Flourishes New Release Day One



It's the best time of the month once again... Flourishes New Release Week!  We're kicking off the festivities today with a beautiful new stamp set... Mother's Words of Wisdom.  This is a wonderful stamp set, perfect for Mother's Day coming up soon but as luck would have it I have use for it right now as my beautiful mother celebrates a birthday this coming Sunday!  So this card will go in the mail today and be on the way to my Mom!

The flowers on my wreath were colored with Copic markers and I cut out the wreath with the largest Nestabilities Standard Circle die.
 Along with the new stamp set, there's also a new 123 Create Kit available this week, that I've used on my card.  The Glitz paper pad is full of beautiful patterns, and you will LOVE the perfectly matched ribbons, lovely stick pins, and the fun Candi dots to go with the papers!

Would you like to win this set?  All you need to do is figure out...


One of the ladies on the link list below is the Mystery Blogger, and will be picking a name from the comments left on her blog post today.  We don't know who it is, so the more blogs you leave comments on, the better are your chances to win.



There will be more chances to win starting later today with the first Noontime Challenge, and another challenge tomorrow.  And don't forget about the Pre-Release Challenge still going on, as well as the Timeless Tuesday challenge!

Thanksabunch!

Beautiful card--great coloring and papers.

Lou said...

Not only are the colors you chose wonderfully blended, but your shadowing is spot-on too. I would be happy to win even one stamp, but a whole set, I shold do(if I could) the Happy Dance 4 a week!
I'm new to all of this trying to stay out of the BLACK-HOLE so I'm trying to use this form of ART's Craft to Stay as WHOLE as POSSIBLE.
So Please forgive me if my ?? brings U discomfort I'm not above begging, so i ask, do you have any stamps in Ur vast collection which
U wouldn't mind passing-it-forward?
Yes I'm begging 4 stamps U no longer need/use?

Monica said...

Greta said...
