The Feel of Fall -- let the fun begin!

All of us at Flourishes are giddy getting ready for our September release and we can't wait for the fun to begin!

In a little less than a week - we will usher in the 'Feel of Fall' and will unveil a handfull of new stamp sets that are just perfect for this time of year! Wait until you see them! While some are sure to create that perfect homespun charm, another one-of-a-kind set urges us to band together and "Fight Like Girls!" We'll kick off the sneak peeks next Wednesday on the Flourishes Newsletter -- and you won't want to miss a minute of the action! Each day will bring a chance to win the set of the day!

But first, a chance to win all FOUR of our new releases! Just make a card using this sketch for our Feel of Fall Challenge! Edited to add: You can use Flourishes stamps (if you have them) but, if not -- we'd love for you to play along!!


Need a little creative inspiration? How about checking out these fabulous creations from our even more fabulous Senior Design Team!

We hope you make time for play time! All you need to do is link your creation onto our new Mr. Linky link box below - click on the box and a second box will pop up, add your URL linking to your actual blog post and... you're in the running! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCSEPT. Remember though, in order to be in the running, you have to link up your card by clicking on the Mr. Linky logo. The contest closes Friday, September 11th at 4:00 PM CST. The winner will be announced during our Power Hour Release Party which kicks off that night at 9PM Central time!



Good luck and we'll see you back here Sunday when we unveil our latest designer to be "In the Limelight!!" We love this designer's creative talent and we know you'll love Sundays on the Flourishes Newsletter watching her in action! We'll see you then!

Beautiful cards, gals. I love how you do the bows with the ribbon over the top and then the bow. Do you just attach ribbon to the card first and then use a glue dot to hold the bow in place? Very pretty.
