I am so excited to bring you my first post as a Design Team Member for the Flourishes Beautiful World Tour! Thank you so much to all of you for your sweet comments on my post yesterday. Your support and encouragement are everything to me; I don’t think I can properly express how grateful I am for each and every one of you!
This is our first Tour, and for those of you who have followed Flourishes previously, you know that the first Monday of the month used to bring a new Bring Back Beautiful Challenge. As we celebrate Flourishes’ 5th Birthday, there have been some changes, and one of those is this team. Rather than being a challenge team, a few new designers were added, and now, each month you can travel the globe with us and be inspired by talent from all over the world! The team includes designers from Australia, the United States, Canada, Finland, England and Germany. Each month, one of us will be hosting the hop on the Flourishes blog, sharing our creation, maybe something about our country, and then we will send you on your way to Hop the world!
Of course, there is something in it for you as well! Instead of being challenged to play along with us, all you have to do is hop along and leave a comment on our blogs for your chance to *WIN* a free stamp set from Flourishes! You never know which country will be chosen to draw from, so make sure you comment on all the designers’ blogs by August 31st for your chance to win!
This month, Kathy is our Hostess, and our Hop is Inspired by a Song. I won’t lie… this one stumped me for a minute! The bulk of my Flourishes collection is made of up floral images – and the music I tend to listen to doesn’t really revolve around bouquets…
I don’t know about you, but I do my best thinking right when I am supposed to be going to sleep. We took the girls camping a couple of weeks ago, and the first night was incredibly rainy. There I was, squished between my two little ones (Dad lucked out and got his own tent!), the rain on the tarp keeping me awake, and it came to me…
“I’d go hungry, I’d go black and blue… I’d go crawling down the avenue. There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do to make you feel my love.”
Adele covered the Bob Dylan song “Make You Feel My Love” on her first album, and I just *love* it. It was running through my head while I was trying to fall asleep, and this line jumped out at me – a colour theme for my card!
Here is a close up of the blueberries I coloured, from the Berry Sweet set, which also includes the sentiment I used:
Thank you so much for popping in on me, and don’t forget to leave a comment for your chance to *win*, before you hop to your next stop:
Have a wonderful day!
