Viva La Verve for Mother's Day
Well, I totally forgot about this post I wrote a while back, sharing the Mother's Day card I made for my mom. I still had a few edits to make to my post, but then never hit the "publish" button I guess! I made this card using stamps and dies from Verve and the Viva la Verve Sketch from May, Week One. Gosh, it's been a while since I played along in one of those....What is my PROBLEM!?!? The sketches are awesome!
I used three different older sets and two of the newer dies from Verve--Ribbon Banner and All Aflutter (both are must-haves!). The stamped frame is from Fabulous You (I love the sentiments in this set, too!), the quote is from Feel the Sun, and the "Happy Mother's Day" is from Happy Thoughts from way back when Verve was "just a baby".
Ok, as ya'll probably noticed, I didn't do any other blogging all week! It's making me mad!! I haven't had a single spare minute to get my craft on! I'll be SO GLAD when Thursday next week comes when the girls will be out of school and I "supposedly" will have more time to play! That IS the way it works, right? Please say yes.
Meanwhile, I want ya'll to be aware that there's still a few more days to take advantage of the May SALE from Verve, and this month we're featuring masculine sets and dies for Dads and Grads. So be sure to hop on over to our SALE page to see our May deals & steals!
We've also extended our sale on our latest release collection, so if you haven't had a chance to pick up these wonderful sets and dies, now is your chance! Save 15% through June 4 when you purchase the April Release Collection.
SUSIE Q-TIP: While using your wonderful butterfly dies from Verve, be sure and cut more than one and layer them on top of each other for more dimension. I even used two different patterns for the butterfly on this card. Play around with it...there aren't any rules.
