More Spring Blossoms

On a spring trip to Washington state 15 years ago, I saw yard after yard with beautiful bushes covered with hydrangeas blooming in glorious shades of pinks and blues and purples.  They don't grow as well here in the Texas heat, but every spring I love seeing them turn up in stores just in time for Easter and Mother's Day. I saw the first one of the year this week so they were the inspiration for this week's Kitchen Sink Stamps cards. (post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps)

  4. I just love hydrangeas... they are my most favorite flowering bush. My grandma had a one that had white blooms instead of purple or pink... I called it a snow ball bush. Great job on the cards... they look so real!

  6. You must be an expert when it comes to matching up what looks like 2 step stamp images to finish both of these gorgeous cards in just minutes Lynn. The way you added all those colors gives it such a watercolory elegance and depth to both. Bravo on two beautiful cards!

  11. I had to finally break down and buy one of these flowering shrubs- it is small, and I hope it does well this Spring! My neighbor had a beautiful one that is so pretty! I LOVE this stamp- your pink one is cheery, and the purple, the perfect card for a sympathy card. Wonderful duo of cards!

  12. Lynn, you have such a knack of which colors go into the recipes for these multi-layers. Both of these are wonderfully done and so life like.
