Barbara Gray!
