Happy Birthday Jan!

Light the candles, cue the music and get ready for a little bit of birthday fun! It will SOON be a very special lady's birthday and so we rallied the troops to send some birthday wishes her way a little early!   On Monday, February 25th, Jan Marie Caruso, the fearless and creative force behind Flourishes will be another year older -- what a wonderful thing to celebrate!   So, we've asked Flourishes' designers from all of our teams to join us to help make this day super special with a
BerrySweetBlogHop
Here's the scoop, there's a way YOU can help Jan celebrate and win some Flourishes stamps as well! HOW? We just love creative challenges here at Flourishes and so, why not usher in another one! One randomly drawn winner will get a $25 gift certificate to the Flourishes store, just for playing along!
Here is my birthday card for Jan.  Sending along wonderful birthday wishes for a wonderful lady!  I hope you have a fantastic Day Jan Marie!!

I stamped the beautiful hat from Feminine Charm on Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  It was colored with Copic markers and shaded with Prismacolor pencils and oms.  I used Classic Rectangles Large and Scalloped Rectangles from Spellbinders for the image and just hand trimmed the squares and mats all from patterned paper from MME Miss Caroline Dolled Up.   I used some twine with a flower and button to embellish.  The sentiment is from the Inside & Out Just Because set stamped on a hand cut banner with a tiny Prima Crystal Heart.  
Jan may be the head of this company but one thing she doesn't get a ton of is happy mail from customers using her stamps? Let's change that for her birthday and flood her with some creative "love" by sending her your Berry Sweet Birthday Blog Hop creations! Here's her address so you can pop them in the mail! Jan Marie Caruso 4140 Lyric Lane Pensacola, FL 32514 I know she would love to see "in real life" what beautiful work you all do and I know it would bring a huge smile to her face! So, join us in singing her a special little birthday song!  Be sure to check out all the fun and festive wishes and grab some great ideas for birthday cards along the way!  
Thanks for stopping by and helping us with Jan Marie a wonderful and fabulous BIRTHDAY on Monday!
