It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday (FTTC35)! It is the last Tuesday of the month and it is a privilage and an honor to be the guest host this month!   I am challenging you to extend your creations outside the frame. Whether you want to make a dimensional piece or use subtle cut lines, the look is to go beyond the frame you choose for your card. We can not wait to see what you create!!!

The beautiful image is from Flourishes Cottage House set! It was stamped several times, colored with copics then cut apart and assembled for this out of the frame challenge!

Be sure to check out the other
Friends of Flourishes Blog Team Designers
to see what they created for you this week.

Good morning all! I haven't been blogging lately due to painting (ugg) and my brother is visiting from South Carolina (fun) We have been sightseeing and eating at some really yummy fun places!

I made this for my darling granddaughters birthday! When she was about this age we were planting flowers together and she decided she wanted her very own container of flowers! Well of course what ever the *princess* wants (within reason), Nana gets it for her! It also fits today's IC196 challenge! Thanks Lori!

The sweet Sugar Nellie image was colored using Flourishes *The Copic Collection* Crocus (V01-V05-V06-V09) and Spring Greens (YG00-YG03-YG06), cut out and popped up! The flowers are the top portion of a wheelbarrow filled with flowers (Santa Rosa, CA.) The clouds are sponged in using template (Mothermark) and bashful blue ink! The decorative frame is Spellbinders Die Cut!

Hope you all have a fabulous Labor Day weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
