In the Limelight!

With a new month and a new year, comes the promise of a whole new array of talented designers to grace the pages of the Flourishes Newsletter in the 'Limelight.' December we were very lucky to have the ever-so-talented Yvonne Hagane here with us. She wowed us with her use of Spellbinders and taught us all a thing or two about color. Thanks Yvonne!

This month, we have a bright and sparkly person that I've been watching create ever since I started this little thing I call blogging! She is as sweet as can be and is equally as talented! Let's give a warm welcome to............

Judy is one of those people that you feel like you've known forever just because of her warm personality. You might know her as 'Joy in a JAR' or have seen her work on Splitcoast. What I love about Judy's work is her wonderful balance in all of her card layouts. She's not predictable and because of it, her cards always have that unique look to them with a beautiful mix of embellishments, texture and flair!

See what I mean? Here are a few of my favorite Flourishes creations! This card made with the Nasturtiums set just screams class and style!

I love the colors Judy used for this Patriotism on Parade card. Not your typical red, white and blue and because of it, this card bursts with creativity....
And, my last favorite is this beauty that Judy created with the Poppy Patch set. The color is to die for and again, isn't this layout fabulous?
Judy will take center stage starting next Sunday, January 9th! To get ready for the big day, I asked her to share a little bit about herself!

My name is Judith Rozema and I live in Central Nebraska with my husband of 27 years, my high school junior daughter, 2 dogs, and a water turtle. I also have a son, who is a college senior and attends school as a Jazz Trumpet major in North Carolina. I teach elementary music part-time, and spend the rest of my time stamping and directing musicals at the community theater.

Currently I design for Hambo Stamps and Rubber Stamp Tapestry I am one of five rotating hostesses for the Splitcoaststampers Friday Limited Supplies Challenge.

I was simply thrilled when Julie contacted me about being the Limelight Designer for January. I love this company and the creative team behind it! Thank you so much for this opportunity!
Well Judy, I am thinking the honor and pleasure is all ours! Check back next Sunday for Judy's debut!
