Get Well Soon

Verve

We are off and starting a new year of Verve sketch challenges. This year, we have a twist in the  mist.  Once a month there will be an inspiration picture with the sketch for that week which you can include in your card if you like. This week's inpsiration picture is lovely.

The turquoise and orange make such a striking and wonderful colour combo.  I immediately thought of MME's On The Bright side paper pack and pulled out this wonderful rusty/orange paper.  In lieu of the two side circles, I used butterflies.

Kids are still off school this week so not too much crafty time, but lots of family time which is great :)   Working on cleaning out a few areas of the house and it feels good!  Maxed out on puzzle making so back into reading now.  Soon enough we will be back into the throws of a busy schedule so I am savoring the rest of our time together.

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Very pretty and it even has orange in it. ha! I don't do well with orange.
Kids go back tomorrow for us here. I have the urge to do some closet cleaning and laundry room cleaning myself. Kids aren't too thrilled about the closet cleaning though. :0)
