Viva la Verve! August Week 5--Sip and Savor

Hey there! I have a quick card to share with this weeks VLV sketch challenge. Did you know it's the LAST week of the month? That means you need to get all your sketch cards submitted by Thursday at midnight in order to be enterered into the random drawing, winning you the ENTIRE next months Verve release! Just ask any of the previous winners if it's worth it;)

This week, Teresa is our hostess and has come up with a really fun sketch, so pull out your new Tag Dies and play along with us...

Here's my card using quite a few of the new goodies just released last week!

I used some of my brand new MME Lost and Found papers on this card, I just love the chocolatey richness of this collection!
You'll notice that my card has a few differences from the sketch, but I tried to remain as true to it as my muse would allow;) The stamps are all from Sip and Savor, the companion set to Better with You.
I used the Rounded Scalloped Frame die for the two rectangle panels and the largest tag from the Tiny Sweet Scallop Tags collection. I tied a multi-loop bow using SU!'s new seam binding (see my bow tying tutorials to the left!) and added a button. The button and twine are from PTI.

The last thing I added was the rhinestone flourish, from Recollections. I love all the recollections embellishments and when I was back in the states last month, I kinda went crazy in Michaels, lol!

Head on over to the Verve Forums for details on how to play along!

Oh, and guess what I found out? My husband is coming home two weeks early! He's been gone since MARCH and it feels like it's been 5 years since I've seen him:) He'll be home in a little under two weeks:) I'm simply beside myself with excitement! The time is drawing near to our impending move to Phoenix, we can hardly stand the wait. We've been pre-approved for a home loan and are busy scouring the internet for amazing homes. I made him promise me a house with my very own pool so I'm quite excited;) To have a pool in my own backyard will make the pain of leaving the ocean much easier to handle;) Thanks for stopping by!
