From the Lord ~ Viva La Verve Hostess


Happy Victoria Day to my fellow Canadians!  I'm back today with the card that inspired my Viva La Verve sketch.  This one was made for a sweet lady who is going through some serious health issues at the moment.  She is full of spunk and fire so I'm sure she will overcome it, but it always helps to have friends' support.  I love this uplifting Verve quote and always grab it for occasions such as this. Check out the Viva La Verve blog for more details on how you could win some Verve this month!  AND then check out the NEW release over in the Verve Store!  Have a lovely week :)

Verve May Spotlight Hop ~ Release Day!


Welcome back to Day 3 of Verve's May Spotlight Hops!  If you've come here from Marisa's blog, you are on the right track! It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! 2 beautiful new sets, 3 die sets and a sequin mix just released and they're all available to order right now. To celebrate our new release, we're putting on another blog hop!

Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!

On Wednesday, I told you all that I have a new favourite Verve flower from the Beautiful Things set...and here it is again :)  There is something about the way it stamps, the crispness of line, the symmetry...I can't put my finger on it, all I know is that I love it, pure and simple! I've added the "beautiful" die on this card along with the OLD "u" from  I Heart U Die Set.  I think it's a great way to make your stamps and dies go further!  I created a black shadow on the "u" by offsetting it slightly from the one I cut out of patterned paper.  The little side tag was created using the small stitched flag in the new Stitched Pennants Die Set.  I thought this tiny quote from an older set, Just Breathe was the perfect complement to the main sentiment.  I'm using my Viva La Verve sketch.  Head over there soon to find out how you could win a Verve gift certificate this month!  Finally, head over to Stacey's blog for more inspiration!

Verve May Release Spotlight Hop ~ Day 2


Welcome back to Day 2 of Verve's May Spotlight Hops!  If you've come here from Marisa's blog, you are on the right track! The Verve Divas and special guests are back for another day of spotlighting our new release! Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online store on Friday, May 20.

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Everlasting Love stamp set, Everlasting Heart Die Set and the Copper Blush Sequn Mix.

Ah, it's May and the season of weddings is upon us.  Thank goodness, Julee has created a gorgeous set of beautiful love sentiments and a gorgeous floral/heart image with matching die.  I love using a neutral palette with a pop of colour on my wedding cards.  The sweet little duo hearts in the set (with matching die) helped fill this bill.  For an added little somethin', somethin' I used some glossy accents to cover the hearts and make them shine :)  Yikes!  One more day and then these gorgeous stamps are in the store!   Head over to Stacey's blog for more yummy  inspiration!

It's Your Day to Celebrate!


Hi friends!  This is my card for the current Make it Monday challenge...oh my, challenge indeed!  We are asked to use money somehow on our card.  There are some super cute origami shapes you can make, but I live in Canada!  We don't have "paper" money any more, but "plastic" money!  Kind of hard to fold so I decided to roll it instead :)  Check out our beautiful, but plastic, line up...
 I had to ask the dh for a fifty...I thought the colour was perfect to go with my butterfly.  I wonder if he'll miss it...HA!

 Check out the cool window and holograph images we have on the new bills.  I put mine over my Misti so you could see through it.  Apparently you can write on the bills (48?).


Thanks for stopping by!  Hope your week is going well :)




Verve May Spotlight Hop ~ Day 1


Welcome to Verve's May Spotlight Hops! If you've come from Marisa's blog, you are right on track!
A new release is just around the corner and for the next couple of days we'll be shining our creative spotlights on the new Verve sets and dies releasing this Friday, May 20.  Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Beautiful Things stamp set, Beautiful Flowers Die Set and the Stitched Pennants Die Set.

Okay, I have a NEW favourite Verve flower from the brand new Beautiful Things stamp set.  I watercoloured some paper then die cut the flowers with the Beautiful Flowers Die Set.  Then I stamped the flower images with black ink.  I added some sweet little leaf dies and finished off with one of the darling sentiments in this set.  LOVE!  Now head over to Stacey's blog for more inspiration!

Happy Homes ~ Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge




Hi everyone!  I'm back with the newest challenge over on the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…
 How adorable are those little birdhouses?  I dug out my PTI Love Lives Here set and knew that I would somehow have to use it to make a card for this challenge.  I added a "congrats" speech bubble so I could send it to the next family member or friend who moves into a new house :) Yes, love indeed grows in happy homes and grows best in small houses, with few walls to separate...well, at least according to the country song! I wonder if the writer had 4 sisters and a brother like me! HA!

Want to play along?  Head over to the Curtain Call blog for more inspiration and then join in the fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday ~ Make it Monday



 Hello friends!  I'm back with a card for PTI's Make it Monday.  We are asked to make a die cut mask and then use ink blending.  I remembered this card from Laura Bassen so took total inspiration from her amazing talent.  Nobody inks like Laura!  Thanks for stopping by...oh, I see a weekend coming up!
