Hello, and welcome to another Tour de Freaks! This month we are celebrating Spring and/or Easter, and I gotta tell ya, even though it's not officially Spring until tomorrow (and it's deep-freeze Winter in most of the country) it's been Spring-like here for the past few months. Freaky weather, for sure!
If you're hopping from the beginning of the tour, you just landed here from Mary Brown's blog. I love her style! If you jumped in here, just click the buttons at the bottom of each blog to go to the next stop on the tour, and you'll make a full circle and see all the lovelies.
I only have two projects to share today, so let's start with the card. I absolutely love to color images, and the tulips in Blessed Easter are no exception.
STAMPS: Blessed Easter CARDSTOCK: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight DSP (Subtles DSP Stack), Watercolor Paper INK: StazOn Jet Black, Elegant Eggplant (pad and marker), Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Pearls Basic Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals, Blender PensThat's a whole doily that was cut to the center and pleated to add some extra texture. The tulips were stamped on Watercolor Paper and colored with a Blender Pen and ink pads.
Helpful Hint: Before I mounted the tulips on the wood block, I cut the greeting off so I could use the flowers for other occasions. I peeled the sticky foam off the greeting rubber and replaced it with clear-mount foam so it would adhere to a clear block when I wanted to use it.
Up next is a sweet treat. Did you know today is National Oatmeal Cookie Day? Yes, it is! And this little box works perfectly for a gift of yummy oatmeal cookies or any other sweet treat, for that matter. Mini Easter basket, perhaps?

Here's a close-up of the rosettes that decorate it. Everything is in bloom around my house already, so the roses just seemed so appropriate.
