Viva La Verve! Sketch Challenge for a Friend

Hi and welcome back! This is going to be a week of mixed emotions for me. Our son leaves Sunday for Basic Training. I am so very proud of him, but at the same time sad to see him leave.  I know he made a good choice and will have many exciting times, but a Mom still hates to see her boy young man leave.

Today I am sharing a card I made for a friend. It is for the Viva la Verve challenge for week 3… There, I admitted it…I’m still a week behind….UGH! I need to hurry and get week 4 done!

OK, I’m going to get right to it, so here is my card:


I have been purchasing some new DSP and this is one of them!  Actually, two: Both are K&Company: Sweet Nectar and Brenda Walton Postcard Pad. I fell in love with all of the colors and thought it would be fun to mix it up for a change. I am usually pretty predictable so I’m hoping I am showing you cards that you don’t really expect from me.


Rubber Stamp Tapestry has some new stamp sets and this is one of them! This one is called Polish Inspirations Peg Stamp Set and includes 5 peg stamps (1 Mini, 2 tiny, 2 bitty sizes). I just LOVE these stamps for their flexibility, lovely details, and sweet images. The "Friend" Block Stamp (1" x 1.5") is also from RST.


Are you in love with that sage seam binding yet? I am! It is so gorgeous and matches the color in this brad perfectly.


A pretty pink Prima flower, so little blue flowers from AC Moore, purple twine and a Tim Holtz brad finish off my bow.

I really love this sketch and can see me using it again!

I am so happy to have flowers blooming all winter. These are my Hellebore Lenten Roses that just love to bloom during the winter. That is specifically why I planted them. I just could not stand going all winter without something pretty to look at.  I just love the purple and green….maybe that is why I am using those colors so much lately!


Here is the Viva La Verve week 3 sketch:


In addition to this challenge, I made this card for:

Mynnette’s Spread the L-O-V-E challenge since this is going to a new friend of mine!
