Viva la Verve--April Week 4

Hello! Long time no blog, huh? It's been a mixture of laziness, and nothing to show you, lol! I actually meant to have this post up YESTERDAY, but again...that laziness thing...

This week, Shannan is our fabby-dabby hostess and just LOOK at this amazing sketch!


Holy fabulousness, right? I love the sun rays she created, but couldn't replicate them. I hear she has a toot on her blog, so I may have to check it out and give this one another try;) For the time being, I just used a rectangle in place of the sun rays...


Don't be mad, I know alot of you haven't even seen much spring yet, and already I'm making Thanksgiving cards, lol! It's just that I found this fun paper in my stash and wanted to use it! One of the pieces had strips on it and I decided to use this one that says "Happy Thanksgiving"! The pumpkins are from Tall Oaks, a favorite Fall set! Just look at those fun, whimsical pumpkins, makes me think of Cinderella's carriage! I added some gold ice Stickles to the vines, it looks pretty cool IRL! those buttons aren't a part of the sketch, but I sort of HAVE to use buttons, it's a compulsion I don't feel like letting go;)

Come play along with us in the Verve Forums for your chance to win! Details and chatting can be found HERE! Have a lovely weekend, my friends!

LOL, you said fabby-dabby! I love it! What a fun way to get around the sunbursts!! LOL There have been many creative ways and I'm learning lots! Those little pumpkins are too adorable :) Yay, it's Easter all over the place...I'm "almost" done with all the chocolate everywhere!

I, for one, love your Thanksgiving card and I could go for giving spring and summer a miss if it means the spiders will get the heck out of my house again ;) Lovely card as always, and I miss you as always!
