One Day at a Time


Good Friday morning!  Oh, do I need a weekend!  It’s been grey and cold and rainy here and our poor drenched sundeck has had no lovin’ for over a week! ACK!  “They” promise us some sun on Monday, so until then, it’s one day at a time!!  How about THAT for a lead in!  My card today not only uses the brand spankin’ new Verve Plain Jane, but the fabulous new Viva La Verve sketch by Diva Tosh!  As I was flipping through my new paper pads, I stopped at this fun hot air balloon page in Basicgrey’s What’s Up?  It made me think of the Verve set Up Up and Away that has not seen ANY loving in the new studio! Double ACK!  And that’s basically how the whole card came together.  Want to win some serious Verve bucks?  Play all month long with all our sketches and you could win $100.00 of Verve GCs!  AND that will go even farther with the current Verve SaleJune12HP_01

So what are you waiting for?  Head over to the Verve SCS forum and join in all the fun!  See you there and TGIF, rain or shine!

p.s. I’m also using some more of that fabulous Bazzill Basics card stock!  Super thick, 100lbs weight, with fabulous names that will make you drool!  And check out their cool Matchmaker page to match their cardstock with popular designer papers!
