Thinking Of You Friend

 
This is the third Verve sketch for August and my last card to complete all the August sketches which qualifies me for the draw to win $100 of Verve Stamps :)  Hello!   

The background paper is a bit wild for me, but I managed to cover most of it up :)  I cut one of the PTI doily dies in half so I could mat the sentiment panel on both sides.  I then cased Diva Maureen's addition of a second, sentiment tab which compliments the focal sentiment on her card.  Such a great way to add a little something to a card.

Now I just have to wait and see who the lucky winner will be this month.  One of these times I hope it will be me!  Until then, I can't complain too loudly (okay....I can but I won't LOL) it's a great way to get four or five cards made a month!

Thanks for popping by today ((hugs))

Great ribbon, lovely paper, and super colors! This is really pretty. I think that wild paper is great. Hope you win the prize Marisa - I would love to see what you would do with $100 in new stuff!!! Hugz!

Oh happy sigh! I adore your yello, gray and kraft color combination. So fresh and modern--especially with that FAB background paper! The kraft doily is gorgi too! All 'round stunner, my friend!

I am really loving this color combo! Perfect bow and sweet little yellow twine on the button...great details on the beauty! I just read on Vicki's blog you were picking up your new Verve soon. Got mine yesterday and it's even better when it's in your hands! I was really happy to see the simple little cross stitch border for faux stitching...made me do the happy dance! :-) Great substitute when my sewing machine is being temperamental!

Good to be back - I have missed your fun cards~ Your blog looks all Fallish now, did you change the color scheme? I know that Fall is your favorite time of year~ :)

Vickie Z said...

Love these colors! The bow and doily look fabulous on this card! Your surprise is coming...just a little slower than planned....trip to the post office didn't work as quickly as I planned! It will be worth the wait...I think any who!!

This is pretty Marisa. I like the doily behind the sentiment layer. Pretty colours too.
I didn't get all the sketches done for August -I was just happy to have gotten all the challenges done for the anniversary release. I plan to change that for Sept though;)
