Celebrate! Oldies and Goodies!

Well, there is a lot to celebrate today — both old and good — LOL!!!

I am the Oldie!!! It’s my birthday today, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!

And Flourishes offers the Goodies!!! Today is the grand opening of the Flourishes Member Company Forum at SCS. You can check it out here. You’ll find a thread offering some special prices on certain items and free shipping on certain orders. I’m sure there are going to be a lot of fun things in the works, so stay tuned so you don’t miss out!!!

Today is also the day I had planned to post some Oldies from my SCS Gallery for you to see, but in light of the fact that we are celebrating Flourishes becoming a new Member Company at SCS, I thought I would post some of my very first cards done with Flourishes very first sets — Cake Decorating 101 and Flourished Words. Now, I don’t have any details here for you today, only the photos, but I want you to realize that all of these cards were made with Cake Decorating 101 which is, of course, a cake set!!! Look carefully and you can easily see that both the lampand the hat on the stand are made using the basic cake and different cake pedestals. I had so much fun with that set!!! I will include my SCS link to each card which will give you some detail as to supplies, etc. if you are interested. (Please note – if some of you click on some of the links and they don’t seem to work for you, it’s because I think 1 or 2 of these cards were uploaded into the Dare to Get Dirty Challenge last July, and I believe they will only appear to Fan Club Members. To learn about Fan Club Membership, click here.) OK, here they are:


Company’s Coming!


Lily Kate Birthday Cake


Millinery 101


Is This a Cake?

I have a busy day today teaching classes and I want to pop in and see what is happening in the Flourishes Member Company Forum as well!!! Maybe I’ll see you over there!!! I should be back tomorrow with a new upload — thanks for stopping in!!!

    I know I am late wishing you a wonderful abudantly blessed Birthday but better late than never ;-). You are the greatest inspiration ever. Most of the time you are for the quick and easy, but your cards look nothing like they are quick and easy but you take the intimidation out ouf people. Your style is breathtaking and I am very grateful that I am on your e-mail list. It is like opening a present when I get the e-mail updates :D.
    Thanks Sharon!!!
