Viva la Verve!

I am on the ball with my Viva la Verve sketches this month! This is going to be only the second or third month this entire year I've finished all of the sketches. It's been a busy year...

When I first saw the sketch, I had a mild panic attack about the number of different panels on it. That's a whole lot of coordinating dp! Fortunately, dp comes in lovely little packs nowadays with papers that already coordinate with themselves. Saved! I pulled out some of this darling Life of the Party dp from My Mind's Eye. I love the sweet girly colors! I stamped a flower from Verve's Many Blessings three times: Once for the stem, and twice for the flower itself. I then colored both with my copics and popped up the center flower on dimensionals. I have to admit that I love how this card turned out. Sweet and simple. The dp does most of the talking. :)

Today is jam-packed, but with all sorts of summer goodness. I'm off to church this morning, and then heading over to my grandma's house to share my pictures from Italy with her. Then I'm off to another friend's house for some swimming and BBQ! With this heat wave, I've been dying to get into someone's pool.

I hope your weekend has been and remains relaxing and enjoyable! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Stamps- Verve: Many Blessings, Thankful Accents
Paper- Sweet Blush, Dark Chocolate, Whisper White, MME's Lime Twist Life of the Party dp

  1. ah, I love these papers too and have that exact pad!! I agree, stick to one collection for multi panels!! LOL These colours remind me of the new paper coming from PTI this month :) May have to pick some up at Stampafaire :) My sketch is coming up next week...hope you play along too!! Would be so cool if you won the next's the Anniverve-sary next month!! woohoo!! Hugs and enjoy our beautiful summer off!!

  2. I am sweating bullets about this sketch. I am lucky if I get one piece of DP on a card never mind having to get four - eeeeek!!! Will see how I make out. If you see smoke rising from the North it is my brain trying to get this one figured out LOL!

    Sounds like you have a great day planned. Two weeks behind on listening to Jeff and can't wait to catch up. Enjoy the swimming and BBQ - a perfect match for a summer day :)
