The Goodness of Life ~ Verve's Project Parade

Good morning! We are having another beautiful sunny day here :) Yesterday I went fishing with my dh and we caught 6 fish (actually 7 but we threw it back; it was a spawner). So we did have fish last night for dinner :)~ Today's post is for Verve's September Project Parade. The theme this month is to make something for a hostess. Depending on who it is, I usually bring wine or coffee, but if it's a special friend who loves my cards, I'll bring a little set of my cards. The colour scheme was inspired by Jen del Muro's card and Starbucks :) The green is strinking against the white and black. I used white embossing powder with my favourite Kindred Spirits image and popped up that cute little mug again in kraft :) I love the Verve font and flourish on this sentiment. The package has a blossom crinkled flower and a crimped band to mimic the Starbucks cup protector (thanks again to Jen!) I hope you are enjoying your Friday. I have 2 more days of complete freedom and then it's back to work. It's been a blissful, wonderful summer :)

Love the contrast of the wasabi and black. And I like the white embossing on the kraft.

Love how you used the embossed Kindred Spirits on the kraft panel of the card. The black maeks things pop wonderfully too. Fun paper flower too. Great job on both.

Oh my....these are so fantabulous! If there's a new designer brought on board at Verve, I bet you're it, Maureen. GORGEOUS (but I'd be stunned if anything you created wasn't)!

Ok. I'm a little late commenting on your project, but better late than never! It's gorgeous, by the way. I love the white embossing you did with Kindred Spirits! And your colors are so beautiful and elegant as always.

I thought I had commented already on this beautiful set, but looking over this post for the ummmmm THIRD time (LOL) I realized I better make sure I had said something.

The colors on this set are indeed striking and I love the layered flower embellished with buttons. Everything just goes so well together.
