Spring blooms... won't be long until the tulips will be done blooming.  So, I had to take a few more pics before they're gone.  Last fall I found a package of purple tulips.  Since purple is my favorite color I picked up a pack.  I'm SO glad that I did.  These tulips are beautiful!  This photo shows them as a little "pink-ish", but ILR they are purple.

Now, on to a card!
My husband's birthday is coming up in a few days.  I usually make his card several weeks before his birthday.  This year I was really having a tough time coming up with an idea for his card.  Well...last weekend at the StampScrapArt Tour, I found a wonderful Tim Holtz stamp, that gave me an idea that I liked.  So, I bought the set (my first Tim Holtz set...I can't find many locally).  The "check" in the pocket that I created is one of the stamps in this new set.  If you can see in the closeup pic, the check is signed by Cupid!  This will be a fun one to use for Valentine's Day, too.
Since my husband doesn't read my blog, I think I'm safe posting the card now.  I hope.....
By the way, the "stitching" that you see on the card, is actually markings made with a white gel pen.  The "stitching" turned out better than I thought it would.
Well, it looks like we're in for a rainy weekend here.  I might have to stay in and stamp  :)
