Are you as glad as I am that Spring has finally arrived!? I am over joyed by the green grass, the leaves growing on the trees, the apple blossoms on our apple tree in our back yard and the beautiful flowers growing everywhere - even those pesky dandelions! I do NOT have a green thumb, so there are no pretty flowers growing in my yard, but I love seeing all the tulips, daffodils and other flowers popping up in the neighborhood. I do not have the time or patience to deal with trying to beautiful our yard with flowers, so I choose to show my love of flowers with paper, stamps and ink... lol!
This Sweet 'n Sassy Tulip image is one of my favorite floral stamp sets because spring = tulips and spring is my very favorite season of the year. I used the digital version of the image and paired it with a stamped sentiment from the Sweet 'n Sassy Praise the Lord stamp set. I created this card for a magazine call but it didn't get picked up, so I'm sharing it here with you today! I loved how it turned out and was disappointed it didn't make the cut, but that's the way it goes sometimes.
While you're here, let me point you to a brand new Sweet 'n Sassy digital stamp challenge blog!
