New Mercies


I'm behind on this months Verve's sketches so it's catch up time!

I needed a sympathy card for a friend whose mother recently died, and immediately went to Verve's fabulous New Mercies set.  So many fabulous sentiments for these difficult times - thank you, Julee :)   Loving these new Verve flower dies so they mysteriously appeared on this card ;)

Pulled out some DP from my dwindling Costco DP pack I got five years ago and matched it up with some purples.

One down and two more sketches to go.  Back soon with the next one :)  Until then, have a great day!

Love your colors and flowers. I'm having trouble getting the loops to remove from the nesties dies without bending or tearing. Do you have a secret for neat loops?
Thanks, Janelle, harvestmoon50@cox.net
