Thanks and Exciting Guest Diva News!!!!

 Good afternoon!!  Todays' card is for the first Viva La Verve August sketch challenge.  Amber has us going through inspiration photos for Master Bedrooms this month.  I couldn't resist this fabulous bedding!!! YIKES!!  Ahhh, remember those button bouquets from last year?  Only if you've been with me for a year...I was a little (read "really") obsessed with them last year and thought this would be a great place to revive them :)
Okay, now for some exciting news!!!  Julee at Verve Stamps has asked me to be the Guest Diva (along with Sony Christoph) this month for their Anniversary Celebration!  This is a thrilling honour for me and I just wanted to thank everyone...from all my friends who've encourged me this year to the Divas and of course, Julee, for giving me this amazing opportunity :)  Really, I am still up on cloud 9!! 
 And the last thing I want to share is this fabulous card my good friend, Melisa, made for me last September after I got my first cards published.  I had to laugh at the time, thinking this day could never come...but here we are...I told Melisa that she must've put a sweet spell on me with this card :)  Okay...that's all for today...have a wonderful evening and if you haven't checked it out yet, Verve is having a blog hop until Wednesday and there are a whole lotta fabulous stamps to win!!!  Click here for the deets.  Thanks for stopping by!!!

Darling insp. card. Love the card and smiled when you talked about it. I have loved this set forever, but feel if I get it the button crazy will be over - yes, I"m a bit slow on the pick up LOL!

Was hoping you'd post your friend's card -- I thought of it right away when I read about you GD spot :) Congrats again!!

I love that background you created! Avocado and Raspberry Fizz... I quite possibly could be in heaven. That first inspiration picture grabbed me as well, but I've yet to sit down and tackle it. It just stares at me on my desktop. :)

Congrats AGAIN, my friend, on your Divahood!!! I am so incredibly excited to see what you whip up for all of us to drool over, and incredible jealous of all the Verve goodness that's headed your way!!

Melisa Hunter said...

Wow! You did a wonderful job on this challenge. Love how you incorporated all the colours and it's great to see the button bouquets again. You've inspired me... I'm going to complete all of the Verve challenges this month... after we get back from Savary Island! See you soon, my darling Diva!
