    Lovely bouquet of Tulips Mary, these flowers are the best indicator that warmer weather is on it’s way, mine are already peeking out of the ground, it always amazes me how they endure the harsh Winter and year after year, they come out beautiful and strong.
    I always love the look of stamped images on Kraft paper or, in this case, Crumb Cake, somehow the inks take shades very different than the original colors, so beautifully.
    Thank you for sharing.

  2. beautiful tulips cards!

    This is “one fabulous” looking card Mary. Favorite part is the amazing looking sentiment.

    Good Monday Morning, Mary,
    Love these tulips. I have them but they have not been inked up as yet. I like the colors on the crumb cake cardstock. The saying is the best!

  5. I love the pretty Calypso Coral tulips on the Crumb Cake base, Mary. Great job! Enjoy your day!

  6. What a beautiful card and “tranquil” is exactly the right description. I love the crumb cake paper as the background. Well done, Mary!

  7. Such beautiful simplicity! I love the flowers stamped on Crumb Cake. Lovely card, Mary!

  8. I’m loving this stamp set. Made it into Easter cards. Hope the basketweave folder is added to the new catalog. Love to have it. Happy Easter, Mary!
