Bellas In The Mail - and My Final VLVJUL Card!

I'm so pleased - this is the first time I've actually completed all of the Viva La Verve sketch with a twist challenges for a month - and there was five of them in July! I just adore the sketches that Amber comes up with and the twists make it just a little more challenging. LOVE 'EM!

Stamps: Elegant Cheer
Paper: Shimmery White, Blue Bayou, Blue Bayou DSP, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Ink: Blue Bayou
Accessories: Glimmer Mist, D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug Folder, Silver Brads, Opaline Half Pearls, Scallop Punch

Possibly more importantly (for Susie at least), I managed to get my Bellas all EZ-mounted and stamped for our swap. I included some of my Whipper Snapper, Penny Black, PaperworksCo and my fave little House Mouse image, too. I was hoping she could pass along some for Woody, her son, to color, too, since he's got his promarkers! And after a quick visit to the post office, they're official postal.

This was my basement floor as of 9:30 this morning:

And now the countdown begins until they arrive in the UK and her images arrive here in Edmonton. Ugh. I hate waiting! Good thing I'm on holidays and have a bunch of challenges & sketches to catch up on from the DTGD session on the weekend =)


  1. This is so pretty! I love all the shimmer and shine!

  2. So simple and elegant! I love it! Blue Bayou was one of my favorite in colors.

  3. This card is gorgeous!! You have to save it until MY birthday...I love it!!
    I bet Susie will be excited to see all the images you sent.

  4. I like the monochromatic color scheme and that cool layout. Looks like your were stamping up a storm with all your images. What a luck recipient.
