Beautiful You A La Verve

Catching up on my Verve sketches and this week's sketch is brought to us by Amber.

I do enjoy making square cards as they are very easy to balance.   Since I don't own any doilies, I dug into my "to be used later" pile and gleefully used three items from the bin - score!   Now I just have to make about 50 more cards to use up the rest of the scraps from that bin!

Just love this sentiment and the elegant font!  Dressed it up a bit with pearls, bling and a rose.  Had to giggle too, as red seems to be my accent colour of choice this week.

My body is adjusting to early rising again so I'm not quite firing on all pistons today!  Kids had a harsh reality with their wake up times too so I'm in good company LOL!  Glad it's a short week and I'm sure we will all sleep in a bit on Saturday.

Have a great day and thanks for popping by!

The combination of the elegant font and gorgeous rose is perfect in my book! And yahoo for using up some scraps!

This is beautiful and even when we are "stashing" and feel like we never will go back to it - it is always to find little treasures in our stash :)Just know that you are not alone in "stashing". Always love to see your cards - they are such an inspiration.

Gorgeousness overload!!! The red is to die for on ribbon AND the lovely rose. The green shade is perfect and the dash of black fits beautifully. Love it Marisa! xxx

Well, congrats on using pieces from your bin. That's something I need to do more often. Actually right now I just need to get creating cards again....it's been way too long....and then maybe work on my bin;)
I love the way all the elements of this card work together. Love the pearl and sweet rose. The pop of red is so pretty.

This is super elegant, Marisa! I like it a lot. :)

I've been keeping up with your blog via email updates but don't always make it over here to comment in a timely fashion. (sheepish look inserted here) Life is just FLYING by, and I don't know where my time goes! LOved your photos taken of the starfish (thought they were fake at first!) - oh those colors! - and the otters. Aw! They're one of my fave animals, too. Your kids are growing up beautifully, and my does your daughter look SO much like you. Wow! Big hugs!
