Tulips Thinking of You Card

Since spring is blooming here, I pulled out my tulips stamp. I am waiting rather impatiently for my tulips to bloom – maybe it will be TODAY.

When I stamped the tulips, the ink would not dry…I ultimately had to pull out my heat gun to dry it. I didn’t realize until I was photographing that the paper I thought was Neenah white card stock was Bristol card stock – OOPS. Not what I intended.  (And it bothers me that the whites don’t match – but that is a personal problem!  🙂  )
