Happy Birthday, Kristina! ~ Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch


Hello all! I'm spending a quiet afternoon in the studio...not getting as much done as I would like, but having fun nonetheless :) I want to dedicate today's card to a sweet blog buddy, Kristina. If you follow the Verve blog and forum, you know her as a past Guest Designer and Splitcoast Stamper, Woodwinds. She is so cute and funny and has a year's pass to Disneyland, the happiest place on Earth! LOL I love when she talks about it as if it's just like having a pass to a zoo or art gallery. No wonder she is so sweet and happy :) Anyways, Kristina, I hope you are having a wonderful birthday :) I chose a bright green and blue floral paper...brand spankin' new from my Amy Butler dp pack I picked up at Michaels yesterday (along with the Slice!!) I altered the sketch slightly by making the sentiment the main focus...but I HAD to because I wanted to use this Verve stamp as Kristina and I met through the Verve forum on Splitcoast...so it seemed only fitting :) I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your weekend. Blessings to you all :)

Very pretty card, Maureen! The paper is gorgeous and your card certainly does it justice! There's the cute apron lace border and stitching!

This is wonderful, Maureen :D Great DP and the "wishing you" set is perfect. I had actually narrowed it down to this set to get with your lovely gift but now Julee goes and tells us there is a release on Friday so I'm holding out till then LOL! So glad you got the Slice and can't wait to see what you do with it on your cards!

WOW! I am in love with that paper! I have such a hard time with patterned paper, I think I can learn something from you! Great job! :)

Maureen! I love my card!!! Thank you so much for the sweet words and the beautiful card. I had a wonderful birthday. I spent the morning with my sister in Washinton state and the afternoon back here in Southern California with my good friends. Disneyland was really crowded, but we still managed to take in the fireworks, a few rides, and the magical snow that falls each night.
I'm officially on vacation this week- no school! Though, I think I'm going to head in on Wednesday just to get some things done... Try and get ahead before I fall behind. Thank you again for the sweet card!
