Viva la Verve!

Good wet afternoon. I'm trying not to float away, blow away, or be struck by lightning. There hasn't been any lightning for about 20 minutes now, so I figured it might be safe to jump online and post this card to share with you all. But in the meantime, it is absolutely dumping rain and the wind is whipping it around like there's no tomorrow. It's one of those days where I'm glad that I have nowhere to be. I can just stay home, curled up under a blanket, and enjoy the sounds of the rain on the roof, the wind in the trees, and the thunder rattling the windows (aka, a perfect day!).

Uh oh, the thunder just started again, so we're going to make this quick. I played along with this week's Viva la Verve sketch (Which was sooo fun to play with! I'm definitely going to use this sketch again!), and pulled out some new dp while I was at it. The dp is Echo Park's Little Girl mixed in with some Pacific Vineyard from PTI. I stamped three balloons from Verve's Birthday Bash, two onto dp and one onto white cardstock to be colored with my copics. I popped them up with various layerings of dimensionals, added some twine for their ribbons, and a little gingham bow to tie them together. I masked the sentiment, also from Birthday Bash, to split it onto the two banners.

Ok. Enough for today. Gotta get this computer off! Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps- Verve: Birthday Bash
Paper- Whisper White, Kraft, Echo Park Little Girl, Pacific Vineyard (PTI)
Ink- Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories- twine, apron lace punch, ribbon, corner rounder punch, dimensionals, copics, white gel pen

  1. Love the mix of DPs and white outlining. Darling bow on the balloons too. You rocked this sketch! Sounds like you are having quite the rain storm!! Perfect inside day :)

    Thanks for your comments on my blog. I have to wait until they post today's sermon on the site (usually by Tues) and can't wait to hear it!! I have given this site to so many people I can't count any more. Thanks SO much for posting it on your blog!!! I am forever grateful as my parched soul from the trauma at our church is sooooo richly filled week after week.

    Not sure if you have the same spring break as we do or not. If you do - enjoy your week off! If it's still coming it can't be too many sleeps away :)
