When I was really young - probably 8th grade - I visited an art museum in Madison as a school field trip.  On that trip I came across the most beautiful painting of red poppies and it was titled FLANDER'S FIELD.  To this day I remember that painting at this time of year - Memorial Day.  So I chose FRED SHE SAID'S Pre-colored poppies and made up 4 different cards - all 6x6.  This particular one has an enlarged cut out of a poppy pop dotted in the lower left corner and I used a sketch that I love.  I love to sew so chose to sew all 4 cards!  You can see all these poppies and more and even some for you to color at FRED SHE SAIDS STORE - just click there!!!

Your secret word on my blog is FRED.
Your next stop on the hop is PATTY'S blog.  
Winners will be selected on June 8th 2013 at 12:01 EST.
