Guess what?!  It's Friday.  YAY!  And, I actually did stamp sumpin'!   Looky!


Fabulously contemporary, I present to you:  Modern Poppy

I'm smitten.  Positively smitten.  I have two amuse-bouche today–this one here, and another featuring the Solid Zinnia over at the A Muse News Blog–these are just a taste of what's to come in the Love Blooms release! GAAAAAW-JUS!!!

What's an amuse bouche?  Heather explains it delightfully!

I had some scraps of paper I just couldn't toss away, so I pieced 'em together on a Buttercup note card.

There's no rhyme or reason to this color scheme–only that it seemed cheerful and made me happy–polka dots make me happy. *grin*


I thought it would be fun to stamp "hi friend" along the stem, just for something different, UKWIM?!  And, I like how it turned out!  Martha Stewart Black Onyx glitter gives the stamens in the center some chic sparkle.

This is just an appetizer, to get your creative juices salivating before the main course gets served up next week!  Be sure to hop the Muses' blogs–they're dishin' up amuse-bouche for your viewing pleasure!

  Bon appetit!
