Most Days

Hi friends!  It's Friday and time for another Viva la Verve challenge.  This week's sketch is from the lovely Anya, and I'm pretty excited about it, because I love square cards and I adore little nests of thread/twine.

I'm a bit later posting than usual.  We're all still sick at my house and the boys didn't fall asleep until almost midnight last night, meaning there was no crafty time.  So I woke up early and headed into my neglected studio.

I pulled out the new Chocolate set and coordinating Chocolate Word Die,, stamping the milkshake image in Early Espresso and then coloring with Copic markers.  I stamped the sentiment in strawberry slush, then also cut a flag from the Flag It Die Set from strawberry slush and stamped repeatedly with the small chocolate word stamp from the set.  Then I went looking for paper.  Loved the look of this mint paper and let out a little squee when I saw that the tiny text on it spells the days of the week... a perfect match for my sentiment!

Finished with the Chocolate Word Die, and a bow using the Polka Dot Basics Ribbon Collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  This was the first morning in several weeks I didn't wake up feeling like I'd been run over by a MACK truck, so I think I'm on the mend.

If you're feeling like a little shopping this weekend, I finally refreshed the website this week and our April sale is 20% off all stamps AND dies!  Yay!  The past 7 weeks of sickness has really taken a hit on my momentum with Verve.  Unfortunately the sweet little bunnies and egg stamps that were almost ready to be sent to manufacturing are now just early for next year.  I did get a chance to do a little stamp designing yesterday and am hoping to finish up something new for Verve very soon!
