New Home

Summer’s here and the time is right for…. making easy breezy lemon squeezy cards! When warm weather hits, many of us want to be outside and having some fun in the sun, but we can’t give up our love of card making! This challenge is all about making simple cards with a summer time flair.

So, join us! Make an easy breezy card and either leave a comment on the Flourishes Newletter HERE or upload to SCS using the keyword fllcjune. If you play along you could win all three of our new releases to be unveiled starting next Wednesday! The deadline to enter is Friday, June 12th at 5 PM Eastern. We'll announce the lucky winner during our release party. Check the Flourishes Newsletter for details!


For my card, I used a cream background, then layered some kraft along with some bright designer paper from Basic Grey called Lime Rickey.  We are in the process of moving into our new home, so I used the bird nest image and "new home" sentiment from the Tweet Home stamp set from Flourishes.  To finish off the card I tied a bow using some yellow satin ribbon and attached a button, using some May Arts twine.  Did you know Flourishes sells the twine by the roll?  I have a roll and I LOVE it, thats how I attach my buttons, in case you were wondering lol. This card was quick and easy to make.  I hope you decide to play along, this months stamps are just AWESOME, and who doesn't like free stamps?  You can't win if you don't play.  Have a wonderful weekend!!

Great card! Love that kraft paper!

I so understand about moving. During our last move, our son Bryan was in the hospital. Hubby was with him and me and the children moved everything except our large tv and the piano. Our family at that time consisted and me and hubby and 11 children still at home. There was tons of stuff to pack, move and unpack. It felt like we would never get things totally done! But, in the end, it was a good move for us, and I love our "new" home!
