Introducing Sweetness of Friendship

Happy day! 

Welcome to the first day of Flourishes Sneak Peeks for July and to this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC177. Denise is our hostess this week and her challenge is all about getting *SENTIMENTAL*. Please use a *sentiment* as the centerpiece on your card/project.

Today, we are ushering in this challenge because not only is Flourishes releasing a new single stamp set with a beautiful sentiment, we are helping Jan Marie, the owner of Flourishes launch her new blog as well? Want a peek at the new sentiment???

The stamp is called Sweetness of Friendship and it takes on the mantra of Jan Marie's new blog - a place where friends can gather to enjoy the laughter and sharing of pleasures (in creating!) The stamp set is available right now and you can check it out in the Flourishes Store right HERE!!! It's a beauty for sure!

What's even more fun? Jan Marie is giving away this stamp to the first 25 people who leave comments on today' post  over on her new blog - Jan Marie's Flourishes!!!

Here is my idea......

As you make the rounds in today's FTTC hop, you will notice that some of the designers are using the fresh picked 123 Create KitsThese kits have everything you need to create color coordinated cards with paper, ribbon and fabbo embellishments - all in one kit!!!

I'll be showing you a few more ideas the next few days...so get them while you can...they are selling like *hot potatoes*!!!  You can find them right HERE in the store.

Okay now it's your turn...we can't wait to see what you create when you put a sentiment at the center of your creation!
