Happy TGIF and welcome to the Flourishes November Pre-Release Challenge!!!

November brings crisp, cool days that might find you heading into your favorite coffee shop to grab a cup of warmth, and dwell in that inviting aroma that only a cozy cafe can bring.

This month we’re inviting you to “Grab A Cup” with us on the Flourishes Senior Design Team and be inspired by this fantastic photo as you create something equally warm and inviting. 

Next week we’ll be bringing you our November edition of new Flourishes Stamps, and we can’t wait! They’re absolutely fabulous! Because we know you want a chance to win these great sets, “Grab A Cup” and be inspired by this great coffee and treats photo as you create. Play in the challenge and you could win our whole November Release! Your keyword for entering into online galleries is FLLCNOV13
