Happy New Year ~ Dream Big!

happynewyearmaureenplut

Good morning!  It’s Friday once again and a new Viva La Verve sketch is up and running over on the VLV forum.  Diva Teresa is giving us lots of creative freedom with this fabulous sketch!

I picked snowflakes for my round image as it’s Winter and I’m still not quite ready to bring out the Valentine stamps.  I hadn’t used any of the lovely Crate Paper Sleigh Ride paper I got last month, so I picked some wintery papers that didn’t say “Merry Christmas,”  lol.  I added “Dream Big” as a new year mantra to remind us that anything is possible with a new year here!  I was tricky with the Ribbon Banner die!  I die cut one banner, stamped “Happy New Year” onto it, then trimmed it down to be the perfect tag for the New Year stamp!  I hope you’ll play with us each week.  If you do, you could win $100 to spend in the Verve Store!  Check out the new January Sale…there’s a great selection of Love/Valentine stamps and dies on sale!  Thanks for visiting and have a great start to your weekend!

Happy Friday!! I just love the wintery feeling of this one, Moe! I got those papers just before Christmas and only got to make one card so I love seeing their versatility for winter!!

Gorgeous, Maureen! I've thoroughly enjoyed scrolling down through your creations! I used to come across your blog more often when I participated in challenges more...just haven't had as much time lately! Wanted to thank you for your comment on my chalkboard card! So glad you liked it! (I'm an ex-teacher, myself, so I have a soft spot for teachers!!!) Thank you again!...I enjoyed my visit!
