You Make Me Smile


Diva Charmaine came up with a great sketch and I once again delved into my new Recollections Garden Floral paper pack, which I got at Michael's over Spring Break with a 50% off coupon - score!  Loved the navy with yellow and orange - such a striking combination.

Since there was a nice big circle and I haven't used my "U" die recently, out it came.  It looks striped but in actuality it is just crimped.  The sentiment is a partial - I just didn't ink the "you" word.  Not quite brave enough to cut my acrylic stamps yet LOL! 

That wraps up the Verve sketches for March :)  I can't believe there hasn't been a skewed panel on a sketch yet...shhhhhh.....!!!  I'm grinning from ear to ear, but I'm sure that will change soon enough :(  So, until them, I'm gleefully enjoying the sketches and all Divas have made it back into my good books LOL!

Have a fabulous day!

I love this....a fun mix of colors and patterns! You should GO for cutting your stamps....a wonderful idea! I haven't regretted it at all. Just start with one you don't use very often!!! Then if you decide you don't like it, you haven't spoiled any favs!!

So cute, Marisa! But isn't there one more March sketch? You're not out of the woods with the skewed panels yet! ; )

that U does looked striped...cool! I think with a little more coaxing, you'll be able to snip a stamp!! The first one is always the hardest....however, you were able to ink this up perfectly...I'm not so accurate so then I bring out the big guns, er scissors! LOL
