It's gonna be a bright, bright sunshine-y day!

The sun is out, the sky is blue!!!  How about a few flowers?  Anyone?  We are far from seeing anything bloom 'round here... but I have hope in my heart, and new stamps to get inky!!

Tulips are my most favorite flower... these are far brighter than the white ones I carried on my wedding day, but Exotic Tulips deserve exotic, bright colors!

I also have a few of the new Penny Black stamps to play with... my attempt on interactively lifting the cloche from the cake from Lovely Birthday

 an acetate window on the card front...
 and the cake is on the inside, glued just from the top
hiding the sentiment underneath it!
I hope you have a better time of
'getting the picture' than I did!
I'll be back in a few with more cards
that are for the birds!

Yes, definitely a hard one to photograph, but I got it and it's a wonderful design as are those exotic tulips!

Your tulips are gorgeous and cheerful, Michele! I feel like hearing steps of spring.
I love your acetate dome. The way you attached the stamped cake image is so clever! The receiver will get a kick out of it!

Such a cool cake and love your design! The tulips are gorgeous--love the color! Botanica planted 60,000 bulbs in 96 different varieties. Can't wait to see them in bloom!
