In Love with CTD and Verve




I just loved this week's Color Throwdown combo so decided to play along and use it for a Valentines' Day card as it would be fun to make one using these non-traditional colours.  I had to sub mellow moss for the olive and white for the vanilla, so hopefully the CTD police won't be too upset with two substitutions.  I really wanted to use this DP again as it caused white overload on yesterday's card and the kraft was a great solution to my issue :)

This Verve sketch created last year by none other than the uber talented Verve Diva, Amy Sheffer and is one I really liked working with as it is perfect for the Verve U die that was calling my name again (love that die!).  This time, I even added a tag o the sketch.  It is a very similar card to my first one using this sketch.  You can see it here if you like.

Our cold snap is over and the warm weather is coming in along with lots of rain and/or freezing rain for part of today - oh joy!   A few degrees colder and we would have been dumped on with snow - much to the kids disappointment as they have loved playing and sledding in the snow.  My fingers and toes will be thankful for the warmer weather as standing on the sledding hill for 45 minutes after school does not make them very happy LOL!

Have a fabulous day and thanks for sharing a bit of yours with me :)
