Merry Christmas

Hello everyone.  I have some exciting news and the reason I have been quiet the last week. If you visit me often you will know that I have been with Flourishes for 2 years come December and have worked my way up through the various teams during that time.  Well the other day I was asked to be on the Sr. Design team.  I was honored to be asked and said yes!    My sweet blog friend and past fellow Timeless Tuesday team member Silke just moved up to the Sr. team in the spring and now I will be joining her and the rest of the sweet and amazingly talented ladies of the Flourishes Family.  Woohoo!  With that said, it is on to the release week details....

Hi all and welcome to day one of Flourishes Sneak Peeks for its Christmas release! We are starting early because we have FIVE new sets to unveil and want to make sure you see all of them in their full glory! Get ready for a fun and festive week ahead! There is definitely something for everyone on tap this week.Today, we start with a classic Christmas image and we know that it will be a favorite for years to come!


I colored and cut out the beautifully decorated Christmas tree and added dimensional adhesive.  It is a rather large image so it did not fit on an A2 card.  This is a 5x5 square card.  I used some pretty Fancy That  bling from Nina Brackett that you can find in the Flourishes store HERE.  The cardstock is Flourishes Classic White and several of the Flourishes Copic collections were used and link listed below.

Gerber Daisy Collection
Evergreen Collection
Sunflower Collection
Poppy Collection
Water Collection

Introducing....


A beautifully adorned Christmas tree perfect for the season - that is what you get with this offering from Marcella Hawley called Trimmed With Love!
