Sip and Savor


Good morning!! And Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!!  I love holiday Mondays!!  Today is the start of a new Get Your Diva On challenge over on the Verve Forum!!  The uber talented Diva Andrea is hosting this week and is challenging us to create some Handmade Happiness!!  Incorporate a home made embellishment on your card or project! Could be knitted, crocheted, of paper or fabric origin, painted, etc... As long as there is one element on the project (haha...besides the project itself!) that is're in!  For my handmade embellishment, I created a gorgeous rolled rose with my MFT die and some PTI felt.  Then I made the leaf sprigs with my Verve Leafy Sprigs die and matching stamp.  I’m also calling that doily handmade as I die cut that as well along with cleaning out the die holes afterwards (still a lot of work, but still love it!). I also chose this sentiment as I thought this would be the perfect card to tuck a little Starbucks card into and give as a little thank you to someone special :) Okay, head over to the Verve Forum for the official details and join along!! You have until next Sunday night :)  Good luck!!



what’s in it?

stamps: Sip and Savor, Tag Time, Sunny Days (Verve)

I need to take rose rolling lessons from you - this one looks fabulous! Love the pop of coral against the grey and browns. Great card.

Hey Moe! Happy Thanksgiving (just a tad bit late)! Sounds like you and Tony had a fabulous weekend away. Can't wait to see all the pictures of your purchases. And seriously, I think you bought the Ikea table just for me. Counter height is perfect! Love your card today. That felt flower is so soft and beautiful!
