Thank You

Phew!!!  What a day yesterday!!  Thank you so much for all your sweet comments and good wishes about my Verve Diva news :)  I am still dizzy from excitement!!  As I have had a lot more stamping time over the holidays, I couldn’t resist playing with the CASE Study gals this week.  Nina Brackett is the December Muse and this is the gorgeous card we had (lol, HAD, as if it was torture!! NOT!!) to CASE.
I  was inspired by the bold and elegant elements as well as the colours.  I just HAD to use my new  PTI build a blossom dies, although when using felt, this is one bulky card…it will have to be hand delivered or made into a permanent fixture in the studio!! LOL  Don’t ask how I adhered this onto the card…I may have to go back and hot glue it :)  I want you to notice this script stamp I’ve used on the cream panel…it’s from my new VERVE set, Text Objects, and stamps like buttah though the words are so small.  This is what it reads, “Brief is life, but love is long. Have a heart that never hardens, a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.”  Isn’t that one of the most beautiful quotes you have ever heard?  Ack, almost chokes me up each time I read it.
Well, that’s it for me :)  I have one more day of holidays tomorrow…we get Monday off in lieu of New Years being on a Saturday :)  I guess this makes up for not getting 2 days at Thanksgiving :)  lol….thanks for popping by and hugs to you all. Hope your New Year has started off well…mine sure has :D
P.S.  here’s my updated little whiteboard yesterday…and a coffee in my Prancer mug…I’ve definitely been prancing around the house since becoming a Diva!! lol

YAY Maureen!!! Sincere congrats on becoming an official Diva!!!! Such exciting news to start off a brand new year! Your card is STUNNING! That felt flower is fabulous (and the bulkiness is well worth it for this looker!). Beautiful work, as always!

Moe- this is adorable, love that pink! I have started making some Valentine projects, loving it. I don't usually send out V'tines but this year might be different.

Love this card with the big bright felt flower on the black and white. Those are great words on the text -- I can see why they would choke you up! (I was stamping with my Verve stamps today and I do LOVE the way they stamp. As you say, like buttah!)
