Wednesday 8 Aug, 2012
Hello Blog Friends,

  Here on the Gulf Coast of Florida we have had terrible storms of rain, lightening, and thunder.  We lost power and you know that resulted in no internet service until late tonight.  So I am a little late in getting my post out.

If you were here yesterday you saw that Flourishes released to the public a Marcella Hawley set that she penned for our FLIP customers as a gift for joining our FLIP program.  Now that we are officially into a new FLIP year, it is time for a new gift for customers that make that qualifying order of just $100.00 (excludes shipping or taxes). It's time to qualify, if you have not already done so, and get that discount code for the first of each month until Aug 2014. 

 We decided to make the With Gratitude set available to the general public this year.  Yesterday's blog hop was wonderful !!  If you missed go back and take the tour--lots of inspiration, beautiful cards from very talented ladies from the Friends of Flourishes. The Timeless Tuesday post kicked off the start of the Flourishes August release! (And a chance to win it!) So check that out! .

Today, our fabulous designers are showing off a set that is fresh picked. It’s a bouquet of goodness fresh from the flower garden!
Introducing…

Freshly snipped from the garden, these herbs and florals are ready to be enjoyed. This set illustrated by Marcella Hawley features three different bouquets all designed to be set in an old fashioned mason jar for a down home feel. This 4″ by 6″ set also features two perfect all occasion sentiments as well. Wait until you see just how gorgesous this set is! If you like what you see on today’s designers’ posts, this set is available for pre-order now HERE!

Here's a look at the card I made for today.  I made a long, lean, simple card.

Here is a close up of the center frame.
