Verve Stamps: Sometimes the Smallest Things....

Hi Everyone,

Have you ever had a kind of day where you woke up and were already behind? Yep, it was that kind of day that I woke up to yesterday - the whole day was a blur of running late to everything - I can't even tell you how nice ti was to go home, kick off my snow boots (sooo looking forward to spring!) and steal a few minutes in my craft corner :) 

And then I saw this gorgeous card that the fabu Ms. Amber Hight created for the Verve Diva Dare and I instantly said: "aaawwwwwww - how cute is that??!" and I wanted to try to make a Hight creation too!!! But, as I sat down to CASE Amber's gorgeous card, I just couldn't get mine to be "Amber-pretty" - so after wrestling with different layouts (phew! am I tired!) I settled on something simple. 

I LOVE how Amber created this card using the super cute combo of the the To The Moon stamp set along with the Smallest Things Plain Jane stamp set from Verve Stamps. I adored her little trio of animals and so I started off with a similar trio and created a little baby girl card with some sweet pinks and greens from the MME alphabet soup collection:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Alphabet Soup MME and PTI cardstock
Stamps: To the Moon stamp set, Smallest Things Plain Jane from Verve Stamps
Ink: RoseRed ink and Tuxedo Black ink from Memento 
Accessories: Heart punch from MS, ribbon from stash, liquid pearls, spellbinders nesties, corner chomper, twine, safety pin and dimensionals. 

I stamped the sentiment onto the Classy Label die from Verve stamps and then surrounded it with this super cute trio of fluffy adorableness :) I popped them up with some dimensionals and attached them to the nesties and then swirled a ribbon about and bowed it up above the trio (that sentence has so many grammatical errors!) I was feeling like it needed a little something and so added a little heart that I tired about the little Ellie's hand :)

I have to say that it was so much fun to make this card and I totally dedicate this card to Ms. Awesome Amber! Check out all the happenings going on over at the Verve Blog where this month the Diva Dare theme is Baby Love - and you have a chance to win some yummy Verve goodness!!!

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
Big hugs and hope you have a most excellent Thursday :)
Sankari :)
