VLV Jan Week One (three more to go!)

Well this card should be arriving at it's recipient's home any day now (darn slow Canada Post and with this crazy amount of snow, it's almost expected that everything will be slower than a snail's pace).

I brought out my Happy Hello set and inked up the flower from Amazing Wishes and used the Viva La Verve January Week 1 sketch to pull together a card for a special friend who never ceases to amaze me with her Divalicious creations and amazing sense of style. She's truly an inspiration, both personally and creatively.

On a personal note, I'm about done with this stinking snow - another 5cm anticipated today and because it's so darn fluffy, every time I shovel it onto a pile, it creates a mini-landslide and just makes more of a mess it seems. ARGH! That, combined with my Patriot loss (Yay for Andrea, whose Jets won) made for a crummy Sunday. However in an attempt at positivity, I'm going to share my Friday discovery. I opened some mail on Friday I shouldn't have (not that I knew at the time), but I discovered my birthday gift - and for as frustrated as I was with MrP for not even wanting to discuss a road bike for me in December, I think I can stop complaining - pretty sure he bought me the one I was drooling over! We've agreed for me to 'forget' what I think I saw....but I have a feeling this summer's going to be wonderful! Now if only it would stop snowing.

Stamps: Verve Happy Hello, Amazing Wishes
Paper: Ginger Blossom DP, Cameo Coral, River Rock, Ruby Red, Groovy Guava
Ink: Ruby Red, Groovy Guava

  1. LOVE this! That flower matches the paper to perfection and you really rocked the sketch! Really great card all around. Sorry the Pats lost. Even my hubby was wanting a win for them :(

  2. This is absolutely fabulous, Tanis!! Love the DPs you used and well done with that layout! Hoping this made it over the mountains okay ;)

    So sorry to hear you have had still more snow :( Though I must say I would much rather shovel dry snow that the 8 inches of very wet snow we got last week! That was quite the work out!!!

    When is your b-day??!! Had no clue you were a January b-day or is it Feb? Let me know as I'd love to send you some b-day love :) Make sure you post a picture of your pressie for us to oooh and aaaah and celebrate with you!

  3. Oh my word - this is seriously FABULOUS!!! I love the colors, combinations of papers and stamps and those sweet little silver pearly things :) Just so BEAU-TI-FUL!!! Great take on the sketch!
    I am sorry for you and the Pats :( But so happy for the Jets - YAY!!!! sorry to hear about all the snow too!

  4. well, guess what came in the mail today? I just LOVE it, Tanny, thank you so are so sweet always...and encouraging :) You amaze ME!! It is in a place of honour in the living room and has made me smile all evening....I love that you used VERVE on it too :) Can't wait to see the birthday present :) hugs to you :) and thanks again so much :)
