Viva La Verve Sketch - January 2018

 photo VLVJan2018pic.jpg

Was setting up this post and realized it has been over a month since I have posted - my apologies!  And Happy New Year to everyone!!    After such a busy and stressful year last year, our family literally shut the world out for two weeks over Christmas and it ended up carrying over for a few more weeks into the New Year.  Glad to say, the time off/away did wonders and I am ready to face all 2018 brings our way.

Sure felt good to get inky again and what better way to create than to use a Viva La Verve sketch and some Verve Stamps.  Still miss Mojo Monday so this is a good filler.

Haven't made any Valentine's Day/heart cards for a while so it was the perfect excuse.  Pulled out Stronger Love for the sentiments and the Heart Quartet , Wavy Hearts and  Scalloped Trim Trio dies for the plethora of hearts on the card - can you tell I love hearts {grin}!  Heck just realized even the paper has hearts on it - oh my!  Now that I look at the card, I realize I put the bow on the wrong side - serves me right for not making a card for so long lol.

Would love to have you join us over on the Viva La Verve blog.  Simply create a card using the sketch and add it to the link up for a chance to win some Verve!  

Wishing you all a fabulous 2018 and I look forward to creating and posting again :)

Marisa, I'm so glad you had some time to unplug a while and just enjoy Christmas and into the New Year. I wish more people would do that. It's such a special time of year, and it's so nice you felt recharged after a time. I love your card with all the beautiful hearts and love the sentiment! Truly sweet and special for the right person! Love the DP and your great take on the sketch! You sure do well with sketches. That's one area I struggle with (among others...haha!), but I hope I can try one soon. Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
