Flourishes April Pre-Release Challenge.....

Happy TGIF!!!

Sorry I have been so quiet, but I had to work out off town again. It's been a busy conference season and our team finally has a break till July! Before I headed out of town I had the chance to make a card....yes, it is time for a new Flourishes APRIL PRE-RELEASE Challenge!!!!




Ahhhh..... summer will be here before we know it and... that means longer days, hotter nights, sitting under the stars and soaking up the nice weather. We know the grass is just starting to green up and spring flowers haven't even really begun to see their full glory -- but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate those warmer days ahead! We're getting in the spirit of outdoor fun now and if you play along with us, you could win Flourishes' entire April release!
