Happy Birthday New Verve Peacock

I've used the Peacock image from the new Verve set Moments Remembered with a Birthday sentiment from an older set. The dotty ribbon is from Verve as well, I use it all the time cause if goes with everything. Thanks for looking!

Mojo Monday 355 + New Verve

 I usually have my Mojo Monday card ready before Saturday but a nasty flu put me behind this week. The good news is that my new Verve order came yesterday so it gave me the extra push I needed to make this card. Love the latest Verve release but I see in my excitement I forgot to finish the top of the card :) I have some aqua bakers twine I can add. Thanks for looking!

Freshly Made Sketches 146 & Merry Monday 118 Buttons & Ribbon

This week's Merry Monday Challenge was to use Buttons & Ribbon on a Christmas card and I've combined this challenge with the Freshly Made Sketch 146. I did plan to use more than one button, I was going to put small buttons on my stars but I ended up using smaller stars and didn't have small enough buttons :) , so one large button is was along with some Verve ribbon, sentiment stamp and star die. I've also flipped the sketch so that I didn't cover up the deer image on my paper, he's too cute to cover up. Thanks for looking!

Merry Monday 117 & Freshly Made Sketches 145

I've used the Freshly Made Sketch 145 with this week's Merry Monday Challenge, use sequins on your Christmas card. I love combining challenges, I need lots of guidance lol. My sequins are hard to see, I didn't have any nice bright coloured ones and the ones I have kind of blend in with the paper. Below is a closer shot of the sequins and I also used Verve stamps & dies to make this card. Thanks for looking!

The Paper Players 204 & Viva la Verve July Week 2

I'm using the Paper Players 204 Colour Challenge to try and catch up on July Viva La Verve. This week I'm using the week 2 sketch, I still need to do week 1 LOL. Love the colours in the colours challenge, had a little trouble finding the right blue and then it always photographs a little differently:) Anyway, this card uses Verve stamps, dies and ribbon, thanks for looking!

Freshly Made Sketches 144 & Diva Inspirations

 I've used the July Diva Inspiration Challenge and this week's Freshly Made Sketch to make this birthday card. The colours I used are from the Inspiration Challenge Red, White & You and I chose the sort of light blue as my optional colour. The stamps and dies I used are from Verve, the red background paper I think is Stampin Up.  Thanks for looking!

Mojo Monday 353 & Merry Monday Green + White

I've used a few different Verve holiday stamp sets and the Verve Charming Oval Die with this week's Mojo Monday and Merry Monday Challenge. This week's Merry Monday 116 Challenge is to use shades of green & white with neutrals, so I went with kraft as the neutral and followed the Mojo Monday sketch. I've also used some stickles to sparkle things up, thanks for looking!

Freshly Made Sketches 143 & Paper Players 203 Theme Challenge

I've used the Freshly Made Sketch 143 (just under the deadline) and the Paper Players 203 Theme Challenge, Lets Go to the Beach, to make a Birthday Card for my little Great-Nephew. I've used some Verve dies and stamps and a Papertrey Ticket Border die and a Penguin stamp I got years ago at Michaels. The shell & starfish images are a sticker. Thanks for looking!
