Go Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams


Yahoooo!!! It’s here again!!  TGIF!!  I think this second Friday of the year might even be sweeter than the first one as it’s been a WHOLE week of full days at work.  Plus I’m meeting a dear friend for some drinks and appies after work…suh-weet!! And you all know I also love Fridays because it’s a new sketch over on the Viva La Verve forum!!  It’s week three out of 4 this month…and if you play ALL month long and link your cards in the Sketch Champion thread, you could win the whole next release!!  Can’t wait for the next release before getting some new Verve?  Check out the month long Autumn Sale on now over in the Verve Store!  Julee always has something on sale…a woman after my own heart :D  Today’s card is going to another niece who has just moved out to go to university.  She’s also getting a fun little gift with it…I think these quotes from Words of Wisdom are perfect for students going off to school.  I also slipped in another little favourite stamp from To the Moon…it fits perfectly in the tiny sweet scallop tag die :)  Okay, let’s get this day started!!  Have a great one!!




what’s in it?

stamps: words of wisdom, to the moon (Verve)

paper: cream, rustic cream (PTI), sahara sand, soft suede, espresso (SU!), Pyrus (Basicgrey)

I'm thinking that is my favorite sentiment in that set! And was thinking last night I need to use it quickly for Madeleine as she starts college next week! Your Friday night sounds like perfection! We have a quiet weekend (Pat is golfing) with baseball and hopefully lots of crafting!

Love that rusty coloured DP and your mix of colours is great. Interesting sketch...hmmm...going to have to work on it today while I still have time to play. Work for hubby got delayed a week so I"m able to unwind a bit after a crazy busy summer and first few weeks of school. This early wake up time is killing me LOL! Happy Friday :)

Wow, this is simply adorable, Maureen! Glad you made it through the second week of school! :)
