A {Birthday Birdie} Sketch For You To Try

Hi Friends!! I'm sorry I'm late in posting Jen's Sketch For You To Try today, but I forgot to charge my camera battery last night! Oopsie! Anyway, this one was really fun for me and I managed to incorporate 2 other Verve Challenges in them that are going on right now: Let's Get Krafty (Verve Project Parade) and Meet the Verve Divas #11, who is Laura Frederickson. Her challenge is to use a tag on your project. So for the "Krafty part", I pulled out some more of my favorite krafty paper with the little white polkadots from Making Memories and paired it with my new Pink Pirouette cardstock and ribbon. It's so soft and sweet! To play in Laura's challenge, I brought out my much "unloved" tag punches that I have had for so long, but haven't used in forever! The birdie is from the new Birthday Surprise set from Verve and I couldn't resist paper piecing her! The sentiment is also a new one from Verve called So Happy and HAPPY it is!! I am loving that set!! I was in a piercing mood (is that a good thing?), so I pierced almost every edge! I'll make this short and sweet today, as I really want to stamp ALL DAY! That's why I worked so hard yesterday cleaning the house--MMM!! I'm sure you have already checked out all my girlfriends' cards for this SFYTT (your favorite SCS keyword!), but in case you haven't, here's some secret passages to get you to them in a jiffy: Amy R., Amy S. (it seems we may have been on the same wavelength with our cards--both square and both using the SU! striped ribbon!), Carole, and Shannan.

Be sure and check out both of the Verve Challenges I mentioned above--of course, there are free stamps to be had!!

TIP: Tying a bow with a seperate piece of ribbon and then adhering it to the main piece of ribbon with glue dots is a lot easier than trying to tie it and get it to lay straight using one piece.

Stamps: Birthday Surprise, So Happy (Verve)
Paper: Pink Pirouette (SU!), Papertrey White, Georgia Pacific White, Kraft White Mini Dot (Making Memories)
Ink: Chocolate Chip (SU!)
Accessories: Large and Small Tag Punches (SU!), 1 1/4" Circle Punch (CM), Paper Piercer/Mat Pack, Silver Brads, Pink Pirouette Striped Ribbon (SU!), Dimensionals
