Verve Week 4

Hey's your week going? Not long and the weekend will be here....yaaaaay:-)

I'm back to share my card for the latest Verve Sketch Challenge for week 4. Here's the sketch we had to follow....

....and we had to combine it with something that's inspiring us at the moment. Well here in the beautiful land Down Under the beauty of spring is inspiring me at the moment with gorgeous flowers blooming all around so I chose this beautiful flower focus my attention on.


The reds and yellows encouraged me to use my October Afternoon papers.....

and the sweet little There She Goes set called Polka Dot Blooms. This is the other thank you card DH needed. The little cream paper lace under the green grass.....came all the way from Japan. Not saying that you probably can't get it from over here somewhere too but DH chose me 4 different types when he was there....nice that he had me and my crafting needs in mind :-))


Alrighty, I'm heading over to SCS Verve Challenges to link this that I'm back on Broadband ...wooohooo:-)))) Thanks to an email from Therese I was prompted to give Telstra another ring. I didn't have any luck with them last week but tonight the lovely lady on the other end of the phone told me that they now do 50gig/month for the same price we are paying for 25 gig. Did I want that she said? DID I EVER!!! You little ripper!! Now we shouldn't run out ever again:-) (Yeh right!) But ssshhhhhh don't tell the kids.....or they'll be You Tubing til the cows come home and chew through it I'm sure. And to think that not long ago we got by on just a measly 12 gig.....oh my....what a joke that is now lol.

Okay enough of my blabbering...thanks for popping in....see you soon!


Set of Thank You Cards

Hey's your Hump Day going?

Now I'm still on dial up...for another week....bllaaaahhhh!!....but thought I'd show you the thank you cards I made for DH to send back to Japan following his recent trip there.

I modelled these cards on one by Niki Estes (sorry I'm not linking but it's the dial up....I'll go bonkers waiting!)....I've used the beautiful Big and Bold Wishes Set from PTI.

Here goes...this could take a while LOL....for me that is (*eye roll*)...

Thank You Set of Cards 
Well it only took 10 minutes! here's a couple more;-))...

Thank You Real Red and Teal 
Thank You Card and matching Envelope 
Yes I made matching envelopes to go with them. Once I had these finished DH mentioned he needed just one more!

So today I made that 'one more' but it's not like these....totally different....using the latest Verve Sketch so I'll be back to show that soon.

Thanks for visiting...bye for now....
