A Flourish Birthday Hop

Welcome to Flourishes first-ever Birthday Blog Hop Celebration.

GetAttachment.aspx

Jan Marie, the owner of Flourishes is turning another year older and we thought we'd celebrate! --Not just with a party and blog hop, but a special stamp set in honor of her day!

We hope you've enjoyed our Hopping Through the Decades Celebration! Today features 7 more talented designers. If you're just now tuning in, be sure to start at the beginning here!

Eat Cake hop

Now I bet a lot of you have been reminiscing and having a little giggle too. Who could forget the leg warmers of the 80’s? How about the TV shows like 90210 or the A-Team?

Well, we are continuing our mini hop today starting with Dawn Burnworth, who is ready to remember those big hair days when Aqua Net ruled!

We thought it would be fun to challenge our Senior Design Team and Friends of Flourishes team to pick a decade and using our new Let Them Eat Cake set, be inspired in some way by that era!

My Era is 2000's!!! I was inspired by all the Gold and Black from that Era!!

Remember, you can win our new Let Them Eat Cake set drawn by artist Becky Fleck. All you need to do is leave a little love on our designer's blogs.

If you comment on all 14 posts in the hop, come back to Fridays post on the blog and leave a message saying"I hopped through the decades with Jan Marie!" We will then randomly draw 2 names on Saturday at 12 pm CST from all those who participated. The winners will receive the Let them Eat Cake stamp set along with some other goodies!

I hope you came from Latisha Blog and that you will hop on over to see what Laura has in store for you!!

Thanks for Hopping by!!

Hugs CindyXXOO

Hi Cindy~~

I love the shape of this card.

Black and this shade of Gold was a "power suit" I owned! I like how you detailed the card by using paper piercing!
