Viva La Verve!

Happy Sunday!

Today I thought I would share a card that I made for Viva la Verve over on splitcoaststampers. This is a new weekly sketch challenge. Below is this weeks sketch. There is also a chance of winning verve stamps every month.

Below is the card I created. I really liked the colors I used for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration challenge so I thought I'd use them again. I'm also loving the SU! A Rose is a Rose set. I struggled a bit of what hardware to use but decided on the 3 little brads. I enjoyed this sketch and found it was a challenge and got me thinking!!  

Cardstock: Rose Red & Whisper White (All SU!)
Designer Series Paper: Pink Pirouette (SU!)
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Olive Green, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Queen & Co. Brads, Pop Dots

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check out the challenge using the link above.

New Years Resolutions & a card!

Well, a New Year & so I guess it's time to list those New Years Resolutions!! I wonder how many I will keep throughout the year! 

1. My top priority is to loose weight! (isn't this one on every girls list?!)
2. Be more dedicated to my blog!
3. Enter more challenge's (within the card & scrap blogging world)
4. Try to use more of my stash before I buy more!!! (easier said than done!!)
5. Get my work published in a magazine
6. Be focused on my degree & improve my grades! 
7. Spend more time with family & friends and cherish every moment

Thats about all I can think of right now but I won't bore you with more!!

Now to a card share... this is a card I made a while back I don't think I've ever shared it on my blog. 

Card Stock: White & Black 
Stamps: Fairy (Personal Impressions) HA Fantastic Flourishes 
Ink: Black StazOn
Accessories: Wire Clip, Red Organza Ribbon, Glitter Glue

Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you all may 2009 be all that you want it to be. Well, my New Year was a working one! It kept going but steady and not too busy. I finished my nights yesterday and now feel back to the land of the awake people!! It always takes me a while to bring myself back round after working night shifts! 

Hope to share some creative goodness later today.  Checkout Our Creative Corner for this weeks challenge and also some candy from the previous post!
