Happy Birthday Jan Marie!

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......

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!

So on to my Birthday wishes...

I felt that the colorful bouquet would be a perfect choice for this special occasion so I chose to make a card with Garden Picks. I colored flowers in fresh blue and red with aquarel color pencils and a waterbrush. I added a sentiment from Gerbera Daises Stamp Set.

Dear Jan Marie... May Your day be filled with Joy and Laughter as you are stepping into another year of life and may your each and every day be full of Love and Blessings and a sweet memory to remember and to cherish! I wish you all the best! Happy Birthday! Thank you for everything and for the opportunity to be a part of an incredible Flourishes Family.

One extra note? 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 having a wonderful and fabulous BIRTHDAY on Monday!
