Hello Friends

I hope you have had a great holiday.  I am sending you prayers and thoughts for the new year 2017.

My holiday has not been so great.  I fell on Dec 13th and broke my left femur- decimated it would be a better description.  I slipped and fell leaving our local seafood market.  It took 2 men to get me into our car and we went straight to the hospital.  It was determined that I had to have major surgery.  A steel rod was inserted into my thigh bone-femur- from knee cap to hip bone.  I spent the next 7 days recovering in the hospital.  I am now home with skilled nurse care.  I have a nurse once a week and four days of very tough physical therapy.  I have been told it will take 8 months for  a complete heal. The brace  I wear hurts more than it should. I will a bone density test soon.

I am excited that Terre Fry will go to CHA and be our representative. She will display our stamps we have designed through June of the year.  We will have a new artist to replace Lauren Pope and we are looking for a 2nd artist as Bev Cole is no longer on out team.

Keep your eye out for our January release.  Love is definitely in the air!  The future looks very bright and we will move back to Volusion with a beautiful store.  you have seen some of the changes on our store front and in our blog.  The final details should be complete before our January release. It will by far more responsive than our temporary site.

So have a great day and have a year filled with blessings.

Until later, Ciao

From Our House to Your’s A Merry Christmas

2016-12-09-11-08-36-1

From our house to your’s the entire Flourishes, LC family wishes you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a bright New Year!

Hello everyone!  Happy Saturday!  It’s Gloria here to share a Christmas card  with you using the Winter Blooms stamp set from Flourishes LC.  This week the Friends of Flourishes Design Team theme is Christmas so I made this Christmas card.

To create this card, I:

1) Colored the stamped card stock using Copic markers and then fussy cut them.

2) Mounted all elements as shown to a top-fold card base using double-sided tape, added sequins, twine and decorative tapes.
