GC48 - GROWTH (Tulip)

Over at Gingersnap Creations they have a weekly challenge. If you belong to the Yahoo Group you get an email on Friday night to remind you of ongoing challenge deadlines. For the challenge that's closing that weekend - it's a reminder to the "QUEENS OF LAST MINUTE CLUB". That's me this week! The challenge was simply GROWTH.

To me the best part of Spring is the flowers that start popping up - some times through the snow. (Did I mention we got "officially" 14 inches of snow on Friday? That's spring in Colorado!)

I had gotten a call from my LSS that a stamp I ordered was in (it had been so long I didn't remember ordering it or what it was). So Saturday I went over to get it (I didn't get it...I still don't remember even wanting that stamp.) However, I *DID* get a bunch of new Hero Arts stamps (I'm so excited about their new "retro" line I can't stand it). The tulip and leaf are part of an acrylic set - such elegant lines. And when I got home my new 6x6 pads of Basic Grey MAX & WHISPERS was in the mail box! Stamping heaven!!!

Stamps: Hero Arts ANTIQUE ENGRAVINGS & Amuse sentiment
Paper: Basic Grey MAX & WHISPERS
Ink: Archival Coffee
Accessories: brads
