Happy Easter!!!

Hello my sweet stampin' friends!

I don't have a card today, but wanted to share some photo collages my co-worker Bebe Seward has taken of my oldest daughter Sarah....the photos are a combination of fun, relaxed poses as well as showing off Sarah's High School Pageant *Princess* crown :) !!!

What do you think...aren't they awesome...??? I can't wait to show you Rebecca's and Miriam's photos as well...we'll take them soon :) !!!

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Easter weekend,

                                                             Hugs, ~Silke~


Happy Good Friday!

Today I have a Flourishes card for you.....the Senior  Design Team is showing off their take on the Hello Hyacinth Set.

I decided to keep it clean and simple again......

With Spring being here, this is a perfect set to use for any of your cards or paper creations!!! 

And, want to know another fun fact? Flourishes recently added a Silhouette Cut File to match this set that you can buy it HERE!

Now it's time for some fabulous inspiration and all you need to do is hop and leave these ladies below some love in the form of a comment! I know they'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check back tomorrow for a major announcement  over on the Flourishes Blog -- one that could involve YOU! That's right! You'll just have to check back and see! Until then, Happy Stamping!

                                                           Hugs, ~Silke~

I have the pleasure of showing of an older Set called Flourishes Christian Symbols. As you can tell these images are perfect for heat embossing!!! Matter of fact I'll be giving this card to our pastor this Sunday :) .

My card came together fairly quickly...the main image was heat embossed with Silver EP onto the Spellbinder Curved Rectangle Die. The DP is from the MME Cowboy Collection....the rest of my card was embellished with some PTI Kraft Stitched Ribbon, Brown Scrapper's Floss, a Button and some Silver Pearls (retired).

Now it's time to hop on over to my sweet friend BETTY's BLOG!!!
