Feels Like Spring


I had some new stamps in my mailbox today from the new Verve release last Friday. I love this new Feel the Sun set. The flowers are just so pretty. It was 60 degrees here today, so I wanted to do something springy! The sketch and inspiration are from the VLVMAR2010 week one challenge on the Verve forum at SCS. The inspiration this month is kitchens. I was inspired by a shabby chic cottage kitchen.


Here is a close up of the flowers. I just bought a new toy, Smooch Spritz from AC Moore. It is so sparkly in real life the effect is unreal. I still don't think the up close photo captures it well, but it is truly amazing, I'm totally loving it.

Thanks for dropping by today. Looking forward to American Idol tonight, I thought the ladies stepped it up last night.

Card Recipe:
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Paper: Kraft, SU dsp, Pink Piroutte, PTI Vintage Cream
Embellishments: Copics, dimensionals, Smooch Spritz, nesties, cuttlebug embossing folder, SU ribbon and corner rounder

You did a gorgeous job with this new Verve set and see I resisted buying any of the new sets but did get a couple older ones...now you're making me second guess myself :)

So beautiful. I love the earth colors and the pearls in the middle of the flowers.
