Verve May Spotlight Hop ~ Day 3

hersailsmaureenplut

Greetings friends!  Are you ready for some more Vervey sneak peeks?  Today I’m showcasing the new Adjusted Sails Plain Jane and the Strong Anchor stamp set.  This quote really speaks to me.  I’m a firm believer that life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% how we handle it.  I’ve stamped the rope circle in a light sahara sand ink under the main sentiment and the little wheel in white craft onto a cork heart.  Amber’s wonderful Viva La Verve sketch from last Friday provided the perfect inspiration for today’s card :)  (Thanks, Schmoopy!).  The final detail was some yummy swirly black sheer ribbon from the new Black Beauty Ribbon Collection!  Are you doing a happy ribbon dance since Julee started adding it to the store?  I know I am!
