Lulu Loves Her Poppies

Hey guys, have you seen the new Lulu stamps from Stamping Bella available over at Quixotic Paperie? I instantly fell in love as soon as I saw them and being a little partial to poppy images I could not resist Lulu Loves Poppies.

She arrived on my doorstep yesterday - Thanks Elaine! - and I had to ink her up immediately so I've made a little ATC with her.


You might want to check out the other Lulus - so lovely!

Do you recognise the background? I've used the same sweet wrapper background I used for my poppy make tutorial. I've obviously strongly associated poppies to this background LOL! Funny how that can happen sometimes!

We are having a Potterthon this weekend watching all the Harry Potter films before going to see the last one. I've just finished re-reading all the books again as well. If you've seen the last film already don't tell me what happens! LOL!
