Happy Birthday to You

Light the candles, cue the music and get ready for a little bit of birthday fun! It will SOON be a very special lady's birthday and so we rallied the troops to send some birthday wishes her way a little early! On Monday, February 25th, Jan Marie Caruso, the fearless and creative force behind Flourishes will be another year older -- what a wonderful thing to celebrate! Happy Birthday Jan Marie!  



I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
 Here's the scoop, there's a way YOU can help Jan celebrate and win some Flourishes stamps as well! HOW? We just love creative challenges here at Flourishes and so, why not usher in another one! One randomly drawn winner will get a $25 gift certificate to the Flourishes store, just for playing along!  WELL! One extra note? Jan may be the head of this company but one thing she doesn't get a ton of is happy mail from customers using her stamps? Let's change that for her birthday and flood her with some creative "love" by sending her your Berry Sweet Birthday Blog Hop creations! Here's her address so you can pop them in the mail! Jan Marie Caruso 4140 Lyric Lane Pensacola, FL 32514 I know she would love to see "in real life" what beautiful work you all do and I know it would bring a huge smile to her face! So, join us in singing her a special little birthday song! Be sure to check out all the fun and festive wishes and grab some great ideas for birthday cards along the way!  
  Thanks for stopping by and helping us with Jan Marie a wonderful and fabulous BIRTHDAY on Monday!

Love the soft colors on this card, and the sanded edges of the pink dp give it a nice vintage feel. I've been practicing my bow tying with your video tutorial, and hope to be able to tie one as nice as yours one day. ;) Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
