Happy Easter--DD#96

April 1, 2014

Nothing says "Spring" to me like tulips.  They are my favorite flowers.  I still love the first time I see them each year.  I think it is partly because I grew up in Indiana and I knew when I saw tulips that winter was finally coming to an end. I really love red tulips, but that last few years, I have seen the most beautiful purple tulips.  Gumball Green is the color for the challenge for the Dynamic Duos Challenge this week and I loved it paired with Rich Razzleberry!  ENJOY!
