Flourishes Timeless Tuesday and FS130!!!

Howdy everyone!!!

It's Tuesday which means it's time for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!!

This week, your DH might even get excited about the challenge because it's all about hardware! And, when we say hardware we mean metal of any kind. So, let's see how creative you can get - frames, eyelets, paperclips, staples, brads - you name it!!! If it is metal, it works!!!

Please download your creations under *FTTC27* on SCS!!! Can't wait to see your creations!!!

Since I'm a girly girl - I had to use some pretty hardware - LOL!!! I used a Styled Label Holder and some Silver Brads on the bottom of my card!!!

The flower is from the beautiful Flourishes *Thank You* Set. The sentiment is from the *Strawberries* Set. I used the layout from this SFYTT Sketch.

Don't forget to check out the exciting Flourishes Anniversary news right here just in case you've missed it the other day!!!

Please stop by Cindy, Dee and Kimberly's for their take on the FTTC27 Challenge!!!

Since I missed the FS130 on Sunday - which was my sweet and super talented friend Teresa *aka va.sunshine*... I figured I'd show you the card I've made for her!!!

If you've been to Teresa's gallery you know she has some super gorgeous cards in her collection...and at the end I chose to case this one!!!

Here are the quick changes I made - different Stamp Set, different layout and colors, I added the hardware plus I changed it to a square card.

I used once again the Flourishes * Thank You* Set. The sentiment is from the Many Sentiments Set. I also used the FTTC27 - Hardware theme. The layout is from Makeesha's Sketch Challenge #11.

Have a wonderful day!!!!
