It's a fun-filled FRIDAY!

Happy first Friday in 2014!! We want to extend our best wishes to each of you for the New Year! Since this is the Friday before Flourishes new release, you are probably wondering where our Pre-Release Challenge is? Well, we decided to let the Friends of Flourishes gals run this month's challenge! Be sure to tune in next Tuesday and play along with the Release Week Timeless Tuesday Challenge! We'll have three winners that week for the FULL release! Play along as many times as you want for multiple chances to win!
  Free for All Friday with Border 

Now for some fun today, the Flourishes Senior Design Team has a bit of beautiful variety to show off. Some of the team got to play with Becky Fleck’s new round of January Sketches at PageMaps and others on the team are going to surprise you with some of their own creativity.  Yours truly got not one but TWO sketches to play around with. I'll share one today and another one coming up on Monday! So... stay tuned for more fun.

On to my creation! First up, here's the PageMaps sketch. Isn't this a FUN one???


And here's a peek at my card! 
I knew that I would have a blast with this one. I used last month's Lots of Thoughts stamp set. Love the variety in this set and this sunflower is super cute! I paired it up with some fun Everyday Ecclectic paper (it's the chevron design), some twine, wood button and a doily I found in one of my embellishment drawers! Of course I started with the Lots of Thoughts Silhouette Cut File and some Flourishes Classic White Card Stock. I stamped in some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then... grabbed my Copic Markers! 

Here's a peek at the finished colored image! You can see that I did accent a bit of the flower with a few dots from a white gel pen..... 

And here's the sentiment I used. It is actually from the Always Blooming stamp set!


And that, my friends is it! A little birdie told me that Becky will have this month's card sketches up tomorrow. So, if you need a little creativity to kick off your weekend, be sure to click on over HERE tomorrow!

Until then, join these lovely ladies for some fabulous inspiration to kick-off your New Year! And don't forget to mark your calendar for next Tuesday when the Timeless Tuesday gals help us kick off Flourishes' January release!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend and I'll see you back here soon!
