Dream Big


Good morning!!  Today is a fabulous day for me…yes, it’s Friday and yes, there’s a new amazing sketch for us on the Viva La Verve forum, but it’s also another Professional Day and I’m spending it with a few of my dear colleagues and attending an online workshop by my math guru, Kim Sutton, from California.  She is AMAZING and I use many of her strategies in my math teaching.  This week’s VLV sketch is by the fantabulous Diva Charmaine!! Simple shapes, a simple design which opens up a TON of possibilities!!  I went for a layered look totally inspired by this amazing card by Julie Lacey, one of  my stamping idols :)  I’m meeting with my interior designer after work to look at some California Shutters for the front rooms of the house.  It will get direct sunlight in the morning so we’ll need some good window coverings :)  Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you over in the Viva La Verve forum this week :)  Have a great start to your weekend,

That sketch is fabulous and you've done an amazing job (as usual) with it! Love the layers with the beautiful flower, fabulous doily, perfect bling and ribbon AND awesome stitching to boot!

There is that yummy DP again - actually broke down and got some the other day. Wonderfully layered card and take on the sketch. You'll be able to count sleeps before moving in pretty soon :)

Hi Maureen!!! Hope all is going well!

This card is so BEAUTIFUL! I love the colors and the layout! Your placement of the doily is just perfect - never would have thought of layering this way - thanks for the inspiration!!!!
