Tiptoe Through The Tulips ;o)

Wouldn't you just know it! I have all the time in the world to make cards, but I had absolutely no inspiration this past week :o( Had to alter a toilet roll for the new challenge over on Double Dutch, and that turned out okay, but after that...zilch! Yesterday I went shopping with the gift certificates I got from my colleagues at my leaving dinner, and I picked up some Magnolia stamps and some delicious paper, and voila, a card is born :D! Let's hope this is the end of the drought ;o)



This is Tanya with Tulips, who moved to a new house with her family last month. The house has a wonderful garden, filled with the most beautiful flowers you can imagine, in every colour of the rainbow :D. Unfortunately for those flowers, they weren't tulips... I say weren't, because one night, when her family was asleep, Tanya dug up all the flowers in the garden and threw them over the fence into the neighbours' garden (why let them go to waste, right ;o)) and planted hundreds and hundreds of tulip bulbs! Her parents were maaaaaad when they got up in the morning, but now that the tulips are blooming they can forgive Tanya her deed, as their garden is beautiful once more ;o) According to Tanya, if it ain't a tulip, it ain't a proper flower...she must have some Dutch ancestors ;o).


Ingredients used:
Magnolia stamps, Whiff of Joy sentiment, MME paper, Joy! Crafts pearls, Prima flowers, spacer, brad

CC Designs stamps, Chatterbox paper, Papertrey Ink ribbon, pins, charm, QuicKutz label die


That's all from me for now, hope I can show you some more stuff next week! Thanks for stopping by and have a good one!
