Friends Always

Happy Monday!  It's the start of a super busy week for me and I'm totally energized! Since it's the first Monday of the month, that means it's CONTEST time over at Mojo Monday!  Play along with this week's sketch for a chance at some new Verve!  We'll have up to six winners this week, so don't be shy!  :)



My card for Mojo159 uses the adorable Teeny Trees set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I've had so much fun with this set and I'm warning you right now, you're going to be seeing a lot more of this color combo {Peach Parfait, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Ivory} this week, because I'm kind of crazy about it!  I have all sorts of new patterned paper, but every time I sit down to stamp I keep reaching for these colors instead.  Must be me wanting to escape the unseasonably warm weather we've been having.  I'm so ready for fall!

There's nothing too complicated here, just some border punching, some shabby wrinkled ruffled ribbon and a whole lot of really fun peach pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty.  Oh, and I scored a little frame on the ivory card base with my Scor-pal.

Okay, that's all on the card front today.  If you haven't seen them already, be sure to pop over to the Verve Blog to see the 5 sketch challenges we're currently running leading up to our release this Friday!  There's lots of new Verve up for grabs!  And our official sneak peeks start on Wednesday.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a fantastic Monday!

  12. Wow Julee, this card is just gorgeous. I really love the colour combo you have been using for a few of your cards, it is so earthy, definitely speaks of autumn/fall colours. The layout is so perfect and that ribbon is to die for.
