Terrific Tulips

Good morning friends.  Well winter is back in my neck of the woods after a very brief break, so it is definitely a great day to show some springtime flowers and color!  I love checking out Splitcoast Stampers on Pinterest for ideas and inspiration, and someone had posted a card with a really old SU! set called "Terrific Tulips".  I knew I had that stamp set somewhere, so off digging I went and success...I finally found it!  I had forgotten what a great set it was, and here's what I came up with....




Can't you hardly wait to see green grass, blue skies, and all God's beautiful creations springing up from the ground?!!!  Every spring I am in awe of  His masterful artistry...the colors just blow me away!! :0) 

I used SU!'s Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder, Melon Mambo, & Old Olive inks for the flowers, and Crumb Cake for the backgrounds (SU!'s "French Script" & "Pattern").  The sentiments are also SU!.  I finished each card off with bakers twine (LOVE that stuff!!).

Well I hope I've brought a smile to each of your faces today and hope for what is to come... No winter lasts forever.  No spring skips its turn. 

Well I'm off to get ready for a busy day today.  After almost 42 years at his job, my hubby is retiring this week and the guys he works with are giving him a celebration luncheon and also invited me.  This will definitely be the start of a different life...time will tell if we both survive it! :0)  Just kidding...I have my craft room, so all's good!!!! :0)  Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful Wednesday! :0)
