Shine Brightly, Little Star

So I got my craft room all set back up yesterday and had to make a card right away! Something about unpacking and organizing all my crafty goodies really gets me happy and excited to make a card! I thought Sarah's sketch for this weeks' Viva la Verve! challenge was so fun so that is how I spent my morning:)

I had bought some new MME papers a couple weeks ago, and pulled out Quilting Bee for this card. I knew I wanted to do something with my Shining Star stamp set and the coordinating Starry die.

The flag is the 2nd largest die from the Banner Bundle and the banner stamp and "shine brightly" are from Remember This. Up under the ribbon are a couple flags from the Flag It die set.

Now that my room is all set up again and life has calmed down to a dull roar, I hope to be around much more often! Fun things on the horizon!! Thanks for stopping by today and PLEASE come play with us in the Verve Forums! You could win a $100 gift card for playing along each week!!

Viva la Verve! April Week 3--You make me SMILE!

Hi there. Remember me? I didn't think's been a while;)
Lots of stuff has been going on in my neck of the woods, which means my mojo ran off for awhile! Been taking classes, working, we sold our house, and are getting ready to move (on Thursday!) And wouldn't you know it, as soon as my scrapbook room is about to be packed away, my mojo comes whispering in my ear *go get inky!!* so I did. :)

It's been awhile since I played along with my Diva team mates in one of the VLV sketches, so I played along with Chrisyne's sketch for the week, Viva la Verve Week Three! 
The stamp is one of Verve's Plain Janes, called Smile PJ. I love the styling of this sentiment and it fits just so perfectly inside the Classy Label Die! 

You can also see a hint of one of the flags from the Flag It die set. I love that die set and feel like I use it on every card!  The papers are from Basic Grey's "Hey You" collection. I love the colors in this paper pad! 

Well that's all I have for now, but hopefully I'll be back before another month goes by:) Thanks for stopping by, I missed you!!
