Julieicious Blog Hop!

How could we not celebrate today?  Huh?  It's Julie Koerber's Birthday!  And as our fearless DT Leader, and invaluable Flourishes Go-To-Girl for everything - honestly she deserves to be celebrated.  We are beyond blessed to have her.  And her life is a gift to the world, she gives so much to it :)  I also feel very blessed to call her friend.

So today, the many Girls of Flourishes -  from the Senior DT, the Timeless Tuesday Girls, to the Bring Back Beautiful Team are joining together for a little Blog Hop in honor of Julie.  Enjoy my friend, we all love you!


I pulled out this beautiful set from Flourishes that was this years FLIP Program Incentive Set.  I remember when Julie and I first talked about the proof for this set and our jaws both dropped at how beautiful it was.  That Marcella, she never disappoints in her illustrations!   Plus I love this particular sentiment for Julie.  It suits her perfectly.   Inside I did stamp Happy Birthday too :)

I colored up the little bell-flowers with Copics:



Plus a little BV0000, BV00, V25, B0000, B00

I created a window in my DP (MME's A Beautiful Life), using a Spellbinder's Labels Twenty Die, then framed that out with Floral Flourishes, and Fair Aisle Border Petites, and the sentiment with Holiday Tags.  Accents are Prima Crystals  - Fall, and some beautiful ribbon and twine.  Finished card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.  


So, to continue on in this sweet little hop in celebrating Julie....here's the master list :)

Ok, now you've got me crying Ms. Christine -- thanks a lot!! LOL! I'm blessed to call YOU friend and I'll never forget the fellowship our families shared - I got to see the "whole" Christine - talented artist, mom, wife and lover of Christ. You are the best!!! I have to warn you though, now that we're friends, you are going to have a tough time getting rid of me!!! :-)
