May Viva La Verve Sketch

 photo VLVMay2018pic.jpg

It is May which means it is time for a new Viva La Verve sketch!  I have been so busy the past six weeks packing and moving my mom into a retirement home and then staging and trying to sell her townhouse that sitting and creating a card was wonderful therapy!

Julee has provided another fabulous sketch and I used it to create a Mother's Day card for my mom.  Love this verse from Proverbs from Scripture Medley 3, as it truly does describe my wonderful mother ♥  She is 84 and a real trooper.  We had a limited window of time to get things done before she moved and she rose to the challenge and then some.  Glad to say she is settled and loving her room and living at the retirement home which brings me great joy!!

Mixed a few papers for the sketch, and needed a pop of contrast so did some accents in black and added the butterfly from Butterfly Grace for good measure {grin}.  I apologize for the poor lighting.  Still very busy and being home for good lighting has been a bit of a challenge!

Come and join us over on the Viva La Verve blog!  Enter a card using the above sketch and you could win some new Verve!

Have a fabulous day!

Marisa, this is a gorgeous card using this sketch, and I really love this Scripture verse. I especially love the butterfly and your beautiful color combination. Praise God for your mom and how He has given her strength and the ability to settle into her new retirement home. That's not an easy thing for either of you. So hard to have these dramatic changes in our seasons of life. Sending hugs and love, sweet friend! xoxo
