Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! Before I get to today's goodies I need to announce the winner of my Exciting news post. The winner was randomly drawn from one of the boys that ran into the room, and that is.....
JoanneO who said "Congrats! You have every right to feel proud, Can't wait to see the issue. Around here it is sometimes hard to find it."
Congrats! Email me your snail mail addy to twinshappy1 at yahoo dot com so I can get your prize out to you. Thank you everyone for your congrats and being excited with me.

 Today, the Flourishes Design Team is serving up a bit of floral fancy! Each one of our designers picked up their favorite from the A Year in Flowers Collection. Have you seen these stamps? If not, you're missing out! Each of the three sets offers a different flower of the month to last the whole year long. Here's a peek

A Year In Flowers GFX copy

Now for my creation today.
I stamped out one of my favorite flowers in the three collections which is the crocus from A Year in Flowers 1. They are stamped onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink.
I have colored with just a two copic collections today:

Once colored I thought I would try the Mojo Monday blog sketch for the week and well I got inpired a different way using the sketch. ha!  My crocus panel is layered up onto some of the Color Made Easy Crocus collection paper.

My base is using the Color Made Easy Crocus collection still with a designer paper from the Echo Park Winter Wishes collection. This pack of paper is one of my favorites I think this year. Took my main panel and added some beautiful white lace trim part way over, then added my ribbon bow of Color Made Easy Crocus Lavendar that I tied off with a ivory jute and olive button combo. Those beautiful decorations along the side right are the shimmery Candi iced sugar that I popped up on the foam pads that you buy with them. Voila! I think this turned out beautiful and hope you like it as well.
Be sure to check out the creations from the design team today:

Your coloring is so perfect, Stacy! I can't wait to see the purple crocuses popping up in my yard – hopefully soon, but probably not ;-)

One of my favorite flowers and now that the bunnies have moved out of town they will actually have a chance of blooming rather than being chewed off!

Fabulously coloured image and a beautiful card!
