Viva La New Year!

What a cool new twist...Viva La Verve - At Home with Verve! For 2010, Amber's going with a fun idea - and January's starting with Foyers and Entryways. I think if you check out her inspiration pics you can tell which one I used =)

I pulled out my Swiss Dots folder which is sorely underused, partly due to my lack of crafting lately and I felt inspired to use it thanks to Marisa, who's always got great things going on with hers. You can't see the white very well, but it's 'dotted' up, too. When I was finished, it still felt lacking, so I used my Sakura gel pen & colored on each of the dots. Verve's Circular Sayings stamp got a little inky, too! YAY! This is going to be my aunt's birthday card when I fly out to Saskatoon for my annual weekend trip at the end of the month.


  1. Terrific take on the inspiration piece!!

  2. You are so kind to mention me in this post :D I had to laugh because when I first started to read the post I was going to tell you how I could enable you to use Swiss Dots and then lone behold, there was my name LOL! You've made a fabulous kketch card here. Love the way you added a touch of white on the dots and the clean lines are wonderful. I'm leaning towards this colour combo myself and with the kids back in school today and two weeks of no stamping, can you guess what I'll be doing today LOL! Trusting you had a fabulous Christmas and cheers to a great 2010 :D

  3. Happy New Year! I love the clean look of this card...Great job on the challenge!

  4. Nice and Crisp! Great job. Happy New Year Tanis.
