Thinking of You ~ Viva La Verve!

Good afternoon! Well, it's been quite a week over at the Verve forum with the 2nd anniversary celebrations. It ended last night with the Release Party and winners. Yes, I won a gift certificate!! I was the lucky random post winner on Jackie's challenge with a twist. It was the last card I made, an extra one in fact, with a St. Patrick's Day theme (see card in previous post) in honour of my birthday. And lucky it was!! I bought one of the new sets with my gc so you'll be seeing cards with it in the next week or so. It was also Papertrey's monthly release and my friends and I bought from there as well. Now that's it!! LOL (is it ever?!). This card is for the weekly Viva La Verve sketch with a twist. Amber's twist this week was to make a card with a tag. I looked through my dies and came across this one from the Cuttlebug Harmony alphabet. I liked the punched circle border...kinda different. I also wanted to use this wide ribbon I got at Michaels last year. I love the colours and based the card around them. I'm off to a movie tonight with some old teacher girlfriends. I've heard mixed reviews on The Time Traveller's Wife, although everyone says the book was fantastic. I haven't read it yet. My friend, Melisa, is going to lend it to me when she finishes it this week :) Hope you are having a lovely day wherever you are!!

Beautiful card, love that embossing folder and that fab ribbon! Congrats on winning! Can't wait to see your new set in action!

Great ribbon :D -- I've got it too LOL! Think I spend more time in that bulk ribbon bin than anywhere else in that store...even have my kids trained to help me find duplicates of one I like.

Lovely job on this card. Believe it or not I actually had this ribbon out to use on one of the sketches and didn't have a dark magenta colour to tie in so I passed on it.

I was so tired out from my late night of stamping on Thursday (up till 1:00 a.m.) and having to go swimming with my kids on Friday that I totally forgot about Amber's sketch. Can't wait to check it out.

What did you buy with you GC?? I got Because of You and then added Circular Sayings, Leaves, Heb 11:1 adn Ps 121:1-2 (after all, the shipping at that point was free so I loaded up LOL).

Better go, need to play with my kids :D
