Purple Irises

I am holding my breath that it will soon be warm enough for the tulip, lily, and iris bulbs to begin bursting forth and filling the local flower gardens with their beautiful blossoms in a rainbow of vibrant colors. Until they do, I am going to be pulling out my Kitchen Stamp flower stamps and playing like spring has arrived! Today I am working with the Multi Step Iris. So simple to stamp and oh, so beautiful!  (Post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps).
