You Are Beautiful


 
Another great Verve sketch this week. I can't beleive my luck!!  No skewed panel sketches for five weeks in a row!  Makes for a very happy Marisa LOL!

Can't wait for spring to arrive so while digging through my DP pile I found this lovely floral paper from my Costco pack and decided to use it to "wish" spring here early.

My Verve "U" die came out to play again, and I paired it with a portion of a sentiment from Fabulous You.  Also got to play with my new MFT flower die - love birthday money!!

Sorry about the dark picture.  We have had a few gloriously sunny days, and as a result, I have forgotten what time of day is best for picture taking!  Cloudy skies do have their advantages LOL!  Will try to retake it later today.  New picture is up!

Remember:  You are beautiful :)  Enjoy your day!

Lovely, lovely, Marisa! I adore that beautiful ribbon you used. The color really says Spring and so does the paper. Another 5-6 weeks and my hostas will start to appear and then everything comes alive. Yea!

This is beautiful Marisa. I am ready for some sunshine too. We have had a gloomy month so far. January was amazing so I am spoiled. The color combo here is perfect for a sunny smile.

Fabulous colors and the textured U is perfect!!! Wish I could tie a bow like that!!!

Kristina said...

What a wonderful, springy card! Love that cheery dp and the gorgeous bow!

You want spring? You need to come down here! I don't think winter got the message that it is supposed to be cold and rainy this year. To put it into perspective, we have been in the 70s-80s for the last two months! I want WINTER!!!! Lol
