September Beautiful World Tour

BW-Claudia-Rosa
Hello Everyone and welcome to the September Flourishes Beautiful World Tour!!!
Once again, it's time to get those passports ready, grab a cup of coffee and
prepare for take off as once again we prepare to travel the world and be
inspired by talented girls from all parts of the globe! A big thank you to
everyone who traveled the globe with us last month and stamped our passports
(left comments), we were thrilled to have you join us on the maiden flight!!
Do you know that your travels around the Flourishes World gives you the
opportunity to WIN?? All we ask is that you do a little globetrotting and stamp
our passports (leave us a comment) and you could WIN A FREE FLOURISHES STAMP
SET!!!!! The catch is, you don't know which country is going to be this month's
Vacation Spot (chosen blog), so leave a comment on each one by September 30th
for your chance to win!!!!
This month the hostess is Anne-Elise and we've been challenged to Remember our
Friends! Where would we be without our friends? We laugh together and share
our dreams, and when things are hard, we want to be there for them or be a
shoulder to cry on when they grieve. Today we remember those friends with
Sympathy, Missing You, Thinking of You or even Wishing You Were Here cards and
perhaps we'll even have a special story to tell you about those friends that
have inspired us along the way.
If you've jetted in from
Kathy’s blog, then you have arrived
at the right destination! If you haven't, perhaps you'd like to start your
journey back in Florida at the
Flourishes Blog
so you don't miss all the beautiful inspiration along the way!

I stamped my floral piece from Flourishes “Summer Blossom SS197” set onto Kraft cardstock and colored the flowers with pencils in. The sentiment is from “Hydrangea SS 194 and is one of a set of 7 beautiful stamps” and I stamped it on some lovely papers by My Minds Eye “Rosy” which is also available at Flourishes. Dies (frame and the border die) are both made by Magnolia they can be found through Sir Stampalot.

Take care – Claudia

Hi again sweetie and a big WOW to this beautiful and elegant card you've made for the blog hop! I really love your design and all the gorgeous details. I've found tonight that quite a few of my blog friends have been in this blog hop and it's been lovely seeing all the gorgeous inspiration.

Thank you sweetheart for your gorgeous comment yesterday. To be honest I can't remember how long I took to colour that scene but I think it took me longer to do all the masking LOL! It was probably a few hours. I can easily spend over an hour on just one image quite often.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Hugs, Chris xx
