Merry Christmas from Flourishes...


April Fools! It is April Fools day, however it is also time for Flourishes Christmas Spirit Challenge. We have made some changes to the challenge for the remaining year. Check out the Blog post or SCS for all the details on the changes.

This months challenge is using the sketch above provided by Julie. So pull out those Christmas stamps and get inspired! I used the Alleluia Angel since this is the set we are giving away this month to 10 lucky winners! I love her dress in a rich red color. Somehow my silk ribbon bow covered parts of the sketch but you can tell its there. :0) I can't help myself with these tag and button combos. I just love the Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennants. This is the last piece of my Basic Grey Jovial paper from Christmas last year. I like how this turned out and plan to make a few more but in other colors. The Gambler's sale is up to 50% off now! Whohoo... Now that is a screaming deal! Be sure to check out the wonderful creations with the sketch from the DT: Christine Cindy Julie Leslie Dawn Danielle Barbara

Our Spring break started today, YEA! I am so excited and so are the kids. I will be busy all next week with plans of going here and there all day. At least that is what the boys have told me. ha ha I am sure it will be a relaxing week all around, I sure do need it. Have a great weekend!
