Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #87

Good afternoon! I think I'm all recovered from the Verve Release party last night. It was so fun chatting it up, finding out who will be at CHA, and getting to see the new sets in all their glory. I ordered a few of them and will anxiously be watching the mail for their arrival! A quick thanks to all of the incredible Divas and Guest Divas for the gorgeous creations to ooh and awe over all week long. :)

I really wanted to play along with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch this week. I love the sketch and have seem some amazing cards created with it! It seems sad to say it, but I really wanted to use something other than my October Afternoon dp. I think I'm becoming too reliant upon it. Other dps are now stumping me! lol

I reached for some PTI Green Boutique and some Bitty Dots... Always good backups. :) Instead of pulling the Ripe Avocado color from the dp, I decided to lighten the whole thing up by using Spring Moss instead. And I really love the look of it! New color combos are always a pleasant treat. I used the balloons and a sentiment from my Everyday Button Bits set, but had to curve the sentiment to make it fit properly.

There's not much more to this card. It's fairly simple and self-explanatory. Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps- PTI: Everyday Button Bits
Paper- Hawaiian Shores, Whisper White, Green Boutique dp, Bitty Dots dp
Ink- Basic Black, Hawaiian Shores
Accessories- ribbon, tea dye stain, buttons

  1. That was one fast moving thread last night!! Can't believe I messed up and showed up late. Know I read the start time but defaulted to the normal start time! Had to go back today and read through the pages I had missed and look at all the wonderful cards! Wowzers, is all I can say! Maureen did such an amazing job - yeah Canada (sorry, had to get a little patriotic LOL!)

    This is my favorite Verve release because of all the flower sets! Oh my...I'm in Verve flower heaven LOL! Ordered Great Friend, Kind Words, Dream Big and the Plain Jane. Can't wait to get them. Hopefully the border's black hole won't suck them up and make them take forever to get here.

    Love how you used Mercy's sketch. The white outlining is great as are the DPs. I used it for my Curtain Call card for tomorrow. Will be a go to sketch for sure! Your button balloons are fabulous as are the DPs. I was in such a rush to get the stamps from PTI that I totally forgot about the papers and buttons. If the Garage Sale goes well, I'll be back for some.

    Any word from school yet?? Hope it isn't a last minute rush...

    Gotta run and water the neighbour's plants (they're on vacation). Enjoy Pastor Jeff for me tomorrow :D
