Luxe Thanks

Happy Friday!  This week has just flown by!  Thanks everyone for your sweet comments on our New Release Hops!  If you haven't had a chance to comment on everything yet, you can find the master hop lists for all three days by clicking {HERE}.  The deadline for comments to be entered in our drawings is tonight {1/7/11} at 6PM Mountain.  I hope you'll find a little time to drop by for our ReLeAsE pArTy tonight,which starts at 7PM Mountain.  The design team gallery is overflowing with fabulous samples from the Divas, and I know they have some previews to show you tonight that you haven't seen yet!  And speaking of previews, how about another from me???


Since today is Friday, that means there's a new sketch over in our Viva la Verve! forum.  This week's sketch is from Charmaine and is just so much fun!  I took a few liberties, but you can still see the inspiration is there.  I bought this gorgeous Prima butterfly a while ago because it was so lovely and I planned on making a project for Christmas with it, but Christmas has come and gone and I couldn't wait another year to use it, so out of the package it flew!

I used the new Sweet Treats set for the label and sentiment.  The label is embossed with Early Espresso Craft ink on Creamy Caramel and then aged with some Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink, after cutting out with Verve's new Classy Label Die.  The sentiment was embossed in gold on some Lost & Found paper and cut with the new Embossed Oval Die. The papers are all from that gorgeous Lost & Found collection by My Mind's Eye and I distressed the edges and inked them up, embossing the main red panel with the damask texture fade from Tim Holtz.  I added a little ruffled cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon under a panel cut with the Apron border die from TCP, then finished off with a few dark gold pearls.

Okay, that's all from me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope to chat with you tonight!  :)
