I {heart} my Verve...

Verve had a release tonight and part of the festivities was a week long sketch challenge. There were five sketches and I managed to get all five done before the deadline. This first sketch also doubled for the Mojo Monday sketch! When I finished this card, I really appreciated the color combination. I will be repeating it for sure!
This was the second sketch from the Verve Release week sketches. You will notice some sewing on this card. I actually hand-stitched this card! I used a white gel pen to make the butterfly trail. I thought later that it would have really been cool to stitch in the butterfly trail. Oh well, next time!
This is the last card that I made and I made it this afternoon! I think it turned out quite nicely. I think this particular flower looks a bit like a lily. I wasn't quite crazy about the bow in the original sketch. I added it anyway and just adjusted the bow placement on my sketch to work better with my image! Love that Cosmo Cricket paper!!!

Here is the card that I made late last night! I took a photo of it this morning when we still had a marine layer. The photo above was in the blazing sun that the day turned into. Anyway, I have been admiring the Basic Grey Wisteria line (intact in my craft room) for some time. I finally cut into it last night! Wowzers! I love that stuff! I used some of my new dew drops that I won from Mandy at Limelight, during her 1st anniversary or birthday. The other dew drops came from my fabulous nephew who shopped right off my Christmas list for my gift! He is such a smart young man!

This last card I made yesterday afternoon. I really liked the designer paper when I bought it. I'm not sure that it is really my favorite, although I think it would make very nice manly cards. Fortunately, the Latte Kaisercraft pearls are a great match for the kraft ribbon!

Too many details to list here, check the description in my SCS gallery for the specifics.
