So much for my tulips!

Just a few weeks ago I was complaining because my tulips weren't even peeking through the ground because the weather was so cold for April.  They bloomed earlier this month but didn't last long with the hot weather we had last weekend.  It's another really warm spring day, perfect for my grandsons' baseball game and soccer match this morning.  Nick pitched a great 4 innings, throwing only 3 balls, the rest strikes.  He's so happy to be back in the game after being so sick!  And his team is happy to have him back since it is playoff time and they are undefeated so far.  Matt's team got pasted in soccer, but he still came off the field with a big smile.  Having fun is the whole idea after all!

I digress.  
So sorry.  
Back to tulips.

Imagine That!  Digis by Kris has provided last month's participants in their monthly challenge with a lovely, free digi image called Water Can Tulips to use this month.  I used the precolored image for the sake of expediency. 

Papers, butterfly and preprinted tag are freebies from my Quick Cards Magazine.  Lace is from a second hand craft store.  Pearls and sentiment stamp are CTMH.  Image was die cut with Spellbinders scalloped oval die.  And I used a skittle to hold the tag in place.
