Tulips and Polky Spots

Before we get to the polky spots, I had to share this with you first.

Hubby went to Amsterdam and all I got was....

50 gorgeous tulips!

Am I happy? Yes I am. I do believe tulips, along with gerbera daisies, are my favourite flowers. They are so simple and colourful, who can help but love them. And since hubby thinks that I don't really appreciate his lovely gests, I thought I would prove to him that I do by sharing my beautiful gift with all of you. Aren't they gorgeous?

In fact, I love them so much, I decided to set up shop next to them today instead of in my studio in order to really enjoy them. So in case you don't believe me, dear, here is my proof! (I like to cover all my bases as you can see).

Now that I've shared that with all of you, I have something more. Something that may be of more use to some of you than looking at a bunch of flowers (though they are really very pretty). In fact, I hope this will be of use to a good many of you.

It's all about Polky Spots because besides tulips and gerbera daisies, I really do think that polka dots are one of my favourite things. Okay, probably chocolate and strangely enough endives as well, but I digress...

Polky Spots! I've been having some fun with patterns and effects and I'm sharing it with you. 5 different papers full of polka dots of all sizes. Blue, red, pink, green.... Eeps aren't they fun! You can download them in a pdf file by clicking on the link on the right. They are formatted in 8x8 inch size. If you need a different size or help resizing, just left me know.

Have fun!

Love the tulips, 50 tulips are sure to brighten any space...lucky girl!

I also love your polky spots papers, and I love that you call the polky spots, much more fun sounding than polka dots.

I cant see tulips or polky spots and not feel a little happier. Thanks for sharing.

oh some of my very favorite things too, polka dots and tulips. I love pink tulips firstly, or sometimes the purple ones when they are mixed with white ones.
