Because It Has a Song


TGIF, everyone!!  Thank goodness for the Viva La Verve sketches this summer, reminding me of what day it is ;)  I know, hard life.  Up today is Diva Andrea’s fabulous sketch for the second Viva La Verve sketch this month.  Play all month long and you could win the next new Verve Release…it’s sure to be amazing, knowing Julee and her creative genius :)  As I flipped through one of my Verve binders, I came to this sentiment and just had to use it.  I tried stamping it on an oval, but it just didn’t look right, so I substituted the shape for this curly square.  I also moved this panel up a bit as it didn’t look right covering the ribbon…but I got permission from Andrea earlier this week to keep the card…so all is good {thanks sweet Diva Sister!}.  Well, the weekend is here and the Verve Sneaky Peeks start on Sunday…are you ready to scream?!  Seriously, the new sets and dies are out of this world…so mark it on your calendar and check out the Verve blog for the start of 6 days of drooling eye candy.  Thanks for visiting!!

Oh that birdie is so sweet, Diva! He looks so at home on this card!
Well have you heard the news? I won't be on the PC cruise, but that means I can save up more pennies for Canada rather than the flights to and from Florida ;D

I adore the sentiment Maureen and the bird is fabulous. I love it. We are officially on the road for vacation now. Two hours down. Ten or so to go. I am on my first book and the boys are on the first movie!

Absolutely stunning, Maureen! I love that sentiment! Do you stamp a sentiment inside your card when you use a sentiment like that on the front? Just curious! :)

This is so sweet, Maureen! I love that cute little bird and matching sentiment!

Julie said...

Gorgeous, Maureen! I love that little bird!

Marisa said...

That crimped bird is too cute. Thanks to Starbucks I'm assuming ;) Love that sentiment and the bird is perfect. Need to get caught up on my sketches as I missed three great ones! Have a great weekend.

The crimping on the bird is inspired.Just love it.
