Thank So Much A La Moe


I'm working my way through the March Verve sketches.  This one was created by Diva Maureen. 

Since I missed making it before St. Patrick's Day, a flower replaced the shamrock (sorry Moe) and where there is a flower you can almost count on me adding a butterfly.  Any excuse to use flowers and butterflies on a card :) 

Three sketches down and one to go.  Back tomorrow with my card for the last sketch and then the waiting begins yet again to see if you get randomly selected as the lucky winner of a $100 gift certificate to Verve.

We are back into the swing of school and all the kids' activities again and it feels good to be back into a routine (insert happy mommy LOL).  Enjoy your day and thanks for spending a bit of yours with me :)  



What's In It? 
Stamps: Celebration of Thanks (Verve)
Paper: Garden Florals (Recollections), Rose Red, More Mustard, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip
Ink:  Black
Accessories:  Doily and Flower Dies (PTI), Flutterby and Charming Banner Dies (Verve), Sizzix Leaf Die, Labels 18 Nestie, Crimper, Brown Half Pearls, Bling, Button, Twine, Glue Dot, Dimensionals

Haha...I thought your blog post title was a misprint...that it should be a la "mode" and I got all excited with the prospect of ice cream! But then I was more excited when I saw your card! Love use of the sketch...AND of orange...which I usually find difficult to work with, but you have proven, my friend, that you can make it sing! Ok, off to get some ice cream... :)

I dunno Marisa, you take the most unlikely (for me) colour combos, put 'em together and hey presto! A fabulous creation! Wish I had your nose for colours! xxx

These warm colors are to die for, Marisa! That's a beauty of a card. :)

so glad you got the chance to play :) Don't worry about the shamrock...I've sadly put mine away this year too :( Love the orange and pink!

Ah, glad the happy Mommy is back! ;) I love the colors you picked for this sketch, and you just keep adding those butterflies. I never tire of seeing one!

Beautiful layering, and I just love the tiny debossed dots on the flower. What a happy color combo, too!
