I haven't stamped for about two weeks and it feels wonderful to do so again! The kids are back in school and hubby is back at work, and this introvert is thoroughly enjoying the quiet house and some much needed alone time :D Can you hear the "aaaaah" all the way from where you are LOL!
Amber has come up with a fabulous new twist for the 2010Verve sketches. This year she will be using inspiration pictures as the twist. Every month she will focus on a different room in a house and you can play to your hearts content without worrying about a twist -- at least that is wonderful for me because more than once last year I had to make a second card because I forgot to add the twist to the sketch LOL! I have only done one inspiration challenge to date, so this will stretch me and get the old juices going! In addition, each month's winner will will not only win the entire Verve release, but they will also get to be the Guest Sketch Diva for the next month. That means they get to provide a sample of Amber's sketch for all of us to enjoy when she first posts it. What a fabulous opportunity and change of pace for all of us :D
I chose this inspiration sketch to work from. I love black, red and white cards and a little gray thrown in never hurts anyone :D That being said, the picture I chose was an easy default for me! Plus, since I love flowers, what more can I ask for LOL! !I kept with the flower theme in the picture by using Verve's Floral Whimsy. Some black half pearls gave the image a bit of dimension and I used Verve's Circular Sayings for the sentiment and added three red Tiny Twinkles to balance things off. I used my much loved Martha Stewart heart border punch for the red panel and finished things off with some sheer black ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by today :D I'm off to work on Mercy's Tuesday sketch next and then the Mojo Monday sketch. Have a great day!
