You're So Sweet ~ Viva La Verve

Good morning! Well, the first day has come and gone. It was nice seeing my old students again :) We will get our new classes tomorrow. It was a short day with the kids but we had a long staff meeting...so I'm very tired :) To unwind I made this card for the Viva La Verve Friday with a twist challenge. We had to make a smaller than usual card or scrapling (which I think means a little card made from scraps?). I used some left over cork from my Guest Designer gig last Saturday and one of the many lattices I made for Dawn's colour challenge. Had to use a new Verve stamp from Delightful and Delicious :) My dh is off to work out of town on Thursday so we have dinner reservations at a hip new restaurant tomorrow night {insert swoon here}. Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far :) Thanks for all the well wishes!!

What's in it?

Stamps: verve delightful and delicious

Paper: SU kraft, vanilla

Ink: SU choc chip

Accessories: SU lattic die, oval punch, linen thread; cuttlebug flower dies; button; PTI ribbon; dritz pins

Glad to hear you survived your first day - enjoy your stylin' supper =) You'll have earned it this week for sure!

Thanks for stopping by! Clearly I need to place another Verve order...or get some of those fabulous PTI coordinating items you've got with those winnings!

OMG I'm away from Blogland for a bit and you've uploaded so many amazing creations - I'm playing catch up checking them out!
I really admire that you can blog away still whilst back at school - I confess I'm really struggling as it's so tiring!
This card is adorable - you're getting fab use from that die and your colour combo is gorgeous!
Have a super time at the hip new restaurant!

Cute card. Lvoe the lattice work in the BG and the cork flower is darling.

Hope things settle down into a routine quickly at school and the longer days don't wear you out too much at the beginning.
