A VERVE FIRST
























Hello all, thanks for bearing with me and thanks for all the get well wishes!! Now, let's hope that that is IT for awhile! Huh?! I know we can't go ALL winter, but, come on!! A little while would be nice! Haha! Ok, I got my first Verve set and I love it!! I just think it is so simple and elegant!! I know it's just a Cross, but, the Cross is the meaning, right? And the Cross is AWESOME!!! Unfortunately, I had the chance to use it today. My dear friend lost her Nan, over the weekend. I had grown up with her and her Nan, so I felt really sad! We all understand that she is in a better place, no doubt!! However, it is still tough! So, I made these cards for her and her family. The grey one with the ribbon is for her Mother, the plain one is for her brother, and the butterfly one is for her. I embossed the Cross with Ranger, clear embossing powder, over Versafine Onyx. Then I sponged around the paper with Basic Grey and for the butterfly one I added Pumpkin Pie. Oh, and on the butterfly one, I also sponged the edges of the DP and on the DP. I wanted to tone it down a little, you know, to kind of go with the whole mood of the card and I like how it turned out! I also like how the square brads fit right in the center of the Crosses! Of course, gotta LOVE that Basic Grey Ambrosia paper. However, I was actually torn this time, I thought of using my swirl CB embossing folder. I thought it would match that Cross beautifully! Ahh, next time! I hope they like them! I wanted them to know that my family was thinking of them. I know they will get thru it and be a stronger family because of it. Ok, enough sad stuff; I hope you like my cards. Just wanted to share!
Now that I am feeling somewhat human, I want to know what all of you have been up to! I really need to get around and check on all of you!! Anything exciting going on? Come on, someone has to have something!! Tonight is WUW for MFT and tomorrow night is Unity's Hip Hop Thursday, what about you?? Let's see, SNSS is having their 1 yr anniversary and so is someone else; I can't think who! Darn it! Still have medicine head, I guess!!! If anyone can think of it, leave a comment!! I know there are a ton of new releases, all over the place!! You have to go visiting, for sure!! Well, I think I hear some little people jumping up and down, in their cribs! Best go check it out!! Hehe! Hopefully by tomorrow, I will be back into the swing of things!!! Hope you and your families are well!! Until next time......................ENJOY LIFE!!!
