Semper Augustus Tulips

Hello, again!  I had to share a card I made using the new Heartfelt Creations Semper Augustus PreCut Stamp Set.  This set blew me away when I saw it, and it was really interesting to learn about the history of this now nonexistent Dutch tulip.  You can read about it, and what makes the white striations here.  I was really surprised that some Dutchmen would pay more than a year's salary for one or two bulbs!  I love Spring, because I have planted many tulip bulbs in my yard, and they just brighten everything up after a cloudy and dull winter!  I just wish they would last a little longer!  It is February 1, 2011, and my daffodil bulbs are coming up!  They are about 3-4 inches tall!  They can tell that Spring is coming, I guess, and the temperature outside has warmed up a bit.

Well, I'm off to the stamp room!  I'm an addict, what can I say?  My name is Clare, and I'm a stampaholic!  There, I said it!  lol  Have a great day!  =l)
