Did You Get Your Verve On Yet?

Sorry I've been a little absent the last couple of days. Here's the brief synopsis: My dad called a couple of days ago to let me know he had a heart attack the week before and didn't bother to call anyone while he was in the hospital for 5 days. He's going to be ok and through all of this has decided to finally own a telephone after almost 20 years without one. We all had a big scare, and are thankful he's ok. The next day, I fell down on my front porch, tripping on the step and scraped my knees, bruised my palms, elbow, shoulder and finally my cheek (on my face and managed to keep my glasses intact)! I proved the theory that "Something in motion tends to stay in motion" quite well, until they smack the concrete. I'm a bit sore. Anyway, I think all's going to be fine.
So here are the rest of the cards I made for Verve's September release. Did you get some of these fabulous new sets yet? They are GREATNESS! Be sure and check them out along with all the specails HERE. The top one I did as a pregnancy congrats card using the Black Tie Birdies---Enjoy your day, because tomorrow will never be the same!! I think this middle one is my favorite. It's a Happy Checklist! I used the sentiment set called So Happy, and sort of made it rhyme!! I also am loving that color combo!
This last one is from Some Bunny. Isn't he/she adorable? I added the little gift and the sentiment from Birthday Surprise and popped it up on a dimensional. I gave this card to my niece, Lillian for her birthday a couple of weeks ago. Try this layout, too. It was fun!!

TIP: When your flip flops are so worn out that they are really loose on your feet, you should replace them. They WILL make you trip and fall.

  1. such beautiful cards. Glad to hear that both you and your dad will be okay.


  2. OH NO!!!!! You poor girl...what a few days you've had. Dads are notorious for doing this sort of thing. I'm so happy he's ok and that he's getting a phone! As far as you go....girl, be careful! Take some time to heal your body this week, ok?


  3. OH NOOO!!! I'm sooo sorry my friend! Sure puts the "FLOP" in flip flops, huh?!! LOL. (sorry!)

    Your cards, none-the-less, are F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!! I really love that first one, and then I saw the 2nd that one too!! and the 3rd one is so sweet!! WOW...all really great cards Sus. Have a better day and get yourself some new flip flops!! =)

  4. OMG I am so glad you weren't hurt worse on your fall! Happy to hear your dad will be okay too! I've been subscribing to your blog for awhile and its all your fault I ordered the Verve September special LOL! I can't wait to get it as these will be my first Verve stamps. Great samples, I love the checklist!!

  5. These are all so gorgeous! I love the checklist idea, how cute. Can't wait till all the new releases arrive in my mailbox!

  6. SUPER cute cards!! I love all three!! So glad your dad will be fine...and that you didn't bust yourself too badly tripping on your flip-flops. (I laugh a little only because I've done the same thing.)

  7. Super cute samples!! Sorry about your fall, and your dad, but I am happy he is okay, that would be scary!!

  8. OH MY!!! I have a father like that, why bother everyone else with me!! Just call, we would rather now!! So sorry about the fall, I'll take a look at how my flip flops fit, don't want to kiss any concrete anytime soon ;)
    Back to the cards, their terrific. I love the second one with the sentiments and checks, great idea!!!!

  9. Love the cards and your tip cracks me up! I didn't realize it the other day, but I went to put my flipflop on and my foot went all the way through and I fell over as I was doing it. I looked down and my 5 lb. Yorkie had CHEWED his way through the toe part and I hadn't realized it! Very valuable tip!! :) I found your blog on Dawn Easton's by the way and I've had several of your cards at SCS that I've favorited and been a fan of! Just had to leave a comment on your story!

  10. Bless your heart Susan! I'm glad to read your Dad will be alright. He & my Mom are the only people in the U.S. not to own cell phones! And your goodness. Thankful nothing was broken. I want to brighten your day by saying your artwork is amazing!! Very creative!

  11. you make the most fun cards - thanks for sharing them :) i think your 'happy checklist' is my favorite, too!

    i'm so glad that your dad is doing alright. you need to take it a little easy yourself, too. and life goes on...

  12. I think the checklist is my favorite too! I made the near $100 mistake of checking out the new Verve stamps this week! LOL! Can't wait to get then!

    Love all these beauties!

  13. Susie: Sorry to hear about your Dad. Hope he is okay now. Sorrier to hear about your fall.....glad you didn''t break anything. That is why I don't wear flip flops or clogs.....too easy to fall. Love your stuff, as usual
