Good Morning Everyone!
Its Friday - and boy am I glad - this week has been wonderful but nothing like having a weekend for having fun with the whole family - and its Father's Day Weekend - are you guys doing something special for it? One thing that I want to do this weekend is to clean up my craftnook and have a day to just stamp away. Here is a card that I made for a dear friend of mine who is going to be performing in a theater production - I wanted to make a congratulatory sort of card - but all could think of was this awesome stamp set "Express Yourself" from Verve stamps, using the VLV sketch from (June Week 2):
Papers: Basic Grey and Bazzil
Stamps: Express Yourself by Verve Stamps
Inks: Tuxedo Black from Memento and Yellow Ochre Chalk ink
Accessories: liquid pearls (Adirondack Butterscotch), corner chomper, eyelets, cropadile, spellbinders
I adore adore adore this beautiful polka-dotted shoe image - wish i could walk in something like this - but I would probably trip and that would not look very graceful at all :) But I can still wish! My friend simply LOVES shoes and so I thought of her and can't wait to give it to her after the show! I love this sweet Verve stamp set and all of its sweet expressions :)
One more important thing - I don't know if you have seen this post by Jen about one of our Verve Divas: Susan - whose husband is undergoing treatment for lymphoma - she has been dealing with so much and her family and friends are reaching out to help her and her family through this difficult time as they are filled with bills that are adding up while her DH has been sick. Please read this post written by her sister on her blog - where she has added a donate button to help support their family. I love our blogging community - its so sweet to all come together to help each other out! Check out these three amazing companies: Verve, TCP and MFT who are all supporting the Liles family:
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Hope your friday is off to a great start and that your weekend is fabulous!
