All Things Grow With Love

Hello!  Here's another preplanned post to share. Today, I've got some yellow tulips for you....no water or vase needed!  This pretty die cut from K & Co. was beautiful on its own, but I matted it with kraft cardstock, added a punched border, some twine and a little sentiment tag.  It elevated that die cut to something with a bit more 'oomph'.


Love the glitter on these blossoms.  They came that way!  The sentiment is from Fiskars' All Year Greetings.


Hope this bouquet brought some joy to your day!

Thanks for the encouraging well-wishes. :)  I am on crutches for the foreseeable future, and won't take my first step (albeit in this boot) until around August 9th. Crawling up and down stairs is getting old and i look forward to walking again.

Oh yes I have these in my stash from way back when. I think I picked up a pack when I still lived in Hawaii and I would buy bags and bags of stuff at Michaels and hoard it because we didn't have Michaels there.

This of course is elegantly and beautifully done! So pretty for summer!

Ann Schach said...

Beautiful, Colleen! You added the right touches!

Oh, my goodness, this is stunning. My eyes are very happy! I seem to have gone a little glitter crazy these days, so I'm loving all that sparkle. Such beautiful flowers. You must be having stamping withdrawal by now. Well, you're getting closer to it every day!
