Levitating Tulips

Mornin' y'all!  I was supposed to be at work today, but my boss switched my schedule around so now I'm off today and working on Friday.  I have laundry to do (ALWAYS) and things to do in my craft room :) So let's get started!

Had some fun on Sunday playing with the new Cactus Cuties set, though this looks like a pot of tulips to me.  I was silly too, I stamped and cut out all the images and then ended up sticking them all on a white circle, ha.  Anyway, I popped up the two flowers and I'm sorta tempted to draw stems for them but on the other hand I just kinda like the floating tulips look.  What do you think?

I used the sketch from Fusion:

The inspiration pic looks good enough to eat, but I also wanted to use the color challenge from As You See It so no chocolate cupcakes for me today.  Here's the color challenge:

Okay so now I want to snatch a cupcake (or two) from the Fusion inspo pic and crawl into the AYSI picture and curl up with the cat, cupcakes, and a good book.  Looks cozy!  I had fun with these colors.

I'm off to my craft room for now to have some fun in between loads of laundry.  Cheers!

This is just so cute! Love the pop of colour from the cactus flowers. It's a lovely layout and great choices of paper. Thanks for joining in with us at As You See It.

LOVE this, Christy! I'm a big fan of this new bundle, and it's perfect for our colors - why didn't I think of that?? Love your layered background - perfect paper choices! Being from Arizona, this actually does look like the landscape around here - I don't see tulips, for sure, lol. Thanks so much for playing at As You See It!
