Let’s light the candles and strike up the music, the owner of Flourishes – Jan Marie Caruso – is celebrating a birthday and we’re helping her by getting the party started!  Why not leave some love on her blog, then stop by the Flourishes blog HERE and  start to hop on through the Flourishes team members who are honoring her special day! Happy Birthday Jan Marie!



I am so in love with the Year in Flowers 2 set.  I will have to add number 1 and 3 to my collection.  The flowers in this set are the perfect size to fit the many different Spellbinders dies.
