Wishing You (Could Date Jake Gyllenhaal)

Well, in all the commotion of the releases I've been involved in lately, I've slipped a little on showing off a card I made for Verve.  I love, love, love Verve stamps with all my heart, as they give me a chance to go in a completely different direction with my style as opposed to a "stamp and color" image (although some from Verve still are and that's awesome, too!)

As a designer for the Verve Diva Inspiration Team, I get to play with a few of the older sets and combine them with some of the newer goodness from Verve.  I LOVE THAT!  This time, I used the older Wishing You set to create this clean and mod birthday card.  The flower is from the newer Surely Goodness set that has coordinating dies for its flowers--Goodness Flowers.

Ok, I have to take a minute to look at some Jake Gyllenhaal pictures.  Don't ask....ok, I'm back.  Just give me a minute to regain my composure.  Don't mind the drool you see on my card.

Anyway, the sketch is the Viva la Verve sketch issued last Friday from one of our newest Verve Inspiration Divas, Anya Schrier.  Get all the details on how to play along in our sketch challenges HERE on our SCS forum.

About the J. G. pictures--my oldest daughter made me look at them.  She claims a new boyfriend of hers looks just like him.  SHE'S RIGHT!  He's a KEEPER!

Think Happy Thoughts!!!  

SUSIE Q-TIP:  When punching out small circles from a circle punch, keep them from leaping for their death to the floor by using your "chestal" area of your body to keep them on your desk in front of you.  However, when one goes missing and you have a v-neck shirt on, don't forget to look for it "there".  (Where's Jake Gyllenhaal when you need him?)  Don't ask me how I know this.  I don't want to talk about it.
