So Happy for You

TGIF everyone!  I am hosting the Viva La Verve challenge this week with my second official sketch!!  I am just loving doilies and tags lately so I put them together for this sketch. (and no, Marisa, the tag is not tilted, just blowing in the wind! lol ;)  I’ve used it a few times over the past few weeks (hope you’re not bored of it!).  I received some new paper last week…some more Basicgrey.  They are just rockin’ the new paper releases!!  This is from the Sweet Threads collection and believe you me, every sheet in the pad is divine!! I’m going to have so much fun with it!  Got a wee bit of time to spare this week?  I sure hope you will come over to the Verve Forum on Splitcoast and join in the fun this week…play every week this month and you have the chance to win the whole next Verve Release!!  All the details are over on the forum.  Have a fabulous Friday!  (I had to include my honourable attempt to create a sketch from my SU Digital Studio. It’s what I sent Julee so she could “Verve-ify” it!! lol)

what’s in it?

stamps: verve sweet treats, hope blooms

ink: versafine onyx, su groovy guava

paper: pti kraft, sweet blush, cream, white, basicgrey dp

accessories: verve sweet scallop tag and embossed oval dies, pti notepage die, mft butterfly dies, doily, Michaels ribbon, gems, stitching, pti button and twine

You are rocking the doilies...and even more than the doilies I love those butterflies! Fabulous sketch and card!

I'm thinking I'm going to have to figure out SCS - you can teach me the SCS forum and I'll teach you the SCAL software for your Cricut!!

What a wonderful sketch! Perfect for Mother's Day cards which I am making this weekend! Love your version... I may be slightly ;) influenced by it!

Looking forward to playing along!

Fabulous sketch - can't wait to give it a shot! Loving your color combo and that super cute butterfly. Awesome ribbon, buttons and bling as usual and that stitching is lovely!

I don't have a doily die cut, but I may just have to use some of the real ones... This looks like lots of fun and I have those Sweet Threads papers and love them as well!! Love this card!!

Marisa said...

LOL...blowing in the "gentle" wind it is ;) Great sketch. I do okay with skewed tags and love the sketch, yes, I said I did love the sketch LOL! Even better, that wonderful butterfly die is on it's way to me - how long until it gets here is anyone's guess but at least it will be mine soon :) Great miox of colours and a lovely card.

Thanks for the well wishes on the weekend cooking :) Just running through my Reader before heading up for day 1 (reminds me of that designing show on TV where they did the renos in two days). Kids are helping as they are older, but we'll see how long they survive LOL! Gotta run, enjoy your weekend!

I love this sketch and your take on it is gorgeous! Love the pinks and that guava - feels like a sunny day at the beach!

Oh I think I may have to call you Doily Diva from now on! You make them look fab and they fit in perfectly with your creations!
Hope you're having a super Friday!
BTW: I'll have pretty much anything for my breakfast - though it's been Fluf! on toast this week ;D

Aimes said...

P.S Ooooh thinking of breakfast over there - surely we could whip up some pancakes with some genuine maple syrup! Yum!
