So Happy for You


Good morning and TGIF!!  This week just flew by and today I’m feeling a lot better…thanks so much for all your comforting words yesterday…it’s just nice to hear encouraging words…really, I am blessed a thousand fold, just need a place to hang my ribbon and call home, ya know?! teehee ;)  It’s Friday and you know what comes next…a fabulous new Viva La Verve sketch…in fact, it’s a whole new month of sketches over on the Verve Forum…that means our sweet Diva Amber is leading the way with the first gorgeous sketch…VLVOct11Week1Sketch

I received a few other pads of paper this week, including the Stella and Rose Hattie Papers.  I just love the colours in it, perfect for Fall :)  The first line of stitching around the card was a little “off” so I added a second line to even things out…love what happens when you work with a “mistake.”  I was also going to use a cream ribbon, but then tried the turquoise and LOVED the pop of added colour :)  Ah, I can’t wait (for the dh) to hang my ribbon racks in the new studio :)  Well, that’s all…thanks so much for visiting and HEY!!  Come back tomorrow for a fun announcement and a super fun sketch…wink, wink ;)  Cheers!!

We used the same paper on our cards today :) Your Diva Dust must be coming down to the coast to visit :) Now just have to get the attached Diva to come too LOL!

Great use of the sketch and fun shape for the sentiment panel. This is a sketch I don't have to go "hmmm" over too - yeah!! Have a fabulous weekend.
