His & Hers--- final day!

We hope you've been enjoying all the fun and fabulous sneak peeks this week! We have one final set to show off and this one -- is for the #1 guy in your life -- your DAD!

Introducing....

This fun set drawn by the talented Lauren Pope features a handful of images sure to make your dear ole dad or... the father of your children smile! It's a way to say - kick back and relax -- this is your day! Use it for birthdays, a little pick me up, or Father's Day. Anytime you want to tell the men in your life that you love them!

Want to win this set? All you need to do is leave a comment here! It's just that simple! We'll announce a winner tomorrow as we wrap up this week's big event.

Now, on to the winner of yesterday's DIY Topiaries set! Random.org drew the number 45, which means that Susan Parnell is the winner! When I counted out the entries, I realized that Susan was nice enough to give us all a recipe! Check it out!

Susan Parnell said... My favorite summer treat is Blueberry Almond Bars! They are yummy in the tummy! I have attached the recipe!

Blueberry Almond Bar
½ cup butter
1 (12 oz) pkg. white baking chips
2 eggs, slightly beaten
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract

This is a great mans set with everyday things. Love it.

IrishGirl said...

I was on an artist's blog yesterday and she'd used your stamp with the baby nestled on the moon to make a card. I immediately fell in love with the card and the stamp and luckily she credited Flourishes for the stamp. That's how I found you! Your stamps are great and it's fun to have found you right in the middle of your new releases.

Cheers,
Colleen
