Psalm 3:3



Lots to share today, so I'll get right to it. Verve's next release is this Friday, June 25! As usual, we're having some release week challenges for a chance to win Verve gift certificates and, for one lucky winner, the full release! Challenge details are posted HERE in the Verve Forum on SCS. Better get crackin' - the deadline is Friday. Winners will be announced at the Release Party, which takes place from 9-11 EST, also in the Verve Forum. New set peeks begin on the Verve Stamps blog tomorrow.

After you've cranked out release week challenge cards, you might want to try this month's Viva La Verve challenges also. Amber's got some beautiful sketches and some amazing kids room phtoos to use for inspiration. I've played along with two of this month's VLV sketches. My favorite one is shown above.

I used this sketch from the Week 4 Challenge:



and this inspiration photo:



My first thought when seeing the inspiration picture was how feminine and romantic, which reminded me of these beautiful Girls Paperie papers that I purchased recently. I added some ruffled seam binding, some Prima trim, and pretty scallops to help with the soft, romantic look and feel. (Speaking of ruffled seam binding, how could it not work its way onto my card after seeing this amazing card by Sarah Martina.) The Scripture stamp, Psalm 3:3, is a new Plain Jane coming Friday!

Next is a card I made a couple of weeks ago:



using the Week 2 sketch...



and this inspiration photo...



This card gave me fits, and I never did get to a place where I'm happy with it. Happens sometimes, right? One thing I do love about it is the sentiment, which is from Verve's One Person.

Remember, complete all of any given month's Viva La Verve sketches, and you'll be entered into a drawing to win the entire next release. VLV details are posted with each sketch thread. A little roomier deadline for the June VLV's -- midnight, July 3.

Thanks so much for visiting!
