Having a Verve-y Memorial Day Weekend
Well, Happy Saturday, Happy Memorial Day Weekend and Happy Memorial Day Weekend SALE from Verve (more on that in a minute)! I'm home this weekend nursing a sinus infection--yippee! Eric took me to the doctor yesterday and he told me my nasal passages were (and I quote) 'grossly inflamed'! Did he HAVE to use the word GROSS? So I have to stay indoors the rest of the long weekend on steroids and nasal spray. UGH!! I bet I caught something from the 80+ first graders I was with on Tuesday! I don't have time for this--the kids get out of school next week.
Anyway, all this to say, I wanted to post this yesterday or the day before, but that was before I became so "grossly" sick. So here's something not so gross to think about! It's my card for May's week 4 Viva la Verve sketch challenge. A ton of luscious layers and it's been forever since I used photo corners. I think I sold that punch a while back here on my blog, so I had to make these by hand (are you out there? Sell it back to me?). I used a little old with a little new stampy goodness from Verve--Many Blessings from October of last year for the flowers (stamped twice, cut out and popped up), and Hope Blooms from April's release for the sentiment (I LOVE the font combo!). For the embellishment, there's that Flutterby Die again--It's my favorite butterfly die for the moment!!
Ok, here's a look at the sketch thought up by the luscious Charmaine. Fun, huh!?! It's not too late to play along with us and be a Sketch Champion! Get all the info HERE in our Splitcoast forum (as always, the fabulous Julee is offering prizes!).
Need to get a little Memorial Day shopping done? Verve is having a sale just for you! 20% off all stamps and 10% off all dies from May 27th to May 31st. And don't forget to head back over here to susiestampalot on the 1st for another inspiring Diva Inspirations Blog Hop!
SUSIE Q-TIP: String beads make nice butterfly bodies. I bet you won't find that sentence anywhere else on the web. Except maybe at Pizzazz Aplenty where the beads, the flatback pearls and the brown twine came from. They "may" possibly be having a sale as well! hehe.
