A cheerful friend . . .

The Viva la Verve sketch challenge is happening. I am totally smitten with Verve's stamps. My goal is to complete all 4 sketches for the month to be eligible to win the next month's entire release. The best part is you have all month to complete the sketches!!!

The week one sketch is a long, skinny card format. My card is 6 1/4 x 3 1/2. I enjoyed making a different size. The sentiment is from the Verve set Text Objects.

The amount of paper leftover is enough to create a 4 x 4 1/4 card and stamping in another color of ink gives such a different feeling.

I know I "enabled" a couple of you during Verve's recent sale so come play along!!! ~Rhonda


  1. Rhonda, great cards! Love the raised sentiment on the first and the beautiful simplicity of the second. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you win the release!

  2. Gracious these are FABULOUS!!! I love al the paper in the first one ..... they are both just my style!!!

  3. Rhonda, what awesome designs! Love how you combined the mat stack with those gorgeous papers :)

  4. Great job on both of them. I especially like the PP on the second one. I hope you win!

  5. Both of these are so lovely! Love the sentiment and the great patterned papers. I am really enjoying my Verve stamps too. I made another card today so need to get it posted. Good luck with the contest!

  6. Awesome cards Rhonda! I love how you used the leftover piece to create the notecard. Perfect!

  7. Great cards! I love that paper & what a great way to use your scraps :) TFS

  8. Really like the long shaped card! Pretty pattern papers on it. Love Verve and should take a look at their shop soon.

  9. Both are fantastic! Love what you did with the Oliver papers and the VLV sketch on the first one! And you're right, the ink color makes the sentiment look so different! Great job with both!

  10. Mmmmmm - love your paper mix here! I was just looking at the sketch challenge for this month and am soooo tempted! Still waiting for my goodies to arrive - hopefully any day now :0)!

  11. Love these two different looks at the same sentiment. Beautiful cards!


I love your feedback!! Thanks for stopping by.
