Happy Birthday Jan Marie


 

Hello Stampers~
Welcome to Flourishes first-ever Birthday Blog Hop Celebration.   
Jan Marie, the owner of Flourishes is turning another year older 
and we thought we'd celebrate!  Not just with a party and blog hop, 
but a special stamp set in honor of her day!  Let Them Eat Cake 
was designed by artist Becky Fleck with a Marie Antoinette flair and, 
just in case you wondered, it's available now HERE in the Flourishes Store!
Here's a preview of the set:
So, let's start our 'Hopping through the Decades' celebration!  
 We thought it would be fun to challenge
our Senior Design Team and Friends of Flourishes team 
to pick a decade and using our new Let Them Eat Cake set, 
be inspired in some way by that era!

Let's take a look at the 80's..  I had so much fun being inspired..
Apple computers, aqua net, feathered bangs, legwarmers, denim
jackets, The Smurfs, tupperware, neon colors, shoulder pads..
Remember all these???
Flourishes Bright card
I was reminded of the punk rocker phase with this picture.



I drew my inspiration from these
colors..










Now all you have to do is hop on through our celebration and  leave a
comment on all 14 of our designers' post this Thursday and Friday for a
chance to win this set. Once you left a comment on all 14, you just need
to leave a comment on the Flourishes Newsletter saying, "I hopped
through the decades with Jan Marie!"  We will then randomly draw 2
names on Saturday at 12 pm CST from all those who participated.
The winners will receive the Let them Eat Cake stamp set along with
some other goodies!

Friday, Feb 26th:

Happy Hopping and thanks for stopping by...

  60. Hi Dawn,

    As I was reading about the 80's, I remembered it all. And, someone who left a comment about Duran Duran, too. I thin
    k everything was listed! I was in high school in the 80's and you named it! I had purple hair for a while!

    I love your card! The colors you chose for the color block background were colors I had in my stockings! LOL
