Tulip Time

Good May 1st to you all!!!
It's another wonderful warm, sunshiney day today....
I have tons to do, we are leaving tomorrow until Sunday....
I also have several cards to make this month for birthdays...
which brings us to this card I made for my Mom's birthday
she will be 86 and all she wants is seeds for her gardens...
yep she is 86 and she still gardens...
on a smaller scale then me...but isn't that great??
 
The challenge this week at Joan's Gardens...well, it was my idea.... 
while at Joans last month we (5 of us) helped Joan with some challenge ideas
so, if you have any complaints, blame me...lol...
the challenge is the word "TULIPS"...
use something from each letter of the word
here is mine
 
 
T....I used my tulip dies...I combined 2 of them to get these 3d kind of tulips
U...this one was tricky, so I used the word "ultimate"
L....I added some lace to my wheelbarrow, which was cut on my Circut
I....this was easy, as I used an "item" purchased at Joan's Gardens, the Memory Box
      dies Tulip Petals and Dancing Tulips, as well as the Kaiser pearl, and the Joy
      grass die
P....Red Pearl
S....sentiment
 
I wanted to share a few pictures of my "kitchen Garden".....it's where I got the inspiration
 
 
 
my kitchen garden is full of herbs and flowers, small but powerful at times
and also my gorgeous all white daffodil...I have about 37 varieties of daffodils

 
and the blooming Leopards Bane

 
well off to, you can guess where...the gardens!!!

AAAAHHH so THERE's where the blame lies for this fun (and tricky) challenge. It was the "U" that really tripped me up this week, and oddly the "L" too because I didn't think of loops or lace, or even the name of several of the L dies I have! That little wheelbarrow is just adorable. Thank you for the inspiration, Diane!Cute card and clever wheelbarrow wheel.
