Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

Happy Tuesday you all!!!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!! This week Cindy Haffner is our host. If you follow the Flourishes Blog you already know that we are showcasing *Shimmerz* this entire week!!!

So, Cindy is challenging us to get out our little pots of *Shimmerz*, shake them up, and use them on our cards. If you do not have any Shimmerz, no problem!!! All we ask is that you add some different shimmer and shine to your cards. We cannot wait to see what you create!!!

I couldn't hold back and had to use my yummy-licious *Strawberries Set* again :) If you own this fabulous Set already I know you will agree with me that it is so much fun to color!!!

Now - I have a little surprise for you......I have one brand spankin' new jar of the *Angel Wings* Shimmerz up for grabs......if you want to win it - leave me a comment!!! I will pick a winner this upcoming Thursday about noon EST!!!

Please download your creations under the keyword *FTTC25*!!!

This is another stunner, Silke! Love the Bitty Box paper (mine arrived yesterday!!) and gingham ribbon and your bow with the button is just perfect.

The popped up elements of the main image are just the right touch. Can't wait to get my strawberries inky! So far I've only used the basket from this set.

Oh, and don't enter me in your drawing, as I already have a pot of Angel Wings Shimmerz - great stuff!

This card is gorgeous! My 6 year old son would love it since his favorite fruit is strawberries!

I've always wanted to try Shimmerz but never got around to ordering a bottle. It would be so cool to win one. Thanks for the chance!
