Botanicals and Birdhouses

Flourishes never ceases to amaze me with wonderful things each month.  I feel so blessed to work with them!  As you probably know they've created new 1 2 3 Kits each month that include paper, ribbon and embellishments together in a very affordable ensemble, so the guesswork is taken out of creating and you can put together something really beautiful.

You probably also know these kits are selling like hotcakes!  And we're so glad you like them!  A new kit called Gabrielle started yesterday (See HERE),  and it even has some gorgeous add-ons to this kit too!   But I have another sample of the last kit  - Botanical to show you today.

Ok, side note, have you noticed that some of the pictures on blogger are showing up blurry?  I just can't understand it?!  It's crisp when I edit them...and then when I put them on the blog they don't have the right definition...sigh - it's really frustrating!...but if you scroll down the closeup will show you better detail.



This set, Friendly Reminders is still one of my all time favourites from Flourishes, and it's this bird house that I especially love :) coloring it is really fun.  I paired it up with the beautiful Prima paper in the kit, Botanical and the embellishments from the kit as well.  And colored up the image with Copics to match the gorgeous paper. 



I've sponged the Beaded Oval Nestabilities, and the Ribbon Tag Die with some Baja ink, it really softens the effect.  Did you see that all the new Spellbinders are in the Flourishes store?  Some very delicious ones :)  I just got my order the other day!  SO exciting.

Alright gang, I hope to spend a good Tuesday day off with my husband.  Hoping this finds you having a good day too!

Other bloggers have mentioned the blurry photos, too. It looks fine to me, actually. Frustrating for you, though. Beautiful card! I LOVE the paper!

Absolutely stunning card! I love the soft blue with all the pearls.

I haven't had any issues with photos, but I have been having problems with paragraph spacing being taken out so I have had to to into HTML and manually add the spacing.
