Tulip Thank You...

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  
Congratulations on this fortnights winner.  I can't believe how very few entries we've got this week Halloween is over and now everyone in the Northern Hemisphere are getting ready for Thanks Giving and Christmas and haven't got time to craft?

Today is Wednesday which means we have another 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  

This week we have another lovely sketch design by Sally Dube.

Sketch # 102 

Here's a photo taken from my garden a few years ago after it had rained.  I just adore Tulips, I would love to be in Holland when all the Tulips come out, it must look amazing.

This week our wonderful sponsor is 

Bugaboo Stamps


Everything that you ever wanted to know about Bugaboo Stamps:  As if raising 5 children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the work of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. Bugaboo Stamps has become one of the leading companies in digital images. From seriously snarky to sugar sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!!  If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampilicious.  And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for the weekly Challenges at Catch the Bug.

Now it's time to grab a coffee and check out what Team

Kathie, your card is so gorgeous and so are your real tulips. I don't know why there were so few entries...kids activities are usually to blame for almost everything. Have a great week.

Marjeta said...

Kathie, your card is amazing!! Love the image and your beautiful coloring!! Love the photo of your tulips as well. I tried growing tulips but the deer ate them all up!!

The election is finally over too!! I'm hoping things will settle down now that it is all done. As I'm sure you heard, Donald Trump ended up winning.

I thought about just leaving this one word comment but I really wanted to convey how much I love this card. I don't know where you get your papers but nice job putting them together. They are always perfect. I love how you popped up the tulips too. Simply stunning this week Kathie.

PS: I hope things are shaking a bit less now. Seriously scary.
