Flourishes Winter Thaw...

Is that not the coolest photo? Yes it is time for the Flourishes Pre-Challenge! This is your chance to win our entire release for February. Sneak Peeks start on Wednesday next week. Check out the blog for all the details on the challenge and for the Mr. Linky to link up your creations. Be sure to check out the end of my post for the Gamblers Sale!!!!



Now I bet you were looking at the IC piece and you saw all that white as I did, right? LOL If not that is okay, but the shimmery wet look of that snow was what caught my eye. I pulled out the Cherry Blossoms for the center of my white and used the Tea Rose Copic Collection to color the blooms. I added a bit of Y19 copic to the center of each bloom. Layered some ribbon and added a few jewels. Very clean and crisp! Be sure to check out the beautiful work of the Design Team girls:

Starting February 3rd, Flourishes will be hosting a progressive sale called our Gambler's Sale. Each week, we will drop prices until the stamp sets listed below are out of stock. WE will start at 10% off and each Thursday, will drop prices by 5% until they reach up to 50% off. Quantities are limited and there will be no backorders on any of the stamp setsfacing retirement. So, get these sets before they are history!
This has been a rough week for me, haven't been able to stamp too much. Figuring out what I can and can't eat has been interesting. However I have found that fish is a great source of protein that I can eat and not have to chew a lot. Very positive along with lots of protein shakes, oatmeal, mac n cheese, smoothies, and tomatoe basil soup. And who knew that Manicotti without the actual Manicotti would be so good? Yes that means I only ate the middle part of the dish, ha ha But it was good. Feeling a bit better now that I can see a few menu options in my future. I hope you all have a wonderful Super Bowl weekend! Go Packers!!! :0)

Wow! Brings back days of braces realignment! memories! menu changes and tweeking! You go, girl! Middles of ravi, mashed imitation crab salad from the slap chopper, and, last resort, pureed pizza are doable. Adding a teaspoon of protein powder to each dish makes the meal last longer before the hungries approach. Keep Looking UP!
Yellow / gold is the color of the weekend topped by your fav team's detail color.

Nobody has an eye for white like you do, Stacy. But, you know, there is all that icy frost on the ground. I can see how you were white-inspired. At any rate, your card is simply gorgeous!
