Big News!

We've known for quite awhile that we have the best of the best when it comes to our designers! They all add their own artistic spin to the beautiful Flourishes images. We are happy to say, one of the names you know and love is making a comeback. One name you've gotten to know over the past few months is sticking around. And, we have a fresh new Flourishes face that you've seen here on the Flourishes Newsletter plenty of times!

First things first, a big welcome back to the talented Leslie Miller! Leslie took some time off to just enjoy life. A few weeks ago, she told us she was ready to come back and we honestly couldn't be happier! She has the magic touch when it comes to coloring-- the Midas touch! We can't wait to see what she comes up with for our release (only 9 days away!)

Our next bit of news involves a lady who has been working side by side with our Senior Design Team as our Guest Designer for the past three months. Latisha Yoast has grown to be one of our family and we just couldn't see her go! Her energy level is high and her creativity is off the charts! We were so excited when she said she would love to stick around and be a permanent member of our Senior Design Team!

So, who is our next Guest Designer? It's a face you've seen here before. Stacy Morgan was a regular in our Flourishes Featured Stamper challenges and regularly knocked our socks off! She has such a clean and elegant style and we just knew she would be a perfect fit here! To get ready for her big reveal, Stacy wanted to share some new creations with you featuring some of her favorite Flourishes sets!

This first card using the Thinking Of You set just showcases Stacy's unique style! See what I was talking about when I said her trademark was a clean and elegant design?

Her next creation is a darling pocket card using the Bird And Vine set. I just love the shades of soft pink and the romantic scallops! Here's a photo of the pocket card out...

And here is it all together.... Too pretty! Just too soft and elegant!
We hope you join us with a big round of applause for these ladies! It's a warm welcome, a welcome back and a glad you're sticking around kind of day! We just know these ladies have wonderful things in store! You're going to definitely want to stick around!

Speaking of sticking around, don't miss out on tomorrow's fun when the Friends of Flourishes Team takes over the blog with a challenge for you! It's a timeless treat that is sure to please! So, stay tuned!
