Flourishes Free For All Friday!

Hi all... TGIF! This was one heck of a week and I'm actually looking forward to some down time with my family! How about you?

It's Flourishes Free For All Friday, which means all the Flourishes gals grab one of their favorites from the new release and get it inky! I chose the new Hearts & Flowers set. I just know this will be a "go to" set for quite a while! It's just so easy to create with.

On to my creation for the day....

This is a pretty basic design. I love having more simple cards made up to stick in the mail to friends that need a little pick me up! Sometimes all the bows and bling I like to stick on cards doesn't make it all that well through the mail! After stamping my main image on Flourishes Classic White, I cut and matted it up on some Basic Grey background paper, used a Stampin' Up border punch, and then colored up my image with Copic markers (Y21,Y23, Y35,Y38, B0000). Add some stitching and  a sentiment from the set and... voila... ready to mail!!

I do have some sad news to share before I go! This last release week was the last for a dear friend and fellow Flourishes designer. Laura Fredrickson is deciding to take a step back to have more family time and, well, I think we can - at times - all relate to that. And, as you look below to our designer link list, you'll see a brand new face -- Barbara Anders is making the move from the Friends of Flourishes team on to the Senior DT. Bar is a terrific lady and a fabulous designer and it will be fun creating with her! You can read all about the changes HERE over on the Flourishes blog.
Before I go, today is the last day for the Flourishes New Release Bundle -- it's a package that allows you to get all of our new release sets for January at 10% off! It's a great deal on some even greater sets! Just click HERE to travel to our store to see!
