Christmas challenge and retirement

It's soon to be so long, farewell to some of Flourishes oldies but goodies! With a new crop of stamps coming out and plenty planned in the coming months, we need to scale back to make room on our shelves for the new designs! What does that mean? It means once these retiring stamps are gone, they will be GONE forever! So, stock up now before they vanish!
Just click HERE to see if one of the sets on your wish list is up for retirement and then.... snatch it up while you can!

The Dirty Dozen Christmas challenge for July is Give me a Pennant. Fancy up your sentiment with a fun pennant, create a pennant background or even some tags using pennants. Anyone can play along and the challenge is all month long. If you up-load to SCS use the keyword SCSCCJUL12 for us to see your creations.

We give several gifts each year at Christmas that don't necessarily need cards or tags on them. However I do like it to say something and be a little spiffed up besides the paper and bows. This is a fun way to decorate the outside with these fun tags. The center is using a set that is retiring from Flourishes called A Gift For You. One of the best sets for making tags at Christmas time. I have used Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennants and Nested Pennants for the shape of the tags. A ribbon tab and button twine combo for the top, with a few jewels scattered about. Easy little decorations for the outside of a gift instead of a card. Have a wonderful day!
