Lockhart Tulips

I am really liking these Lockhart Stamps. Such pretty images. I am going to have to order some soon (all these images were shared with me). For this card I chose to use Tulips. Whenever I see tulips it reminds me of Sam's and my trip to Holland when we were stationed in Germany. It was a trip that really was a nightmare but we did get to see lots of wonderful things. Here's a few photos from the Keukenhof. We only had two hours there but I could've spent days there. So, so pretty!
On to my card~~ I guess I was in a bright mood, LOL! and simple, I guess I've been in a very simple mood lately. Sometimes simple is good, right?
Supplies:
card size: 4x4
stamps:
Tulips , TAC Still Life and TAC Dance Yourself Silly (both retired) on inside
paper: Gina K Luxury cardstock, cardstock from my stash
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Palette Cote D'Azure
others: prismacolors, stardust pen, cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder , dew drops
Also wanted to put a reminder here!
Don't forget the Promo that Susana has going on right now!!!If you purchase any 4 regular Lockhart Stamps (any combination) from either the New or Previous collection (NOT including Itty Bittys) you will get to select a free IB from the selection that she has available at the time at her store. You do not need to buy all 4 at once. She has a punch card system and will let you know when you hit the 4 regular Lockharts!!! So what are you waiting for? Go to Susana's store and order some!!

Hi Danni, I love your cards, they are awesome. Tulips are my very favorite flowers. Finally got my hubby to realize that instead of roses. Yea!

I love tulips and I love Keukenhof. I was born in Holland but have lived in Canada since 1956. In 1986, my DH, son & daughter and I went to Holland. We were there for almost 3 weeks and spent most of the time there with relatives. We spent 4 days of our own in Amsterdam and did all the touristy things. We were there in May and the tulips in Keukenhof were gorgeous. Holland had a late spring that year so we were lucky in that respect.

I love the card you made.

Such a happy happy card - love it! Everytime I hear "Tulip" I think of my sweet yellow labrador back home...that is her name!
hugs, Jami
