Big Wish

bigwish

Good morning everyone!  I’ve taken the morning off from packing to spend a little time in the studio.  Today’s card uses the fabulous ColourQ challenge colours this week as well as a Verve Big Wish sentiment to celebrate Release Week. I have a stack of new paper pads and so I flipped through all of them before settling on these beautiful papers from My Mind’s Eye Stella Rose.  I hadn’t made a music sheet paper flower for a while and I thought it would be the perfect way to add black and white to the card.

If you notice a Diva (me!) MIA on the blog hop list, it’s true.  Due to the postal strike this month, my stamps will just be arriving as the sets are releasing…but no worries…I will still have some Vervey goodness to share over the next few days.  So head over the the Verve Blog to see all the details AND come to the party with me on Friday night (9 EST, 6 PST).

Come back tomorrow for a sweet little card and homage to my wonderful husband as we celebrate 4 years of marriage…I know, it’s not many years, but it took me a long time to find him ;)  Thanks for visiting!!

What a beauty! I love the way you inked the edges of your flower orange, and those papers are fabulous. So glad you could play at the ColourQ again this week!

Happy anniversary to you and your hubby!

Happy anniversary, happy anniversary, happy anniversary to you and Tony! Here's to many, many more years of happiness!

Love your card today...the button is the perfect play on the inspiration photo! Is the postal strike over yet???

Well what a productive break you had from packing, Diva! Love the inked edges on your fabulous flower!
Curse that postal strike! Well I guess it will provide less distraction from your packing - until those inky goodies arrive that is LOL!
Ooh and big congrats to Tony and yourself for tomorrow I hope you have something fun planned to celebrate!
Hugs,
Aimes
