Wishing You New Verve ~ Mercy's Tuesday Sketch

What could be better than someone wishing you new Verve stamps? I was so excited to break open 2 of my new sets, "Wishing You" and "Happiness Found." The Wishing You set is really cool because the "Wishing You" is separate and then there are all these other sentiments that you can choose from. So versatile. The little leaves are from Happiness Found. I don't make many long cards as I don't have the envelopes for them but thought I could make this into my mother-in-law's birthday card and then just tuck it in her present. She turns 84 tomorrow and I'm taking her out for lunch on Saturday to our local Tea House. The scones are to die for!! I dipped into my Autumn Vine dp again. I am really enjoying these papers. These two patterns are on the same paper. I love when companies make it easy to put dp together :) The lovely satin ribbon is from PTI and the button is once again from my Grandpa's button collection (real vintage!). I wish you all the happiest of days today :) And may you be blessed with new Verve stamps someday along your stamping journey :)

Love what you did with this sketch. It is on my to do list so thanks for the inspiration. Love the ribbon! It works well with the rest of your colours. Like the stitching detail. Glad you're getting use out of the dp.
