A Verve Thank You
This sketch made me go "hmmm"....when I first saw it. Took a few days to wrap my mind around it and finally decided to go fall back on my flower crutch. And if it's going to be a flower, chances are it will be a Verve flower at that :) So...out came Verve's Dream Big set and my scissors (matching dies for this set would be reeeeally nice....hint, hint Julee LOL!).
I combined the sketch with an older CR84FN challenge of kraft, yellow and a neutral, such a great colour combo, even if I used two neutrals instead of just one LOL! Verve's Curvy Bookplate die was a given as it is the one used in the sketch and I just love it. A little poetic license with the top and bottom panels by using the flowers in lieu of the circles and leaves in lieu of the bows, and then back to the sketch for the center panel so the Verve police won't get me ;) Sorry about the dark picture, was too late in the afternoon to take a good shot.
My daughter has settled into a nice routine at school after the trauma of the first few days last week (yeah!!). She is armed with a new cell phone (birthday present a few weeks early) so she can text/call me and/or friends when/if she needs to, so I think she will be just fine. I got a new phone as well so I'm can now text and I must say, this Lite Smart phone as it's called is amazing! Best part is I got Angry Birds loaded on it at the store and it is great incentive for the kids to do their chores and homework because after they are done they can play it LOL!
Off to work on week two's sketch. Enjoy your day :)
