Wisteria, Peonies and Bearded Iris -- all three of these flowers are favorites of Flourishes' founder and owner Jan Marie Caruso.

Golden grant use of iris from Flowers for Jan set, Silke. All this snow and ice in repeated storms makes the thought of iris blossoms so much more rich. Your card is a true illustration. Wow! All these team cards are just the right sentiment structure CARDS4KIDS could use at Detroit, Michigan, Children's Hospital. Rubbermaid.blogspot.com's site gives deets for Valentines ATC to A2 sized without envies to be sent directly to the Children's activity person for the family room cart which also is taken to each room by volunteers allowing patients two to eighteen years old choices for family, schoolmates, teachers, friends, or medical staff sharing Valentine thoughts and cheer. Reports of general fun all over the hospital due to the creative papercrafters of past years sending blank cards have been tear pleasers. Families and treatment children have been most blest. Pass the word to card shower CARDS4KIDS. Thanks
Keep Looking UP!
