A Day To Remember...

Verve

I am  having a Verve hang over LOL!  The release party was amazing and a wonderful culmination to three weeks of living, breathing, stamping and creating cards for the Verve Sneak Peeks and Release Party.

I have now rerintroduced myself to my family (I think they are taking me back LOL), and after cleaning up the aftermath of my last three weeks of creativity (aka: messy craft room), I am sitting here ever so thankful for the wonderful opportunity Julee provided me through being a Guest Diva for the amazing Four Year Anni-Verve-sary release.

The Divas are one seriously talented group of ladies, and I gathered as much "Diva Dust" as I could after being able to partake in this release and rub shoulders with them behind the scenes.  So thank you once again Julee and Diva's for providing me with not only a Day to Remember, but an experience to remember too!  This card is for you (((HUGS)))!!

What a perfect sentiment for your experience! You deserve to be a full-time Diva, IMHO. You did an amazing job with all of the new sets this month. I need you to teach me how to ruffle ribbon so perfectly--mine never looks as nice as yours!

Verve should be very proud of you Marisa! You have showcased their stamps to perfection. I LOVE your work to bits! xxx

Maureen said...

yes, it definitely was a time to remember..and so fun having you with us on the other side :D LOVE this cheery little beauty and gorgeous layered flowers :) I've got a list of things to do...one is to pay shaw a little visit...the house is a mess with little bits of things here and there...just have to bite the bullet and get 'er done! Hope the water is working soon for you :) (ps...it's always a little difficult picking a fav for the After Party...I usually have 3 or 4 that I just really loved making...then it's eeny meeny miny moe! lol)

Marisa...you are just the sweetest gal ever and I enjoyed every milli-second of your guest spot with Verve! All your cards are incredible...I no longer believe in your "one creative gene" theory as you have blown that out of the water with the amazingness you've showcased this past week! I so loved being able to share this awesome experience with you...and I can remember feeling the "Verve withdrawl" after my guest spot...Verve is such a special place to work/play and all the Divas, especially Julee, are the best! And so are you! BIG ((((HUGS)))) coming cross country to you, my dear!

You are just so cute! I am sooooo happy you had a chance to do your Diva thing, and I can tell you loved every second of it. Great job too! Loving this scrunchy satin ribbon here today. :)

Hi Marisa, I think I enjoyed your time with the girls as much as you did as your cards gave me so much pleasure to see! I loved them all and I am constantly in awe of what you produce. Thank you! Today's card is bo exception! xx

Marisa, this is beautiful! Love that ribbon treatment! You had amazing sneak peeks last week and I enjoyed visiting your blog to see what wonderful creations you had!

Wanda Cullen said...

What a lovely card to pay tribute to what had to be a super experience! That was a HUGE release and you rocked it with the rest of the divas! Thanks for your advice about looking on ebay for the satin roses...I did find some (not in the gradient sizes I prefer), but they will work. Thanks again for being such a great cyber friend!

Benzi said...

What beautiful orange blooms and a super card. So glad you had a wonderful time in the GD spotlight.

This is the perfect ending to your reign! You did an amazing body of work - just gorgeous! You rocked it - congrats :)

Big hugs - and even though I didn't manage to comment on all of your amazing creations last week (and then I wound up busy on Friday night and totally missed the release party - insert sad face here) I just love everything you created for the Anni-Verve-sary party. Awesome work!! And what a release! Wowza. So, congrats again on a most successful time as a Guest Diva!

This is just so darn cute. I love those flowers and the ruffled ribbon at the bottom of the card. The button centers are darling.

Bear Hugs,
Carol
