A little note of thanks...

A little note of thanks to those of you who regularly leave me kind comments!!

You may have noticed I have been doing 'all things green' recently...
This started when I came across a St Patrick's Day ATC in my folders.
I added a few extras to it and it became this:

You will notice that the main image is a Dragons Lair Designs dragon. 
I used this as inspiration in my 'Green' challenge in the Dragons Lair Fan Group on Facebook.
I will link this to Incy Wincy's Shades of Green Challenge

Anyway I thought I would make another 'green' inspiration...

 I just recieved this fabulous die from Craftstash

Apple Blossom Craft Collection Tulip Trio

So I had to try it out!! Tulips are one of my favourite flowers!

I took a piece of Citrus DP from Dragons Lair Designs, die cut the tulips - my idea was that the stalks would be on green areas and the flowers on colours. This is the paper:

I added a strip of the same paper to the bottom of a (glossy) lemon card base and then the die cut (using a glue pen).

 I added three stamped and fussy cut oranges
 (using a stamp from SU Tart and Tangy with Versa Colour orange ink
 on another part of the paper).

Finally, again in the orange, another SU stamp - A little note of thanks!

Here is another attempt to photograph the card showing the correct colours - it was so dull this morning...

I will link this to Less Is More Colour week - citrus.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Lovely ATC and Card. Great inspiration for anybody wanting to do the "green" challenge on the DLD Fan group on Facebook.

  2. Very fresh and spring-like card for LIM! Nicely done!

  3. Love the collage effect of your tulip card, very stylish. Karen x

  4. I'm not sure that blue is exactly a citrus colour Susan, but it's a lovely design!
    Thanks so much

    1. I am afraid it's my poor photography Chrissie! The light was so poor this morning the lime green has come out as blue. I have added a couple more photos to show it in a better light but it still looks blue...

  5. Beautiful designs and I do love tulips.

  8. Hi all your makes are stunning. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  9. You've made a delightful card with your new dies. I was thinking along.the same lines as Chrissie about the blue, but the original picture of the paper you used does show the green colour.
    Thanks so much

  12. Photographying our projects is a pain.

    The card is very pretty - whatever color.
