A Viva la Verve Special Delivery

Well, this week has been an eventful weather week for us here in north Texas.  Yesterday and today were ice days and the kids have been out of school.  Tomorrow (Wednesday) is predicted to have about 4 inches of snow, but by the time the afternoon rolls around, it should all be melting off.  Then this weekend, they are forecasting another round of the same.  What I thought would make for some fun crafty days, I haven't gotten to be crafty at all!  They had me hunkering down with them in our pj's watching movies, making nachos and just hanging out.  It's been fun, and I am totally for it when they want to spend time with me.  Those days are going to end too quickly and I've got to take it when I can get it!

I am managing to write up this blog post while Eric keeps them busy with a game of Monopoly.  I made this card over the weekend before the kids got their "ice-cation" and after working at The Little Blue House booth at the Scrapbook Expo (FUN FUN FUN!).  It's the latest VIVA LA VERVE sketch using some of my favorite "oldies" from VERVE.  

One of my favorite stamping friends, Kelli Hull has just welcomed her new granddaughter (she's adorable!) into the world and I had her and her sweet family in mind when I made this card.  I used the CHICKS RULE stamp set for the chick and combined it with the sentiment from the FRAMED LILIES set stamped onto the MINI BOOKPLATE LABEL die cut for a perfect baby card.  The heart from the HEART QUARTET is a sweet accent stamped with the flowers from the Chicks Rule set and then just hot glued to the bakers twine so that it looks like I threaded the button through it.  It was fun getting my Copics out again after not using them for a while!  Can we say, "INK REFILLS"!?!?!  Some of them need some attention!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  Surely by now, y'all have heard about Wink of Stella brush pens.  They are a fabulous liquid glittery pen with a brush tip.  I used the "clear" on this card to make the label, flower and heart super sparkly.  You NEED these pens in every color.
