hi friend!!

Hope you're having a peaceful Sunday!! I have had a chance to do a little stamping this weekend. Here's a clean and graphic card for this weeks Colorthrowdown using Teresa's week 3 sketch from Verve!


Stamped a Verve banner die in bermuda bay and added dots with Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds using Versamark. Have been wanting to play with those arrows too... stamped images from Brighter Days onto certainly celery and berumuda bay in versamark and die cut with Verve's arrow die. Background is embossed with a TH folder. Sentiment is from Verve's Lean On Me. Popped several layers, stitched the circle, and added a couple buttons with twine bow. Here's the Verve link.... Julee has lots of new goodies from last months' release. 











Crossing my fingers this week will be a "quiet one" on the home front and work. Right now.... DH had surgery on his right shoulder but, the left one has a problem going on. DD had a little boat accident in July and hurt her ankle... it's on the "fritz" too and DD had a friend that stays with us who was kicked by a donkey yesterday and wondering about fractures!! Geesh.....

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!
