It's a Celebration!

It's hard to believe.... but two years ago, this one-of-a-kind stamp boutique opened its doors to a whole new kind of creative expression! In honor of our SECOND BIRTHDAY, we would love to have you help us celebrate! In fact, we've set aside the entire month of August for fun and games, challenges, and ways to honor all of you that have truly made Flourishes a success!

Today, the entire design team along with some of our Friends of Flourishes cooked up creations to honor this special day! We wanted to give you a little bit of eye candy before we send you on your way to check out more of our fabulous designers' work! We truly believe we have the best designers in stamp land!

Check out Leslie's gorgeous his and hers money holders!


Cindy chose a sleek and sophisticated creation!

And, Stacy thought out of the box.... way out of the box!
For all the details on the individual cards, you can hop on over to the designers' blogs! While you are hopping...

Christine Okken... she has some birthday blog candy!
Cindy Lawrence
Faith Hofrichter
Julie Koerber
Latisha Yoast
Laura Fredrickson
Leslie Miller
Stacy Morgan
Jan Marie Caruso
Dee Jackson
Silke Ledlow

And... guess what? We want YOU to join us in the fun! Simply make a birthday creation of your own by next Thursday, August 6th at 5:00 PM CST - link your card to this post or upload to SCS using the keyword FLLCBDAY. Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, but if you don't we'd still love it if you played! We'll pick one lucky winner and will make the big announcment next Friday! The prize will be a stamp set of your choice! So, make time for play time and you might just be a winner! Don't forget to click onto the Flourishes Newsletter tomorrow -- there is a BIG announcement that you won't want to miss! It's one you are going to FLIP over! ;-)

Your waterlily set is one of my faves, so knew when I read about this birthday challenge that I would use this to make a card for a dear lady in our church who turned 95 this past Thursday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY FLOURISHES! Here is my link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1432986?&cat=500&ppuser=38399

I am afraid I combined the Tuesday challenge with this one - especially as it will do for a friend who loves purple and whose birthday is coming up soon.
