AnniVERVEsary Spotlight Hops Day 3 & 4


So I totally goofed yesterday and didn't have my card up! I had some computer problems a couple days ago (was on the phone with Sony customer service for 1 hour and 45 minutes, UGH! BUT the good news is, he fixed my computer and it's running faster than ever:) So anyway, I got my days confused and didn't post my day 3 card. I'll go ahead and post it today!

Yesterday the featured set was Doodled Occasions, here's my card!

The card is 5.5x4.25, but I cut 3/4" off the length so the inside polka dots would show. I just LOVE the stamps in this set, all doodled flowers, bird cages, birthday cakes, and lots of fun sentiments:) I stamped the Bloom sentiment and then a doodled flower on each side. I used the new Pennant Trim die and added it to the bottom. I finished this one up with some ribbon (from Hobby Lobby) and buttons!

Now for TODAY'S featured set:) Today we're featuring a new full-sized set, Wonderfully Made, and a new Plain Jane, Praying for You.
I decided to work with Wonderfully Made for this card...

I started out using this week's Viva la Verve! sketch, but then my card went a different direction, lol!
I absolutely LOVE the font that Julee's used for this release, can you even stand it??? There are a few different sentiments in this set and a flower as well. The flower and leaves I've used here are from the new set peeked on Friday, Lean on Me. The leaves are from Dream Big, but the Dreamy Leaves die and the Pointed Flowers dies are from this release. I added some pearls ala my Schmoopy (Moe, she does this alot and I love it:)

There is TONS more inspiration out there waiting for you so I'm going to send you on your way to the amazing AMY!!!!!
