Flourishes Friday!

Wow! What a week here at Flourishes - we have five new releases, a fabulous sale to take advantage of, a virutal stamp convention and now a showcase of goodies from our talented Friends of Flourishes blog team!

The first card offers up a beautiful winter white creation with a touch of soft color. Cindy Lawrence uses our new Poinsettia and Boxwood set! You can click on her blog (see the blog roll to the right) to find out more on how she did it. For now, you can just drool! Joan Bardee took the same set to create a new technique! We all know that Copic markers can bleed through the paper when you color them. But -- Joan saw something different, she used this for a new technique! Click HERE to see how she did it! The result is a soft, almost antique card that is just too pretty!

Laura Fredrickson used the Mixed Messages set to deliver up some warm wishes! I love the background Laura used behind her little basket of mail. Add in some flowers, lovely scallops and a great ribbon and tag and you have a beauty of a card!

Cindy Haffner uses the Forest of Trees set to serve up a fabulous Holiday themed creation! Isn't that tree just perfect for this time of year? I love how Cindy inked up the background in a soft way. The mini poinsettias, embossed background and ribbon are the perfect additions!

Thanks for stopping by to see what our FOF bloggers have been up to! If you need a little extra inspiration to jump start your weekend, click on the names of our design team members on our blog roll! It's the final day of the Flourishes release celebration and they have all showcased the new sets in grand style!

TGIFF! (that's That God It's Flourishes Friday!)

What a creative group you have here. I have to go to Joan's blog and figure out how she did that!
