Berry Sweet Birthday Blog Hop

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 make this day super special, with a.....
Here's the scoop, there's a way YOU can help Jan celebrate, and you can win some Flourishes stamps as well! HOW?  We just love creative challenges here at Flourishes and so, why not usher in another one!  One random drawn winner will get a $25 gift certificate to the Flourishes store, just for playing along. You can enter by creating your card and linking it up to the Flourishes blog.
Here is my birthday card for Jan Marie 
I wanted to send a sweet cyber bouquet across to Jan Marie, so I used the beautiful 'Garden Picks' set of stamps, along with my sentiment from 'Tag Lines'. I haven't gone exactly with the colours of the inspiration photo, but I did use most of them. 
Jan Marie...wishing you a fabulous birthday and a wonderful year to follow...Sending you cyber (((hugs))) xx

*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" the 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 birthday wishes, and grab some great ideas for birthday cards along the way.
Just hop on over and take a look at what all the other designers have created...
Thanks for stopping by and helping us wish Jan Marie a wonderful and fabulous BIRTHDAY on Monday!
