Wishful thinking

I just had to pull out my flower images and create some birthday cards for those with February and March birthdays who are SUPPOSED to be seeing the first of the crocuses peeking out, but it's just not happening yet this year!  I even put a little snow in front of the crocuses so that we can pretend they will be out soon.  The crocus and daffodil images are digis by Delicious Doodles that I've had for ages and the first set of tulips are by Fred She Said.  The irises are by Sweet Impressions and the orange ruffled tulips were a free stamp I must have gotten with a purchase somewhere.  They were all colored with Copics.  The flourishes are a die by Memory Box. 
Here is the card folded up and ready to go into an envelope:
And here is another view:
This is the larger card in a box as found in the Splitcoaststampers tutorials.  I also made one with green cardstock, same flowers and design.  They are so much fun to make!

Till next time,
Thanks for visiting!



  1. Oh, how fun Gerlinde! Love the beautiful subtle coloring on your spring bouquet, as I look out my kitchen window to a snow covered backyard! It's certainly brightened my morning. Love that it makes up into a standing "vase".

  2. Fabulous!! Love everything about it. All those flowers are gorgeous and I love the little bit of snow you added.

  3. Hi, Gerlinde! Love your beautiful flower boxes - both the spring time flowers and romantic hearts! It was so nice hearing from you! Hope all is well. I am "hanging in there" and rolling with the challenges, but am grateful to be on this side :-) thank you for visiting today, and reminding me to drop by! BEAUTIFUL artwork, as always, on your blog. hugs, de

  4. Love this one - love all the different flowers. Very pretty!
