Sweet Peas for Jan Marie!

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! Hop on over to her place on the web HERE and wish her a Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday Jan Marie!

I used one of my favorite sets, Sweet Peas, for my card, and did the coloring with Distress Inks by Rangers. I tried to make it look like an old polaroid photo, and the Spellbinders dies were perfect for the job:)
I also added some photocorners.

I know that the other Flourishes team members have a little something for Jan Maries birthday too. And If you haven`t already been through the list, start here:

You`re just my cup of tea!

Finally Friday!

When I recieved this cute little tea-cup image from Serendipity Stamps, I knew I wanted to make a tea-bag holder. I don`t drink tea very often since I`m more of a coffee-lover... But this is such a cute little gift for those who loves tea:)

I stamped the image with Archival Ink Coffee, and colored it with Distress Inks. Papers from Making Memories. I also stamped this cute sentiment inside.

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by!

You`re Bound to Bloom...

Happy Thursday!

I`m not sure what to call these multi-color flowers... I just knew I needed a little color in between all the white SNOW - LOL! Even though I love white Paperwhites , it had to be something colorful today. I`m longing for spring :)

I stamped and masked the image three times to achieve this flower scene, and did the coloring with Le Plume Markers. I paired the Paperwhites with a sentiment from the
Hearts and Flowers set by Flourishes.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
