I’m super excited today as Mr Beez and I are heading off on a little spring break. It’s a trip I planned more than a year ago and kept as a surprise retirement gift! It’s a proper spring break too as we are off to the Netherlands to visit the gardens and bulb fields at Keukenhof. The Netherlands has a special place in both our hearts as we spent our honeymoon in Amsterdam and have made several return visits as there was a time when you could, quite cheaply, get there and back in a day from where we live.
So here’s a little card with an appropriate theme!
I’ve had this stamp, which is originally from Hero Arts, in my stash for ages. I know that when I bought it that, like a lot of my other unused purchases, I had a very specific reason for doing so. I have no idea what that reason is so the stamp has remained unused until now.
It’s called (I think!) Watercolour Tulip so I stamped it onto some watercolour card, pulling out the stamped colour with a waterbrush. The sentiment stamp was a gift that was included in an order from LC Designs and perfect for our current theme – use a sentiment – over at Crafty Boots Challenges.
When I was a child, my grandparents lived in Amsterdam for awhile and we were fortunate to be able to visit them on more than one occasion. I have very vivid memories of visiting the gardens and bulb fields back then so am very much looking forward to sharing the experience with Mr Beez.
Thanks for buzzing by and have the best day ever!
