Thank You and Winner!

The tulips peeking their first leaves through to me is always a good sign of spring. Unfortunately, here that is not the case so instead I created a card using some doodle tulip images from Inkadinkado. I also added some punched out designs and a simple sentiment from a Stampin' Up stamp and punch set. I sponged on some ink to create a sky background and I made grass with a strip of paper and a scissors. Oh, the tulips were fussy cut around too. Just a simple card.

I colored it with the Bic Mark-It alcohol ink pens. If you cannot afford to buy the Copics, these are a very reasonable alternative. I think I purchased mine from or, but I am sure they are available in other stores.

And now the exciting part of this post. I have a winner to announce. The lucky winner is Kitty. So Kitty if you can email your information I will try to get the package to you as soon as I can.

And, I want to thank all who commented and followed along on my adventure into blogging. I wish all of you a blessed and wonderful spring!
Hugs, Verna


  1. The bic pens did a marvelous job, Verna! Beautiful colors, and a delightful Spring Time card! hugs, de

  2. You did a great job colouring the doodle tulips. I have some of those Bic markers and will use them more now that I see what can be done with them. The grass looks great and the fresh and happy look of this card gives us hope that Spring will be here soon.

  3. I love your tulips, sky and the sentiment design Verna. Yes, Bic markers are so much fun to color with. I haven't tried using alcohol blending marker with them though - I think I'll try it soon and see if it will lighten to create more depth like Copics. All my best for spring to pop your way asap :)

  4. Very pretty card, Verna! I'm ready for Spring too. It's been a long Winter. We did some yard work yesterday, and I have some tulips starting to show. It will be so nice to have some beautiful color in the flower beds again.
