My yellow tulips are blooming. Those bulbs are over 30 years old, but they come up every year just in time for Mother's Day. I didn't even see buds on them earlier this week. The buds are very small, hiding at the base of the plant. The flower opens first, very close to the ground among the leaves. Then the stem grows last, after the tulip opens. Eventually the flower will stand about 8 inches tall.
Today I have a Mother's Day card to share. It features a digi image from Digi Stamps 4 Joy. Now that I think about it, this sentiment could be used for just about any occasion. I added just few touches of color to the image, gems, ribbon with bow, punched border and some butterfly stickers.
