Verve Release Party

Tonight is the big night! In the Verve forum on SCS they are having a release party for their September sets. I can't wait to see what is released. They have has some sneak peaks this week and the new sets look awesome. Guess I'll be getting out the credit card tonight! They have a set of five challenges for release week. I made this card for the first challenge (SEP09A). It was Julee's sketch challenge.

Unfortunately I needed a sympathy card this week. My SIL had to put her dog Zeus to sleep. It is very heartbreaking, he was so much more than a dog. He truely was a family member. Cal considered Zeus one of his cousins. Our heart goes out to them this week. I don't send many animal sympathy cards, but thought this called for a card, to let them know we are thinking of them. I love the meaning of this sentiment, too. How true it is that our memories can bring us comfort and peace.

Thanks for stopping by tonight. Don't forget to check out the Verve forum for the release party details. They also always have lots of great giveaways, fantastic samples and fun chatter at these parties!
