A Season That Sparkles... Day 2!

Welcome to day two of Flourishes sneak peeks! Today we take a step back in time to honor one of the worlds' oldest Christmas carols.....

Introducing.....


This gorgeous set drawn by the ever-so-talented Marcella Hawley is named after a hymn that has been around for upwards of one thousand years! I didn't know this but, way back when, the druids used holly as a symbol of the winter solstice. Today's offerings feature a classic look complete with two gorgeous turtle doves!

As you make your way around to see what the designers created, you'll see there are plenty of artistic interpretations of these beautiful birds! They're grey, brown, blue and even pink! :-) So, fly along and take a peek!

Hi, Next month I am turning 60 and don't feel it until I say it. These doves bring back memories of my grandmother's house when I was a little girl. I would wake to the sound of the turtle doves. Now that I am old, I feed the birds and guess who comes first...yes, the turtle doves. The stamp set is beautiful and the artist did a beautiful job with so much detail. Such sweet memories!
Thanks
Glenda
