In the Limelight!

Where does time go? It seem like just yesterday I was introducing the fun and fabulous Jenny Gropp as our Limelight Designer. We watched her creative projects sprout up here on the Flourishes Newsletter and then... bam! Her time was up! We want to give a big and warm thanks to Jenny for sharing her time and wonderful talents with us!

And with December comes a new talented designer to grace the Limelight stage! This designer is one that hails from Norway and she's one that I have been watching create for about a year now. I am honestly in awe of her talent!

Introducing.....
To give you a little taste of Yvonne's style, I thought I'd share some of my favorite creations that she whipped up using Flourishes stamps!


I absolutely love her unique flair and we are sure you will too when you stop by each Sunday in December to see what she's has created! We asked Yvonne to share a little bit about herself to get ready for her big debut!
I think I`ll just start with some facts... I`m 32 years old, have a wonderful, supportive husband and three awesome kids. I work as a nurse in a hospital and love the challenges I meet there every day. But when I`m not working you`ll find me hanging out with my family or playing around in my tiny craft room!

I discovered the world of paper crafting about two years ago, when I decided to make a family album. Oh my, I was overwhelmed by all the products and ideas! So I started out as a scrapbooker, but shortly after I discovered card making - and I was completely bitten by the bug! I loved being creative as a child, and finding that side of me as an adult has been such a joy.

When Julie asked me to be the Flourishes Limelight designer for December, I wrote back to her saying, "How could I ever say no to that!?" After all, Flourishes was the very first stamp company I completely fell in love with. I just love the classic, timeless images! So I hope you`ll pop back in tomorrow and have a peek!
We hope you do pop back! In the meantime, if you want to see more of Yvonne's creations, all you need to do is visit her home on the web ~ Yvonne's place.
Until tomorrow!
