Viva la Verve!

Good morning friends! How is the new year treating you so far? It's treating me just fine because in *SEVEN* days my Billy will be home!!!!!!!! ACK! So much to do in so little time:)

Today is the first day of a new challenge in the Verve forums! We're calling it Viva la Verve! Susan Liles came up with that name, isn't it PERFECT? It just ROLLS off the tongue:)
This weeks challenge is a sketch with a {twist} of hardware! That means that along with the sketch, your card must have hardware on it as well! Here is the sketch:
And here is my sample:
The stamp set I used is called Abundant Blessings by Verve. This set has some of the most beautiful images! I love it:) Click {HERE} to see it in the store!
See {THIS} thread in the Verve forum for details on what and how you can win by joining in this fun weekly challenge with us!
Have a great day, Viva la Verve!

Oooh, pretty! Better use all those stamps now because I have a feeling you won't wanna stamp much once Billy gets home, hehehe! Can I borrow your beer mug stamps pretty please? I'll be your best friend! :D
