My Viva La Verve Sketch Debut!!

St. Pat’s Fact: An Irish blessing: “May you always have...
Walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, Laughter to cheer you, those you love near you
And all your heart might desire.”

Yippee!!! Good morning dear friends!!  It’s Friday which, as you now know, means the weekend is here AND there’s a new Viva La Verve challenge over on the forum!! BUT…this week yours truly is the sketch hostess!!!  My first official sketch :)  Look how fabulous Julee made it look!!  She even had a shamrock for me :)  Then look at what she had to work with…lol, my classy high tech sketch…VLVMar11Week3Sketch IMG_2772

So there was no holding back this week…I went for LOUD, BOLD AND PROUD!!  I say CLASH this week!! LOL  It’s all good for St. Patrick’s Day.  I hope you can come over and join in the fun!!  Oh, see this fun little sentiment?

It’s from the Verve set, Blessings, that is on sale right now for 30% off!!  I just love that Julee always has something on sale…and there’s more on sale too…check it all out here :)  EEEKKK!!! Could it get any more fun than this?  Some of you have told me/admitted that you don’t have any shamrock images…well, you can make your own like me!!  I die cut 3  hearts with my heart nestabilities from some glitter felt and adhered them onto a green circle.  Then I die cut the stem from a leaf die…the button hides where everything meets :)  Voila, a perfect shamrock!!  I hope you have a lovely start to your weekend…thanks for sharing this little milestone with me…oh, this is the most wonderful time of the year for me :)

Big, bold and fabulous! LOVE it! The green and black are wonderful together and that sparkly shamrock is perfect.

As for the skewed panel, it's a good thing your birthday is coming up so I can forgive you for it LOL!

Have a fabulous weekend despite having to think of me sweating away here trying to deal with a skewed panel sketch....yeah right :) Enjoy a report card free weekend prepping for the release.

Congrats on your first sketch Maureen!! Looks great! I noticed this card on the CARDS blog this morning (it was right next to mine--yay!!). Our great minds think alike--I didn't have a shamrock stamp, so I used a heart image three times.
Have a fabulous weekend--I'm officially on March Break--my classes just ended!!!

The green on this card is the perfect shade and I love your glittery shamrock!
