Spring Tulips + CTMH Cards from 4/14/15

Haven't seen hide nor hair of a tulip in any of my flower beds yet.  I do have a few daffodils blooming and a few more buds ready to open.   Spring is getting a really late start.  

Thought I'd use a retired CTMH stamp set, Blessed, for the tulips on this card for The Muse Challenge #113.  I switched the contrast color from Blue to Purple and used sentiments from the CTMH stamp set, Just to Say,  that came bundled with the newest cricut cartridge.  I don't often participate in the Muse Challenge, but I really liked this week's layout and technique.

Here are a few more challenges into which I am entering this card:

Red Rubber Inspirational #216 - Make a fuss (I fussy cut  a second set of the tulips so I could pop them.)
Creative Moments Challenge #66 - Anything Goes with optional Spring/Easter
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Make your own background
Top Tip Tuesday Challenge - 3 of something (stamped tulips)
Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge #64 - Anything Goes with optional Mother's Day
Through the Purple Haze Challenge #84 - Anything Goes

Before I go make a batch of chocolate chip cream cheese cupcakes,
here are the cards we made on Tuesday at Joyce's CTMH Card Class using the April Stamp of the Month.

(The message sheet pulls up from the typewriter carriage.  Gluing was a bit tricky.)

My kitchen is going to smell so good in an hour!!!  TTFN

  8. Wow on the tulip card, Debi ! After that, I got totally distracted at the "chocolate chip, cream cheese, cupcakes" but I think the rest of the post had to do with Notes and old typewriters. lol

  9. Love the different shades of purple you've used! So glad you joined us at Muse this week!
