So Glad God Chose You As My Aunt
This week's Verve sketch is brought to us by my blogging friend and Verve Diva, Maureen. Always love her sketches and this is my crack at it.
A large circle on a sketch is always a big draw for me, and it was perfect for this sentiment on my aunt's birthday card. She's out visiting from Ontario and it has been wonderful being able to see her again. Darn 3,000 across Canada from our province to hers is such a nuisance!! Our visits are way too few and far between. Good news is my cousin will also be heading out this way on Thursday and we will have one big family bash :) Well, as big as our family gets anyway LOL!
Sorry....I regressed....back to our scheduled programming....Verve's Love Deepens is such a great set! There are many names you can use with the first part of the sentiment (Mom, Niece, Aunt, Grandma to name a few) which lets you personalize it accordingly, in this case, it is my aunt :)
I combined the sketch with this week's Colour Q as I just loved not only the inspiration picture but the colour combo too! Even better, My Mind's Eye Blink of an Eye DP is a perfect match :) A nice little bonus is the fact this card qualifies for this week's Paper Players challenge too so it is another three-for! What can I say, small things make me happy LOL!
Thoroughly enjoying looking at my planted baskets, pots and flowers in my garden. This weekend's hard work paid off and will provide many months of enjoyment. I just LOVE flowers - real and paper :)
Glad you chose to pop by today, I always appreciate the company!
