Hi friends!  Happy Tuesday!  I'm popping in today with my card for this week's Viva la Verve March Week 2 sketch.  With the kiddos being sick, I didn't get a chance to post this on Friday and it was a very special card for our St. Patrick's Day Diva, Maureen!

I paired a sentiment from the brand new Better Together set with the Lucky You set to make this Sham-rocking card.  Moe not only loves shamrocks, but doilies are totally her thing, so I had to use one for the circle on this sketch.  I made my five horizontal layers from varying shades of green cardstock, punching each one with a border punch and stamping the polka dot background strip above it.  The shamrocks from Lucky You are stamped in Wild Wasabi, cut with the coordinating Shamrock Die Set and then coated with glossy accents and sprinkled with glitter.  I accented things with a ton of sequins and teeny tiny bling and finished off with a seam binding bow.

Well, the kiddos are feeling better than last week, but they are DEFINITELY two... and letting everybody know about it!  Hyper... assertive... PICKY... determined.... always whining (in stereo)... and in a constant state of motion. I. am. so. exhausted.  {grin}  Hoping a nice trip to Target (which just happens to be near Dutch Bros. Coffee) today will keep them entertained and mama sane.

  4. Adorable card, Julee! Enjoy your coffee!

  5. Loving this all over again :) The green sequins are too fun! Have a great outing today - mommy sanity is a must! If they have local kids programs where they can blow some steam by running around etc. they are great. Used to put my son in them to burn him out a bit LOL! Enjoy a cuppa brew :)

  6. Julee, this is the perfect card for Moe! I love all of the gorgeous details especially all the sequins. So glad your little guys are feeling better!


Thanks so much for taking the time to brighten my day with a comment! I love hearing from you.
