Happy Friday! It's almost the weekend and I'm so glad! Fridays bring another Viva la Verve! sketch and this week's is the final sketch for July! Play along with all four of our July sketches for a chance to win our entire Anni-VERVE-sary release! I may be a little biased, but word on the street from the Divas is that this is their favorite release yet! So come play along! Deadline to enter is Thursday, July 28.
Laurie is our hostess with the mostess this week and she designed this darling sketch. I just love hearts and knew exactly what I wanted to do as soon as I saw her sketch. I got this new Splendid paper from Authentique this week and couldn't wait to make a plaid heart using the Tim Holtz die. The sentiment flag is cut out, folded over and stitched, then I tied the dream string (from Pizzazz Aplenty) through it, and wrapped around my label 16 and heart piece. The sentiment is from the new Small Phrases set and I accented with some liquid pearls and bling.
And there you have it. I've got a super busy day and a fabulous weekend lined up, so I'm just going to leave you with the enabler's list. Don't forget to check out the Diva Dare Challenge (which this card qualifies for) to pair just a sentiment with pretty paper. And there's still time to get your entries in for this week's Mojo Monday 200 celebration challenge, to be eligible for the prize drawings!

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
