Happy Birthday Christine!

IT'S A SURPRISE PARTY!!! Grab a handful of confetti, a bright balloon and come along for a fun birthday blog hop to celebrate a special birthday for our dear friend, Christine Okken!  One thing about birthdays, is that you always hope to spend time with those you care about and that's why we're here!  At Flourishes, we're just one big family... so we just wanted to celebrate a wonderful day with one of our loved ones.

Even though we're a day early, we'd like to say...


Join along with members of the Flourishes family today and share some fabulous birthday inspirations, many happy celebratory birthday wishes and maybe even a slice of cyber cake.

Dear Christine, I wish you days full of colors, rainbows and happiness! May your days be filled with love and laughter and may you continue to inspire us all with your gorgeous and breathteaking creations! Here is to many many happy years ahead! Have a beautiful birthday!

The first thing that came to my mind seeing the colorful cupcake picture was to make something vibrant and colorful. And the can with tulips from the "April Showers" stamp set was perfect for the occasion. The sentiment is from "Garden Picks" stamp set. I colored them with aquarel color pencils and aquabrush and used some leftover patterned papers.

In honor of Christine's birthday celebration, we're giving away a special birthday present or two of our own!  Hidden among the Design Team's blogs today is a Mystery Blogger.
