Happy Anniversary

St. Pat’s Fact: Patrick was about sixteen years old when he was abducted and enslaved by Irish marauders. There is some dispute over where this captivity took place. Although many believe he was taken to live in Mount Slemish in County Antrim (Northern Ireland), it is more likely that he was held in County Mayo near Killala. During his captivity, he became closer to God.  


Good morning!  It’s Friday and that means the new Viva La Verve challenge is up.  Diva Charmaine is inspiring us with a fabulous new sketch.  I broke into my new to me Webster’s Pages Hollywood paper that I picked up last weekend along with a new Prima.  I just love it when a sketch has a BIG circle on it so I can use another silver doily :)  This Verve Vintage Oval die was the perfect shape for this Love Story sentiment.  Well, that’s it for me…it’s report card writing weekend and then I will have more time to play.  I hope you can join us for the Viva La Verve sketch this week.  Play each week and you’ll have the chance to win the whole next Verve release!!  See all the deets HERE!!  Have a great day and thanks for visiting :)

I have a girlfriend who would love this card as she is a huge purple fan :) Lovely use of the DP and silver doily. Wonderful use of the sketch. Hope you can plow through those report cards quickly this weekend :)

I adore this card, Maureen! Love the slivers with the purples and the shabby ribbon is the perfect ad! Great card!

Awesome job with this super sweet card, Moe! The sketch is fabulous and I can't wait to play along. You did that doily up perfectly!

Ooooh loving the use of new goodies on this beauty, diva! For a moment, I thought your doily was a HUGE silver embossed stamp! LOL!
Have a super duper weekend - get those report cards done quick-smart to make for more inky time :)

GORGEOUS! I love that silver doily! I might have to use one on my new doily dies for that circle image.... Hmmm... Now the wheels are turning. :)

I've seen those silver and gold doilies at Michaels, but quite frankly, they scare me when I look at them, lol. I may have to rethink my fear with all your beautiful examples of how to use them!
