Oh Boy! {VLVOct2011}


Hi there and happy Saturday!  I hope you're all having a great weekend!  We're just hanging out today all tired from a sleepover last night that involved four 12 year old girls!  I'm happy to say we survived but we're all a bit tired and maybe a bit cranky.......

I have a card to show you today that I made yesterday for this week's Viva la Verve sketch over in the Verve forums on SCS!  Charmaine is our host this week and she gave us a wonderful sketch to work with.  I did go a bit rebel by making the circle a square though.

My youngest brother and his wife are expecting a baby SOON.....next week to be exact, and we are all very excited!  I made this card to give to them once my nephew, David, is born!  I feel so organized having a card done BEFORE hand!  HA!

I used one of my fave Verve sets of all time, To the Moon.  The bear was colored with Copics, was cut out and popped up over the frame.  I tied the kites to his arm with some Brown Sugar Divine Twine.  The card was finished with some buttons, adhesive pearls, some lace and machine stitching!  


We'd love to have you play along!  If you complete all the sketches for October, you'll be entered to win a Verve gift certificate!  You can see all the challenge details here!


Well, that's all from me today!  Thank you all so much for stopping by!
