Viva La Verve

Well, here I am, back again but this time with a little Viva La Verve inspiration to share.  My friend Stacey Schafer (who I can't wait to meet in person this summer!), has given us an impeccable sketch to play with:

This is the last Viva La Verve Challenge for April, so if you're interested in winning a $100 Gift Voucher to the Verve store (AND YOU SHOULD BE!) you'll need to get your entry in by May 1st at 8pm mountain time.  Get all the details HERE.

With Teacher Appreciation week fastly approaching, I thought I'd start stacking the deck ahead of time with this fun "teacher" card to give out.  I used the TEACHERS COUNT set and stamped the green background, apple background, apple and sentiment before putting it all together.  I love that the apple stamp can be colored in or stamped in with the solid shapes for the apple and leaves--makes it so fast to stamp!  I cut out the heart with the JOTTED HEART die and used the coordinating APPLES die for, yes, none other than the apple.

Ok, and because I can't resist, I've got another set of pictures of the building going on at LUCKY LOT #9!

This is when they were finishing out the framing for the upstairs.  This is the view of the back of the house with our great back porch.  I can't wait to sit out there and feel the breeze--it's constant!

 And then the windows went in and the roof onto the porch was framed out.

Y'all should have seen these guys hoisting these tresses up onto the second floor by hand!  We hung out and watched them in awe for about 30 minutes!

This is our master bedroom.  Those vaulted ceilings are amazing!  Our queen bed will come out from the wall between these two windows.  Sitting area (?) to the right.

Our house is finally in the "toddler" stage here!!!  Really starting to take shape.
More to come...:)
SUSIE Q-TIP:  I try not to buy too many "theme-y" papers.  However, I couldn't resist some "sewing" paper from Carta Bella recently that a friend of mine was letting go of.  I found this piece with all the little scissors on it just right for this teacher card.  If you're thinking of making any teacher gifts, check your "sewing" styled supplies and see if there's anything y'all can use.
