The Fresh Picked Fun Begins!

Welcome fans of Flourishes to another fabulous few days of sneak peeks! It all starts today!

I can't count how many stampers I know that split their time between paper crafting and gardening when the warm months hit. And this new February release takes to heart those stamper's passions!

Introducing....



This set drawn by Flourishes' illustrator Marcella Hawley is downright whimsical! It is quaint and heartwarming and it calls to mind all the things we love about gardening -- that we can take time to enjoy the quiet moments and share the beauty cultivated with others! This darling set features 7 focal images and 6 different sentiments that you can mix and match. Oh, the potential!

Want to see what the Senior Design Team created in their hand stamped gardens?

And, of course, if you would like to win this set, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post. We'll draw the winner's name and post it with tomorrow's sneak peek!

While we have your attention, here's some other fun happenings hitting Flourishes this week!

  • Mark your calendar for our Power Hour Release Party - the fun and freebies hit Friday at 9 PM Central in our Member Company Forum on SCS. We chat, share samples and you have an opportunity to win FREE stamps! And then, the stamps will be in the Flourishes store right after the party wraps - FUN!
  • If you want to win the entire new release, why not give our 'What's Your Cup of Tea?' challenge a try? The contest closes Friday at 5 Pm Eastern. Just click HERE to find out all the details!

Thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow, we'll get together and share some tea with tomorrow's sneak peeks, how about that? Yep, that was a hint! :-)

See you then!
