Jingle Belles Week 18 & Amazing flowers

Happy May Day dear friends ... 
So far I've had a wonderful weekend ... yesterday my friend and I went to the City of Chester ... A lovely place steeped in history ... the sun was shining ... the city was full ... we stopped at cafe bars had coffee and took in the street performers and of course hit a few shops ...
There was such a wonderful atmosphere ... what a difference the sun makes 
The Jingle Belles prompt this week comes from Jess Moyer and we are asked to create a card without using any DP at all ... once again the DT have done fabulous cards as has Jess ... so without further ado ... here is my card 


I'm still loving my robins ... would you believe that as I was making this "Rockin' Robin" was playing on the radio? ... 
I was itching to try out my new SB dies and this was the perfect chance ... a simple black background to mount it on and some fussy cut birdies on a branch from an old Christmas card ...
A stamped greeting and some rhinestones is all that was needed along with some pretty gingham ribbon which is just ruffled onto some score tape ...


 I've got to say that this is probably the quickest card I've made 


Now I want to show you some amazing flowers ... just found in the supermarket today ... You may have seen these before but I certainly haven't ... they are Tulips ... but unusual ones ...


Do they or don't they just look like pieces of frayed linen?? Shabby chic or what? I thought they were amazing! ... sorry about the quality of the picture ... my DH took it on his phone ... yep people were looking at us like we were mad ... Lol!
and what about these Tulips ...




All curly and floppy ... but I love them ...
and finally some roses ... which I call "Vintage Roses" because they look like they have been edged in distress ink ...




That's all for now ... enjoy your day ...
Till soon

that new swirly curly frame die is awesome and you've used it sooooo brilliantly by putting it on the black background like that! ♥♥♥! many cheers for this lovely card!

ps: NO!!! i've never seen tulips like that with FRINGE ON THEM!!! awesome... but odd (in a good way)! :)

Oh that frame you used on your card is to die for, it's ever so pretty!! As are all the flowers you brought home with you; always lovely to have some gorgeous flowers at home!

Tatanky said...

Great idea ruffling the ribbon on score tape I've always done it with thread and needle but your idea is very good. I've never seen tulips like that. They're gorgeous.

Lisa said...

i haven't seen the fringed tulips before but they are gorgeous - will definitely keep my eyes open for those in the shops. very striking. TFS
