 Today I will share more information about our featured set Fuji Mums

but I promised s few surprises up my sleeve this week and so with out further a do we are introducing a new Senior Design Team Member

Rebecca Edine


  Here is what she said when I asked what I could say, I am glad she is being very humble, has limited supplies but jumped in to make this debut:

Hi! I’m Rebecca Ednie, a SAHM of three boys and wife to Tim from a small town north east of Toronto Ontario Canada. I love crafting and stamping of course including sewing, calligraphy and jewelry design as well as watching movies, going to the beach, reading and photography. I love to laugh, adore my family and have a strong faith in God. I have a serious disability but I don’t let that stop me, I just make sure to take care of myself. I am thrilled to be part of the Flourishes Senior Design Team as I’ve been waiting for an opportunity like this for years. Thank you to Jan Marie for making me part of the Flourishes Team!

    She has the pleasure of leading the Flourishes blog hop today.  I will give you a preview of one of her cards  a


but the details are HERE  and so is another one showing her creative and flexibility.  I can’t wait until she has her arms filled with Flourishes products, papers, ribbons, Designer Papers.  Poke around the store if you haven’t been there in a while,  things like Color Made Easy Ribbons and Papers have expanded.  We added a new line of ribbon we call our fine silks.  The colors are perfect for all Color made Easy Papers and Copic Markers.  Fine Silks are smaller than many of our May Arts Silks but that too is growing.  It is exciting times here at Flourishes !

   I am very proud to release for your pleasure Fuji Mums by Bev Cole.  fuji-mum-set-b-watermarked

    Mums of all kind conjure up thoughts of Fall for me.  High school football games, school bands, cheer leaders, last but not least ( at least back in the day ) homecoming corsages, and the beginning of the trees colors changing.  We even have a few here in Pensacola that change color- rustling of leaves – leaves falling, blowing in the wind…on and on it is a long list, I know.  What are your thoughts about Fall?  Then there are the smells of fall.  As a cook, the scent of spices, the smell of baking, and certain foods cooking, gives my mind a whirl.  I hope I have inspired you to create with one of our new sets and get a spot on our Pinterest Board.  Today is the first day that you may purchase THIS set.  Each day of our 6 release days please leave your comments and I will put your name in the bowl for that day.  At midnight (CDT)  we will pull a name and the winner will win this set!

  Each  DAY FOLLOWING:  I will put the names of people that commented in the bowl.  The winner of the draw will get the set of the day…only one entry per day,  please.

  On Sunday I will announce one winner of all of this weeks  6 released sets!  I will draw a lucky name from all the names submitted. It could be YOU!   And still another bargain,  for the seven days Starting Sunday,  25 September to 1 October,  you can purchase the entire bundle of the 6 released sets for 10% off!

Rebecca,  lead us to the hop,  Bev take a bow for your artistry  in this new set.  Bev will lead you to the next stop on our hop.
