FLLC FOCUS FRIDAY AND SOME *ME* TIME......

Happy TGIF and a happy hello from St. Louis, MO!!!

We took a little road trip up to Missouri and finally had the chance to stop in Nashville as well! What a fun town!!! I wish it would not be so hot, but I guess that's part of the summer right??? I'm ready to head back home and visit our beaches :) !!!

How is the weather in your neck of the woods? Is that summer heat getting you down? Well today the Flourishes Senior Design Team has a treat for you focussing on two beautiful summery sets - Beach Life and Seaside Life, because we know that this time of year makes you long for those cool ocean breezes. 

Here is my take on the Beach Life Set......and HERE is another card I've recently created with the same set!



Today, I'm also the *FEATURED DESIGNER* over on the Flourishes Blog...go and check it out!!!

It's also your lucky day...I'll be giving away TWO STAMP SETS from Flourishes...you can pick any sets you like!!!  All you have to do is... tell me *where is your favorite vacation destination*??? and I will select one lucky winner by Thursday, July 4, 2013 - 6 PM EST!!! Good luck!!!

As always please don't forget to head on over and visit...
Have a fabulous weekend and I'll see you next week :) !!!

Guten Morgen liebe Silke,

Deine Karte ist ein Traum, dieses Set ist doch wirklich sehr verlockend.

Bei den Palmen muss ich sofort an unsere Urlaub in der Karibik denken, Grenada ist nachwievor unsere Lieblingsinsel.

Herzliche Grüße und ein schönes Wochenende
wünscht Dir
Anke

JUST BEAUTIFUL SILKE!!!!!!! :) (I DREAMING of the Sea & Sand!) I LOOOOOOOOVE IT!!!!!!:) You weren't too far from me when you went to Nashville!!!!! :) Vacations ARE NICE!!!!!!! :)

Our favorite place to "vacation" is called ROSCOE VILLAGE! It's a little Canal Towne in Ohio. The Village is SO NICE! All these little shops to visit... Many of the shops have things to sell that were TIME PERIOD APPROPRIATE! There's even a Canal Boat to ride! The Apple Butter Stir'n Festival is THE BEST! Vendors come in & you have even MORE to look at! And even MUSIC for the time period!

Hi Silke! Great beachy card - LOVE that ribbon. We had a wonderful holiday once on the Atherton Tableland - he he! bet you don't know where that is!! It's in northern Queensland Australia and has lots and lots of amazing waterfalls to see. We hiked in to see a waterfall that we could only hear (found it) but had trouble finding the car when we left! Have fun in the spotlight this week.
