Poppies not weeds

Those leaves growing behind our year-round resident, Mr. Skele-a-gnome, beneath the tree in front of my house may look like weeds, but they’re not. They’re poppies and every year they bloom around late spring or early summer. Poppies are on my list of favorite flowers. When my husband and I first moved into our house 18 years ago, the previous homeowner admonished us that there would be poppies growing under the tree and not to pull them out because they look like weeds. Not knowing what they would look like, we let all the weeds grow under the tree and then determined which ones were the poppies. (Note: We had a busy toddler at the time and didn’t have the energy to look up the information.)

I was delighted when Stampin’ Up’s January-June 2020 Mini Catalog arrived covered in cards created with supplies from the Peaceful Poppies product suite. I recently created this card:
