CR84FN68-glad tidings!!

Good Sunday morning- hope yours is a relaxing one and if you celebrated Thanksgiving this past week...hope it was filled with good times and lots of good food!! Today were kicking off some new colors at the CR84FN color challenge-- burgandy, gray, and cream. Gorgeous!!


I'm also working on getting my Verve sketch challenges done this month. 

This is the week 3 sketch by Maureen. The background and one of the die cut trees was embossed with a Victoria folder and the other tree was stamped with Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds (color on color). It's kind of hard to see but, the cream panel was stamped with versamark using a leafy sprig from Verve's New Mercies. Sentiment from Verve's Glad Tidings using a MFT flag STAX {love these!- not sure what I would do without them}tag. Added a button and ribbon to finish.
  
Can't wait to see what you create with these colors!! Check out the CR84FN blog for all the details and to see fabulous inspiration from the design team!!

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