Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop ~ Day 9 (Release Day!!)

 

vlvday9treasuredwords

Good morning!  Well, today is what I consider the official final day of my carefree summer.  I’ll head back to my classroom next week to set up for the upcoming school year on September 4th.  So though it’s bittersweet, I can’t think of a better way to go out with a BANG than the last and final day of the Anni-VERVE-sary Sneak Peeks.  If you’ve arrived from Laurie S.’s Blog, you are right on track, if not, check out the Blog List below. You’ll want to visit each participant and leave a little comment love for the chance to win today’s featured stamp set, Treasured Words

I’m using Diva Amy’s CAS Viva La Verve sketch that is just up in the VLV Forum to help me showcase today’s set.  Now, you’ve seen that sweet little stitched frame all week {wink} but now I can talk about it for real! LOL  There are a whopping 12 sentiments in this set that fit perfectly into that little frame that sits perfectly in the Rounded Rectangle die.  I used a scrap punched border that I didn’t use on a card this week, a little unexpected element for the CAS layout.  Did you notice the stitching?  Now, you know me…LOVE stitching, LOVE various thread colours…but if you don’t, you can stamp a sweet row of stitches with another stamp from Borderline (shown yesterday on Day 8).

Remember my little white board?  After erasing a LONG list, this is what was left on Wednesday.  Now remember, I’m on the West Coast, so the Release Party time for me is 6:00 PST…it’s 9:00 EST…so don’t get mixed up!  I don’t want you waiting around for 3 hours! lol

Great take on today's sketch! That stitched border looks like it will come in handy for those of us who aren't so inclined to thread up our sewing machines!

I love the clean lines of this card and what the delicate punched paper adds.

Sian Ridley said...

I agree, the perfect way to finish a fab summer! I don't know how you're going to tear yourself away from all that new Verve though - I'd be thinking about it all day at work! :)

That frame and those sentiments are just perfect, I love them! And the stitches...well! I love stitching, however as I am without a sewing machine all my stitching is done by hand, so these little stitches would be such a help!

It's nice to know that you'll be thinking of me at the party tonight! I'm sure I'll be dreaming of you all and the new Verve :)

Laters, Moe :)

Kathy M said...
