Happy Birthday

Hi there! How are things?

I apologize for the lack of regular posts, but I have been staying busy with so many things going on around here. In a few short weeks we are going to start work on two of our larger room redos in the house - removing all the drywall, replacing the insulation, and then rebuilding it all. It is going to be huge, but I am really excited about it. The hard part is going to be finding a place to move all that furniture when the work starts. I don't seem to find those few minutes to squeeze in card making as much as I used to.

Today, though, I do have something I made for this week's Viva la Verve challenge. This week's sketch and inspiration photo were from Maureen Plut.

I switched it up a bit, making my card square, but here's what I came up with.

I used little bits from the Be Blessed, Wonderful Marvelous, and Peaceful Medallions sets. I really love the most recent releases from Verve - they have such great images and sentiments and I love how well everything goes together!

There is still some more time to join in with the sketch challenge fun, I hope you will!

Have a great day!
