Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ Christmas in July!!!

Ho, ho, ho everyone!!!

That's right.....we are celebrating *Christmas in July* over at the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC74!!! Maki is our host and she challenged us to this fun theme!!! No explanation necessary....just have fun and make something festive!!!! While Flourishes stamps are not required, if you have them, by all means use them! We would love to see what you create.

I was in the Christmas Spirit...he,he,he...and made actually two cards....My first card was designed with the Mojo146 Sketch. Watch out this is a longer post, but hopefully worth it at the end *grin*!?!?!



Here is my second card.....



On both cards I used the same floral Winter Bouquet Set. The sentiment on my first card is from the Dove and Holly Set and on the second card I used the Holiday Greetings Set. Each image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. Both cards were bedazzled with lots of Dazzling Diamond Glitter :) !!! 

Well are you ready for the fun part??? You can't celebrate *Christmas in July* with out presents right??? This is your chance to win a brand spankin' new Flourishes Set from the upcoming July Release ~ Sneak Peaks will start next week ~ plus some other goodies!!! One winner has their free pick of ONE new fabulous July Set and let me tell you, you will love them all...!!! All you have to do is leave a comment and I will pick the winner next Monday evening and annouce it with my next Flourishes card next Tuesday!!! I will put your name into a hat twice if you play along in todays FTTC74!!!!
