Tulips say Spring!

Happy Friday to you!  The weekend is upon us and that is pretty darn exciting! Spring still hasn't sprung here (snowed off and on all day!) though! So, still I wait (not so patiently! ) and in the meantime I keep crafting like it is Spring in hopes that it will hurry the heck up!  Today I made tulips!  I used one of my very favorite Stampin Up! punches...the 2 step owl!  A very sweet friend of mine mentioned this punch recently so  I felt inspired to whip it out and make some of these little beauties!  {{*hiya Melina!*}} They are not  my original idea.  They are floating around all over the place and with good reason!  They are so pretty!    I have seen a couple of  different versions, but I used three owls per tulip for mine.  I cut off the little feet and one ear of each from two owls.  I sponged the pieces and layered them one on top of the other and then added the third owl on top with a pop dot!  Here is my tulip-y card:

Stamps: Best Yet (retired) and Baby Blossom
Paper: Melon Mambo, Garden Green, Crumb Cake, Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive and Basic Grey
Extras: Rhinestones, Large Label punch, White Gel pen and pop dots

A close up of the tulips!  I wanted to use the Top Note die for the vase, but it is at my other residence so the Large label punch was a handy second choice!

We have a very full weekend planned, how about you?  We have gymnastics and soccer games and travel on our agenda!  Time for me to run!  Soccer practice calls!  Have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share! :)
