September Beautiful World Tour

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 voyage!!

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 Thank-you 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 the Flourishes 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 decided to make a thank you card to show a friend that their kind gesture will not go forgotten.  As summer is coming to an end, I wanted to feature a favourite summer treat by using the Flourishes Wild For Watermelon set.  I just LOVE the fabulous images and the adorable and punny sentiments!

The image was coloured with Copics from the following Copic Collections from Flourishes:

I used fellow teamie, Iwona Palamountain's, Sketchbook Saturday Sketch #14 as inspiration:

Well, I hope you enjoyed your stop in beautiful Vancouver, Canada, it's time to grab your passports and board Flourishes Flight BWT, your next destination is.........

Happy Stamping!

Lovely juicy colours, and such beautiful colouring, Naomi. Fab coordinating papers, too. Your friend will love your card!


Fun card, ESP for us in the north knowing we are losing the warmth of summer and heading towards snow and the times of eating great tasting melons are leaving. until next year.


Lovely papers and FAB coloring of that watermelon.


Love your card. I want a watermelon now.


Yummy! It looks so real I can taste it.

Hello from the U.S-Michigan to be exact.
So cute! I love the watermelon. Hoping when I cut into one of mine from my garden it's this bright pink-and juicy. It's the first time I've ever successfully grown them and am not sure how to tell when they are ripe! :)

K. Joy

Mmm, your watermelon looks perfect! I love the papers you used for this card, and the cute little buttons in the top corner. It makes me realize that I haven't used buttons on a card in ages! Guess I need to pull them out again! Thanks for sharing!! :)
