Be Okay

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  It's time for another Viva la Verve! sketch and this week's hostess is Laurie Schmidlin.  And as a special surprise, I'm featuring the brand new Be Okay Plain Jane that released this morning.  I was saving this stamp for our next release, but with the babies due in only 4 more weeks, I have no idea when the next release will be, so decided to just release this stamp by itself.  It's a phrase that has been near and dear to Mark and I throughout this pregnancy, and I'm sure we'll continue to say it to each other on a daily basis after the twins are born....  everything is going to be okay.


For my card, I went with a favorite springtime color combo of mine... pink and green.  The papers are from the Victoria Gardens collection from Echo Park and the butterflies are from Verve's Twitterpated set.  I added some ribbons, liquid pearls and some rhinestone bling along the sides to dress things up, but still stayed pretty true to Laurie's sketch, other than moving the bow a bit.

I hope you'll get a chance to play along with Viva la Verve this month.  We post a new sketch each Friday and if you participate in all 4 of the February sketches, you'll be entered in our drawing for a $100 gift certificate to Verve!  All the challenge details can be found in our Viva la Verve forum on SCS.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend, and be sure to check out the new Be Okay plain jane.  And while you're there, don't miss the Wishing for Spring SALE we have going on, with many of our favorite springtime sets and dies 15% off through March 4!

  11. The card is gorgeous but here's my main comments.
    As the mother of 18 year old boys (who are the youngest of 4) I can say it sounds like you have the right attitude. Listen to the advice that agrees with your style and say thanks for the rest. Have a list of chores when others ask what can they do to help. SLEEP any time the boys do. Nurse them at the same time. It takes a little practice but will save you time. (I did for 22 mos and I'm one of those lactation consultants your friend talked about, and I agree with her, it's not s'posed to hurt but it may and the first 2 wks are the hardest) Have fun and hold them often. They years will disappear before you know it. Congrats and have fun!
