I just love how this card turned out. It's so fresh and clean yet pretty! :) I saw the Viva la Verve sketch from last Friday and new I wanted to play. I haven't been able to participate in these for quite some time because of how busy I have been so it was a lot of fun to join back in on the fun! I doubt I will be able to get them all complete before the end of April but I can at least say I got one done! Haha! Anyway, I made this card with either my mom or Nick's mom in mind (obviously). I was very distracted while making it (Nick and I were watching a Skulls) but it really turned out great! I also discovered that this month's Verve Project Parade is about celebrating the women in our lives and I have been in a Springy mood so it hit the spot! For the card I pulled out my brand new, absolutely fabulous stamp set from Verve called "Because of You" and paired it with my new paper from My Mind's Eye. I picked up this 8x8 pack of paper as well as another My Mind's Eye pack at Hobby Lobby last week when it was 50% off and I can't get over how gorgeous it is! You can't tell in the picture but it is very glittery, yet elegant. To add to the glitter I embossed my image with irridescent embossing powder and added some rhinestones around the circle. I also embossed the word mother at the bottom of the card.
Well, that's it for me tonight. We had supper with our dear friends Leanne and Ryan tonight and Leanne cooked the most delicious meal! Nick actually got some on his shirt and he was licking it! Haha! I know, that's gross, but it was SO funny! Anyway, I have a very busy week a head of us so I had better get some honey time in. Have a wonderful evening!
