Bless You

Happy Friday, friends!  It's time for the final Viva la Verve! sketch for October, and Laurie is this week's hostess with a sweet little CAS design.  I wanted to use the new Now & Then paper pad I picked up earlier this week and I thought it would be the perfect layout to use one of these gorgeous green butterflies I got on clearance a while back.

Some paper crimping, border punches and a half width of the wide striped ribbon from SU! were my other accents and the sentiment is a partial sentiment (I masked off the top half of the stamp, then stamped just the bless you portion) from the Wonderfully Made set.

That's all on the card front.  Remember, if you play along with all 5 of the October Viva la Verve! sketches and link them up in our forum, you'll be eligible for the $100 Verve gift certificate prize drawing.  And with a release coming a week from today, there's no better time to win a little Verve!  {grin}

Oh, and if you're in the Boise valley, be sure to head on out to Kuna on Saturday {10/27} from 10-3 for the Grand Opening of my friend's new scrapbook store, the Inspiration Boutique!  While you're there, sign up for a Verve card class taught by Janelle!  Pretty exciting!  I'm trying to line up a little time away from the twins to head out there and see my stamps in a store for the first time.

Well, I better skee-daddle.  I hope you have a fantastic start to your weekend!
