It's a Verve-y Kind of Day

Well, today's a big busy day in Lilesland. The girls are out of school today (and Monday and are currently making forts with every blanket we own), we need to go do a little shopping for 2 birthday parties tomorrow and I've got lots of cards to make today. Why? Because tonight's the big Verve release! Here's the card I did for my Sneak Preview and an excerpt from the Verve blog:

"Hello Verve fans! It’s me, Susan. Are ya’ll ready for another Verve release? If so, hold on tight, because it’s going to be a wild ride! The stamps this time are exquisite, but we don’t expect anything less from Julee, now, do we? I’m sharing a card with you today using the new Celebrate You set. It consists of 7 stamps; 6 of which are some fabulous and unique sentiments and the last one is that fun flourish I used to make an awesome handcut border on this card. I thought the sentiment called for a masculine look, so that’s the direction I took (this time!). The sentiment and border is heat embossed. It reminded me of the trendy “tattoo” look in menswear, as I paired it with argyle paper and a little fleur de lis texture with some shimmer on the black panel. I can almost smell the cologne counter in Macy’s! Hunky!"

Anyway, if you're a Dirty Dozen Fan Club member, you can see a couple more of my sneak peeks on there, as today's the 15th of the month and the DD gallery is OPEN with 2 new fabulous designers! I've got some of my favorite projects to date in there this month! I'll be sad to see my term end next month.

Be sure and check out all the peeks on the Verve Blog for your chance to win some new stamps and I'll see ya'll at the Release Party tonight right HERE!
