Good Morning! 
Been ordering bulbs from Holland. I've got the job of filling tubs for DIL as well as Grandson. A few years ago when they saw my Tulip tubs? they wanted some, I had to explain you needed to plant them in October for Spring flowering.....Hence I've acquired a new job lol.

This little sweetie is Christmas Skater from All Dressed Up.
Teamed her up with a Stencil from Sweet Poppy Products.  Distress Oxide speckled egg.
 Coloured with Copics. Crystal Stickles on her 'bobbles' .

This is gorgeous Chrissy- I love the bauble stencil- bought one earlier this year and haven't got around to using it yet- makes such a lovely setting for your pretty skater.
Lucky you- a new job!!! Enjoy the planting, I'm sure your DIL will when the tulips flower.

I have never been in time for planting bulbs, I'm never in time for anything when I should be, unless you are taking me out for lunch, I'm always on time for lunch, gorgeous sweet little ice-skater and love the stenciled frame, that is beautiful, gorgeous card Chrissy..
