Festive Flourishes Friday!!!!

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. On Christmas, I cook the ham, the turkey, and most of the fixings and other family members bring some more stuff. It is food and sweets all day!!!! We also make a Happy Birthday to Jesus cake and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. My dd, Erica, made it this year. She is 14 yo and is starting to experiment more with cooking. We had both sets of grandparents over with my dh brother, his wife, and one year old baby. It was a wonderful family day!!!!

All of us girls at Flourishes were assigned a secret swapper by our fearless leader Julie Koerber. The card above is the card I sent to Cindy Lawrence.

Christine Okken was my secret swapper and sent me this card!!!!! I love it!!!! It is so dimensional and used the Flourishes, LLC All That Glitters set. All of the ornaments are cut out and popped up on dimensionals. The colors are wonderful, too!!!! Thanks so much, Christine!!!!
