Yeah! Viva La Verve Sketches Are Back!
Now that it is January, the Friday Viva La Verve sketches are back and this is my card for the first sketch of 2012.
I went with a Valentine's theme as I just love making cards with hearts on them (you may very well get sick of seeing them as we work our way toward Valentine's Day!).
I paired a Spellbinder heart with an embossed "U" from Verve's I Heart You die set and added the hugs and kisses tag for a little extra something. I may use it as hubby's Valentine's Day card as it has clean lines and not a lot of fru-fru stuff on it.
As far as the car issues goes, looks like the damage was all cosmetic - yeah! - so we should get it back by the end of next week. The irritating part of this whole experience is the fact we were blamed for 75% of the accident!!! When I asked why we are taking the bulk of the blame, I was told when you are turning left on a residential street (versus an intersection) it is your responsibility to make sure it is safe to turn left, which includes watching out for someone who is coming up behind you! Still haven't quite wrapped my mind around the logic of this rule as that is what blinkers are for (and the adjuster even admitted many people do not know about this rule....I wonder why???!!!). Ridiculous is the polite word I'm using for my thoughts regarding this law and outcome to our accident!! However, we are thankful nobody got hurt so we are choosing to focus on that instead.
Wishing you a fabulous weekend. Planning on getting some inky time myself which bodes well for some posts next week :)
