Friday Faves!

 

Hi all and happy Friday! Today the design team is going to start a new feature that we plan to do every so often -- it's a day when we can all show off a few of our favorites - whether it be a favorite set, a favorite layout or even a favorite color combination. The sky is the limit!

On to my creation....

Sadly, this was a card I had to make when one of my friend's mothers passed away. While I don't like having to make sympathy cards, I do like having a classy set like Flourishes' Calla Lilies set to turn to for those tough cards to make. There is very little coloring on this one and I kept the layout simple. I think clean and classy is the way to go when sending sympathy cards. (See below for a list of the supplies and Copic markers used). 

As you can see, I added some paper piercing and some glitter glue to add a little something extra. 


And that, my friends, is it. Be sure to see what the other favorites the Flourishes gals have to showcase this Friday! It promises to be a fun-filled hop that will give you a little creative inspiration, just in time for the weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Remember, today the prices will DROP again with Flourishes' Gambler's Sale!!!! It is now.....
That's right -- all of our sale items have now been marked down to 15% off! Why is this the Gambler's Sale? Because you can get the sale items today for 15% off,  or take a "gamble" to see how low prices will go before our sale items are going, going, GONE! Click HERE to check out this fabulous and FUN sale!

Oh, and before we go -- one more bit of FUN news! You asked for it and now Flourishes has got it -- BUTTONS to match their Color Made Easy System (paper, ribbons, Copic collections all designed to color coordinate)!


So far, they have buttons to match the Rich Browns, Tiger Lily, Sunflower, Emerald Coast, Pistachio and Terra Cotta Collections. Click HERE to see for yourself! Thanks for stopping by and sharing a bit of fun with me! I hope you have a fun weekend planned ahead. Mine will be full of football playoffs, basketball, a birthday party and a date with hubby - sounds fun to me! :-) See you back here soon!

Such a pretty card for a sad time. Love how lush the leaves look. Your ribbon is divine. Good Luck with your football playoffs. It's cold and overcast and venison filled here in the mitten. Highlight of my weekend may be that daylight savings thing ending and getting the extra hour of sleep.

Julie, what a peaceful, sweet card. We used to grow these callas in CA and always had an abundance of arrangements in the house. Your coloring is so pretty!
