Just Because….

 

 

This week’s Magical Monday challenge at Paper Cupcakes,  we are challenged by Amber to use 3 patterned papers.  I don’t know about you, but that is definitely a challenge for me so I went with Basic Grey’s “Gossamer”   collection and figured I couldn’t go wrong.  Stop by the Paper Cupcakes challenge blog and join in – there’s always a nice prize for a lucky someone! And don’t forget the Tea party blog hop that starts August 11th – lots of cute new images!

Paper Cupcakes Tulips

Do you know someone that likes to send out little “Just Because”, or “Thank You” cards, maybe even just a quick note.  These beautiful tulips color up quick and the cards are easy to put together. You could make a set in no time and have a great gift for someone special. I love to send pretty cards to people I care for as e-mail to me is just so impersonal,

This image is so versatile  – think of all the possibilities – gold and deep red, or rust for autumn, reds for Christmas, ooooh - or a group of mixed colors – there are so many beautiful tulips, and being one of my most favorite flowers, I can see so many uses for it.
