Tulips, Grape Hyancinth and other flowers of the season make up this bright border bouquet. The return of the songbirds also help usher in the wonderful spring season.

How can you say that so early in the derby? I could imagine "favorite so far"... perhaps "by far so far" but many more designs to see!

Not dissing the design at all; it is beautifully done. GMV, and good luck!

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!
...a number of shirts on teetrade.com

Sailstud...she might be referring to her favorite of my three entries. That's how I interpreted it. Thank you both for your votes. This is going to be a hotly competitive week....I can already tell. Great entries all around!

Thanks Aheav. I really like this one too. My mom has an amazing tulip garden. The parrot tulips in their full glory were used for the outlined tulips that make up the lower portion of the design.

The design started as a tribute to my mom and originally had a whole "Mother Nature" theme. I used photos of my mom, me and my daughter to give the Mother aspect of the design. But, once I finished, I figured people might not really want the artist's family emblazoned on their chest. Probably a little too corny and for some reason I kept thinking Sargent Pepper.... so I dropped the idea of the face and submitted a toned down version. Glad you like the entry on the green.

Hi Narkus- Thank you! Once I realized I wasn't going to use the Mother Nature one and removed the faces, this one didn't seem to fit centered very nicely. So, I moved it to the border. If I should be lucky enough to have it printed, I think the fullness of the design will really look great against the green tshirt and the tulips and birds will be very noticeable on the body.

I didn't want my 3 entries to be too similar....so I really tried to mix it up a bit and give different shirt colors, designs and placement, so that the voters could hopefully find something that interests them.

Thanks again for the comment Narkus!

Totally a fan of this shirt. This is what the spring entries should be all about. Bright colors and vibrance.

In for 2. Thank you and good luck, klswoot.

I'll be sure to check with you first before I form anymore opinions, so you can let me know what I'm supposed to think. I'll just send you first drafts of my future posts so you can approve them first. Thanks.

Oh No! Neck in Neck with a Skulls entry....how can that be? Spring is a happy, colorful time....isn't it? Where are all the happy, smiley voters? We have a fog of zombies, grouchy bears, robots crushing butterflies...but no entry that is happy go lucky. As much as I like a lot of the fog entries, I wish we had at least one that represents a colorful happy Springtime.

edit: oops... no longer neck in neck with skull/spider...as I wrote it, it got two more votes. Surprised that even a Spring derby brought out the darkside....

Unfortunately, skulls are everywhere these days. Trying to buy skullless shirts these days, even for kids, is an adventure. A loooooooooooooong adventure. And that's not a good thing.
