I’m at Week #4 for the Verve Sketch Challenge for May. Yeah! I finally finished another card. I really do love this sketch. I used my new Verve Small Celebrations stamp set for this card. I’m enjoying this set because it has several sentiments which I can change out for the circle frame. I used some of the Tim Holtz distress ink on my stamped images.
I dug out some paper from one of my old K&Company Paper pads and used some Rose Red cardstock and ribbon which I found on the Stampin’ Up! Clearance rack. I always loved that color of theirs. Thought it was a perfect match for my paper. By the way, I got my new Stampin’ UP! catalog in the mail this past week and I just love some of their new items for paper piercing. Can’t wait until June when you can actually order out of it. I haven’t been a SU demo for a few years but I still like their cardstock and like getting a few other things from there. Their catalogs have lots of project ideas so that’s why I like pouring over it. It’s what I’ve been taking with me this week while I wait to pick my daughter up at school. If you need your own catalog, go see Patty.
Well, I have a lot to do today so I”m off to get some things done. Hope you all have a beautiful and creative day.
Hello Creative Friends,
Since I needed a thank you card this week, that’s what I did for the Verve Sketch Challenge for May Week 3.
I used some K& Company paper and the Delightful and Delicious Verve stamp set for the saying and cup. The little note pages are also a Verve stamp called, Notebook Paper. I just love that little stamp. I inked the edges of everything to give it a little dimension. I didn’t want to put any ribbons or buttons or anything on it that stuck up because I need to send this one through the mail.

Have a creative day,
Thought I’d enter the Verve Challenge this month. I used to enter all the time but always fizzle out and never finish the whole month. Something always comes up and I can’t get all the cards done in time. We’ll see how I do this time:) They have such fun sketches I like trying them out.
For today’s card I used an image from the Verve Always on My Mind set and for the paper I used some of the 1st Edition Spring Feast, which I keep using on everything but I just love it. So springy! The butterfly is a die cut.
Have to tell you I love doing cards and things with butterflies. There’s so much you can do with them.
Hello Creative Friends,
Here’s my entry for the Viva La Verve Week #2 Challenge. I love this verse and stamp. This is one of those weeks where I should really sit back and do what that verse says.
I used some K&Company scrapbook paper and embellished with some crochet trim, pearls, ribbon, and a button. I really wish the photo would have captured how vibrant the scrapbook paper is that I used. I tried taking it in different light, etc., etc., but finally gave up. The burgundy center of the flowers and the green leaves are really so pretty and I wish that would have showed up more.
Have a great weekend everyone!
