A Note to Say ~ Viva La Verve and Diva Dare


Click here to enter my Boise or Bust Blog Candy


Good morning!  It’s Friday and there’s double the reason to celebrate today!  First up is my take on this week’s Viva La Verve sketch using some goodies I picked up on my mad Archiver’s shopping spree last weekend in Boise.  I always like to help out the local economy {wink!}.  My new favourite paper at the moment is this Teresa Collins Memories with coordinating decorative buttons.  LOVE!  I’m also using some fun new Maya Road linen trim.  Here’s the rest of my haul…


Lots of enamel dots, some more paper, an embossing folder, Hero Arts Stamp, wood veneer shapes, doilies, etc.  I even picked up ANOTHER paper pad of MME’s Fun Day Kraft.  This is the only pad I’ve ever bought twice and I did it because I love the black on kraft paper designs.  Now, the second announcement is that I’m hosting the Diva Dare Day 10 over on the Verve Blog today so head over there and join me as I talk about this very special card  I’ll be using next week ;)


Wow!  What a busy day!  A great way to start the weekend!  Hope yours is starting out right too :)  Thanks for stopping by!
