Hello and welcome to September Flourishes Beautiful World Tour!!
Once again, it's time to get those passports ready, grab a cup of coffee and prepare for take off as once again we prepare to travel the world and be inspired by talented girls from all parts of the globe! A big thank you to everyone who traveled the globe with us last month and stamped our passports (left comments), we were thrilled to have you join us on the maiden flight!!
If you do a little globetrotting with us and stamp our passports (leave us a comment), you could WIN A FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!! The catch is, you don't know which country is going to be this month's vacation spot (chosen blog) so leave a comment on each one by SEPTEMBER 30th for your chance to win.
If you've jetted in from England from Meredith's blog then you have arrived at the right destination. If you haven't, perhaps you'd like to start your journey back in Florida at the Flourishes Blog so you don't miss any of the inspiration along the way!!
This month the hostess is Anne-Elise, and we've been challenged to Remember our Friends! Where would we be without our friends? We laugh together and share our dreams, and when things are hard, we want to be there for them or be a shoulder to cry on when they grieve. Today we remember those friends with Sympathy, Missing You, Thinking of You or even Wishing You Were Here cards and perhaps we'll even have a special story to tell you about those friends that have inspired us along the way.
I inked up the Hydrangea set, for my card, and the sentiment from Pears. It's a sort of my personal affirmation, since I learned through the recent years' experiences that it takes hope and belief, and there is truly nothing impossible. It really does work, as soon as we allow ourselves to believe that it will happen. Cool, huh? Makes you think...
I coloured the flowers with the Raspberry Collection and the leaves with Evergreen Collection:
I distressed all pieces on the card with Pumice Stone Distress ink. The paper comes from My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline collection. The die cutting includes Labels Two used for the hydrangeas, and Back To Basics Tags for the sentiment. I added some burlap and string in coordinating colour, Kaisercraft lace and a couple of buttons.
I combined two challenges on this card - ISSC31 sketch and PDCC147 colours:
