WCMD, Verve Release, and SFYTT!

Well today is SURE to be a BUSY day in blog land! It's world card making day and everyone is getting cards made and sharing them with crafty friends all over! I love WCMD! Today I have a card to share using some NEW Verve stamps (being released TODAY!) and the October SFYTT!!! What an exciting day!

Here's the sketch from Jen for October, I LOVEEEE it!

Check out all those fun layers! Julee designed a few new Plain Janes to release on WCMD and this sketch fit them perfectly!
The sentiment is the new Much Love PJ and the little scrolly squares on the sides of the sentiment are the Square Medallion PJ! 
I dug into my new Simple Stories papers to create this card as well as some lovely lace ribbon from Hobby Lobby (I think?) I had a ton of fun with this sketch and hope you can play along! Visit Jen's Blog to see the sketch and the rest of the team-mates playing along this month!

Here's a card I made with Julee's sketch for today's festivities and a couple of the other new PJ's!

I used lots of fun dies on this card as well as the new "You're So Sweet" and "Loopy Medallion" PJ's!


Here's the sketch in case you've missed it!

Now it's time to send you on your way! You can find out all the prize details and see the full reveal of the new Plain Janes over on the Verve Blog today. 
Your next stop is the lovely Amy!!
