Lace Heart

Oh My !!! I am so excited to share this with you!!! I am so excited that I am almost combustible :) I have been given the honor to be in the "Customer Spotlight" at http://www.Flourishesnewsletter.blogspot.com (one of these days I will figure out how to make this a shortcut) What a wonderful pedestal to put me on! The ladies at Flourishes,llc are so very kind and from the very beginning with my first purchase, I have been treated royally by each of them. The products that they promote are excellent and if you look at my blog you will see that most of my cards have been made with their stamps, ribbon, cardstock, and paper. The packaging is first class as is the shipping. I have had the opportunity to talk by phone to Jan Marie, Nancy and Sharon (the owners) and I can tell you that they are gracious beyond. I invite everyone who visits my blog to check out this fabulous stamping store at http://www.flourishes.org/ (Can anyone tell me how to short cut this stuff?)

The card above was made with Flourishes "Lace Heart." The base is SU's Basic Grey. I added Scarlett's Letter Paper that I received as a gift from Flourishes. I then added the ribbon that I bought at A.C. Moore. The heart was layered on Scarlett's Letter paper and paper from a paper bag that I bought at the Dollar Store. I used Versamark Ink and heat embossed the heart with red embossing glitter and added the Swarovski Crystals.

Once again ~ Flourishes ~ Thank you !!!

That heart is fabulous and you did a wonderful job with it on this card. Congrats on being in the customer spotlight - that's awesome!

Maria said...

YOU GO! That is so awesome and your cards are beautiful! They do have some great stuff over there.

Adding link: highlight what you want to add the light to (for example just say Flourishes and highlight it) click the 6th icon in on the toolbar in the post option. It looks like a little world sort of. In the you can copy the HTML address for flourishes straight from your address bar and paste. Check it out see if that makes sense. If not let me know and I will send you a picture.

Yeah!!!! So, so happy for you sis!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by my blog and commenting so often. It means *so* much! It's just been so hectic having 4 young children during the holidays!

And now that it's the New Year, I'm trying SO hard to get my stampin' room organized, which means not very much stampin' time!!!

I've been so impressed with the Flourishes sets! They are so elegant and lovely! I'm sure they luv ya for the plug!!!

Have a wonderful day!

Lorraine said...

Velta, this card is fabulous! and i so love your new blog banner. I have always wanted to order from flourishes but the shipping seemed to be high to me. it was over $5 to ship one item, so i never ordered. oh well.
the short cut...you know that little tool bar you have when you are posting that looks like a globe? highlight the name of the stamp company then click on the globe image, a window will pop up and you can add their website address. let me know if this works for you!

I love the banner! I want one. I am so proud of all your accomplishments. You deserve it. I have loved your art since first laying eyes on the first card. You just keep getting better with each new project. I really love the way the photo of the red card with the feather looks on the Flourishes newsletter. I knew you could do it, your cards are "simply elegant" just like you.
