Fluttering By The Verve Release Sketches


** This is my second post of the day.  Scroll down for my Curtain Call card for this week. **

Yes, two posts in one day!!  This is going to be a "feast week" on the old blogola because of the Verve Release Sketches :)  Julee has come up with another wonderful set of sketches, and this is my crack at the first one.

When deciding which Verve set to use, this butterfly just called my name.  It's still one of my all time favorite Verve sets.  Finally used this Martha Stewart Border punch I've had for a while and quite like the effect it has on the card.   One down and four to go!

The kids start their second round of swimming lessons on Monday so I'll be doing my laps and hopefully have kept some of the fitness factor from the first two week set so I'm not dozing on the couch the first few days again.  It will feel fabulous to cool off because we are having some nasty, hot weather up here again - ugh!  30C (92 F) with humidity and no air conditioning makes for sticky stamping LOL!  Thankfully the nights are cooling down a fair bit so sleeping is tolerable.

Thanks for popping in and I'll be back soon with my next Verve sketch card.  The release is this Friday over on SCS on the Verve Forum so if you want to have some fun on a Friday night, come on over and join us :D

ahhh ... a heat wave would be nice to have ... the other day, we had a total "vancouver" weather day -- socked in and pouring ... ugh ...

Love the colorus of your card, Marisa! Beautiful edge punching too!

Oh Marisa, this is absolutely darling! I love that butterfly stamp set and after seeing your lovely card, I'm gonna get me that! I love the soft delicate colors that you use and the crisp, clean lines that are your signature style. Wonderful job with the sketch.

Way to rock this sketch, Marisa! Great border punch! You go, girl, with the swimming! We filled in our in-ground pool with dirt and there's an additional garage area where it once was. I miss it, but with the kids grown and gone, it wasn't getting used and needed major repairs.
