The Feel of Fall..... day 1!

I love this time of year - when reds, rustic orange, deep plum and golden yellows take center stage. It's a time when wreaths are hung on doors across the country and kids can be found jumping in leaf piles left and right. We've captured the essence of both of these seasonal favorites.

Introducing....




And....

Both of these sets were masterfully drawn by our resident artist Marcella Hawley. Each one in a style that only Marcella can do! They richly define the feel of the season and are a delight to the eye. Wait until you see what our design team created with these beautiful sets! Both the Falling Leaves and the Seasonal Wreaths sets will hit the Flourishes store right after our Power Hour Release Party Friday night! Woo-hoo! So, mark your calendars! The party starts at 9 Central right HERE on the Flourishes forum over on Splitcoast!

The Senior Design Team created some gorgeous projects that truly capture the beauty of this time of year! So, be sure to hop on over and see!

Super cards from super stamps from super creative folks. I love stamps that have a great range of uses. I'm just excited to think of all the fantastic ideas I have running through my brain. I'm seeing fall, winter & spring creations zipping through the gray matter. I need an outlet for all those ideas. Can I win these please?
