Viva la Verve--For the Love of Chocolate
Well, it seems like it's been forever since I posted a Viva la Verve Challenge card. I know a couple of months ago, I was able to play just about every week and I sure do miss that. So yesterday, when I sat down to stamp, I set my first priority on playing in Sankari's VLVJUN2011, Week 3 Sketch. Here, just take a look at this beauty:
I don't know why, but I've been wanting all kinds of chocolate for the past few days (for the caffeine, I'm sure--I'm trying to let up a little with the Starbuck's to save some money). So my M.O. is to call Eric on his way home from work and relate my "puppy dog eyes" through the phone lines (via 3G network) to him so that he brings me something chocolatey. At least it's cheaper than Starbuck's right?
Anyway, when I pulled out this older stamp set from Verve called Love's Flower, and saw the Love vs. Chocolate sentiment, I totally had to use it! It reminded me of my cries for "chocolate help" to Eric, who gladly stops off and picks me up a Hershey bar and we share it...one for you, two for me.
A couple of Verve-alicious things going on NOW:
1. There is still time to be a Viva la Verve Sketch Champion for June by completing all the sketches for the month (week 4 will be posted this Friday) for your chance to win some Verve-y goodness. Look for the Champions thread in our forum soon where you'll need to link all of your creations to enter.
2. Don't forget about the "For the Boys" Sale going on until the end of June. You'll save 15% on the selected stamp sets found HERE.
