Birthday Wishes


Happy Friday everyone!! Although now that I’m on vacation, everyday is Friday!! (lol, don’t hate me!).  Today’s card is another one to help celebrate a New Verve Release tonight HERE on the Forum!!  The Release Team Divas are spotlighting the final new set and the 3 plain janes in a blog hop today, so head over to the Verve Blog to see how you could win some Verve!! I have been wanting to use this bird image from Swan Song ever since I got the set last Winter.  I added a fun little Birthday Sentiment from Birthday Phrases that fits perfectly into the banner dies, which are both ON SALE this month :)  AND finally, I’m using Diva Tosh’s Viva La Verve sketch for this week…more chances to win some Verve!! ACK, can you handle all that?  Anyways, I’m off to start this day, meet my interior designer at the new house and then rest up for the Release Party tonight…hope to see you there!!

That bird looks great with the blue papers! I am jealous that every day is a Friday for you right now, I'd be stamping up a storm... Have a great weekend, even if it feels like every other day. :-)

Maureen, this is gorgeous...I love the little tag...very, very sweet and the bird has a dramatic effect.

Great take on Tosh's sketch. I was teasing her last night at the party. She told me she had no skewed panels so I should be happy. I told her DP panels were my next big challenge LOL! Will have to see what I can come up with. Great mix of DPS and use of the sketch.

Stunning Maureen! Really beautiful! Love the bird and the fantastic DP!!! So lovely! Wish I had more money! So many stamps, so little funds :)

A beautiful color palette, those blues are so calming and serene! The bird image is adorable and those banner dies coordinate perfectly! Fabulous!
