Poppies - CCC - July 2020

Good morning and Happy Sunday! I hope you all are doing well. My heart goes out to those in Southwest Texas this weekend dealing with Hurricane Hanna. Prayers that they will all stay safe and not sustain too much damage. We here in H Town know all too well how that goes.

It's been a busy week here. The last week of the semester. I was very happy (ELATED) to learn yesterday that my British Isles research project got the highest grade in the class 69 points out of a total of 70. WOO HOO! I never thought it would turn out that well. I received an A in the class. I haven't yet gotten my grade for my final essay in my Writings & Reasonings class, but I have a 95+% average so it won't affect my grade much. I am anxious to read what she thought of my essay. It was titled The Crazy Cat Lady.

On to the issue at hand. Here is my card for the SCS Creative Card Chicks Monthly Challenge. Each month one of the members sends out a card kit to the rest of the group and we each make at least one card out of the images and other embellishments sent to us. This month our hostess was Debby. Since the image was simple I tried to keep my card design simple also. I must admit that I did add a little sparkle to it.
Materials Used:
  • Image - Deadbeat Designs - Poppy
  • Sentiment - From one of my Cardmaker magazines
  • Ink - Memento Chocolate Brown; Tuxedo Black
  • Cardstock - SU - Crumb Cake
  • Designer Paper - Paper Studios
  • Accessories - Twine - Debby's stash; Paper Studios - enamel dots; SU dimensionals; Stampendous FranTage Golden Sand EP; Rose ultra fine glitter
  • Copic Markers - G21, G24; R05, R17, R27
That's it for now. I hope to have more time with the summer school break to play with my toys, but I am also doing some cleaning up and cleaning out of my garage and my craft room. I've already found stuff that I forgot I had. I need to figure out a way to store things so that I will still have them handy to use when needed.


  1. We all have stuff we forget about! The trouble is , we all have so much, we can’t keep it all handy! Beautiful card , Maggie! Love the added sparkle.

  2. Congratulations on your grades! That is great! Your card is gorgeous!


  3. Wow, this is really beautiful, Maggie! And congratulations on your excellent grade! I'm betting your essay was great, too. You must be close to finishing school. Good luck with the studies coming up!
