Relax ... Life Is Good



Here's another card that I made last week for Verve's latest release - seriously LOVING these new sets! This one uses a super cool, fun, hip set called Relax. I can almost hear the happy sound of waves tumbling toward my favorite sandy beach! The palm tree leaves are paper pieced and the trunks are colored with Copics. Patterned papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety 6x6 pad. My 6yo DD and I debated at length whether the white rope twine along the bottom was too much. I won't tell you who gave in to whom :)

Relax is available on its own, or as part of the Beach Party Collection. Buy the bundle and save! And for lots of gorgeous eye candy, check out Verve's Relax gallery.

Hope you had a fantastic weekend. Thanks for visiting!

Oooo, just the message I needed today. I am a nervous wreck; I have an IEP meeting for Julia at school today.

This card is like the essence of summer: palm trees, flowers, the sun - even the cardstock reminds of sunburn :-))

Fabulous! Makes me want to be on vacation at "ANY" sunny location. This winter was so long... now just trying to get through this late frosty Spring weather.
Love the colors and the layout. Love everything you do. Wish you lived close to me I think I could learn things from you.

The rope accent is the perfect finishing touch, in my opinion! I love this set and will be buying it for certain.
