A Cheerful Friend is Like a Sunny Day

cheerfulfriend

Good morning everyone! Well, I survived the first day back to work and luckily the kids were more tired than me! lol  Although, it was a warm tea latte and early bedtime for me last night :)  Today’s card celebrates friendship, old or new.  I couldn’t help but think of all my dear blog friends and new Diva friends {insert heart and smiley here!} as I made this card.  I’ve used some fabulous Basicgrey Olivia paper and  zigzagged stitched it to the card base.  The word “FRIEND” and sentiment are from Verve’s Text Objects (a must-have set IMHO!). 

Today is also the second day of Verve’s New Release Spotlights…remember, this Friday, January 7, Verve is releasing some fabulous new sets and dies! To countdown to the release, we’re putting on a series of mini blog hops Tuesday through Thursday of this week to preview the new sets! And because a new release is something to celebrate, we’ve hidden a prize on one of the participating blogs each day! Just leave a little comment love as you hop around to be entered into a drawing to win that day’s featured stamps! Deadline for comment entries is 6PM Mountain Friday, January 7. Winners will be announced at our release party on Friday night!  The Master List for the hop is over on the Verve Blog.  Be ready for some major eye candy!!  Have a great day :)

That's some bright DP and you have tamed it wonderfully with the large "ahem" skewed panel LOL! Great use of the friend sentiment. This set is going to be a b-day treat to myself :) Still hoping for the mail to cooperate!

Oh Ms. Midas....you sure can do amazing things with stuff that I would run and hide from. That paper is perfectly mellowed with your feature panel and accents. Love it all, my friend!

It's an early bedtime for me too, tonight! I managed yesterday OK but it's caught up on me today LOL!
Awwww it truly makes me smile to read all that fabulous Verve info, Diva! Still so, so happy for you!
I'm pretty sure any blog buddy or new Diva buddies would love this card - love the buttons and the bling (of course!)
Hugs,
Aimes

Fabulous card! Welcome back to school! I'm glad that your kiddos were more tired than you. It probably made your transition just a bit simpler!

Great paper! Love that pti die and the edging it made for this awesome sentiment. You obviously care about your friends a lot looking at this creation. Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous friend card. I love how you've repeated the word friend to create a unique background paper. Love the stitching and buttons. This is a great sentiment.
