Love is Kindness (and a bunch of tulips!) by Stampin' Up

I've been busy making some spring birthday cards - and what a gorgeous selection of spring stamps there are in the Stampin' Up spring/summer catalogue! The one I've used today is a beauty (and it allows me to get a little Blendabilities therapy!) Come and see:

This fabulous, wrapped-up bunch of tulips is normally used upright but I thought it would be fun to turn it sideways as if it had been laid down on a kitchen counter. I made my wooden counter with the Hardwood background stamp which I find is in constant use!

I'm not much of a one for complicated colouring but with these tulips you get a great effect with just a few scribbles of the blendabilities markers. I used the new Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi sets and added a few drops of Crystal Effects for that 'fresh from the garden' look!

The beautiful sentiment is from Basic Butterflies and I'm finding it's one I use again and again.

I'll be linking this card up with CASology where the code word is Birthday, Seize the Birthday where anything goes this time, and ATSM which is running a CAS challenge this week.

Just a very quick post from me today because I'm getting ready for my VIV (Very Important Visitor!) in between washing mud off my mud magnet puppy who is looking more guinness than champagne! Who is visiting? My lovely daughter is coming back from uni for the weekend so we're all hanging out the flags for her!

Have a great weekend and I'll see you on Monday,
