I have a major crush on the super fun bitty bags, which are perfect for gift cards or small sweet treats, such as a Ghirardelli chocolate square. For today's project, I've combined the trendy gray chevron bitty bag with the elegance of seam binding (from the beautiful Truly, Madly, Deeply collection) and bling. The "Love Always" sentiment from No Matter What is stamped on a Tiny Sweet Scallop tag and the darling "no matter what" (love!) is just a sentiment flag adorned with some big ol' red bling. To help the doily pop, I added a dark gray Classy Label die underneath.

Before I go, it's true, this is my last post as a Verve Diva for a while. I recently decided to step down from most of my design teams. A huge thank-you to Julee for the wonderful privilege of being a Diva and to my fellow Divas for their friendship and inspiration. Goodbyes are hard, so I'll keep this one short and sweet.

Hugs,

Such beautiful work, Amy. I love those grey chevrons (thought it was a stamped tag at first view!) and the grey/white/red colour scheme is really striking.

I am sad to see you taking a step back from papercrafting for now, I've only recently discovered your blog and you've really inspired me, but priorities have to be reassessed from time to time, and I look forward to seeing what inspires you next!

Cialis is a widely recognised erectile dysfunction treatment that has become even more successful than Viagra.
Cialis generic contains tadalafil, which is an extremely effective and long-lasting impotent cure. Unlike other ed dysfunction treatments, [url=http://1cialis20mg.com/]cialis generic vs brand[/url]
starts working very quickly and has longer-lasting benefits. A single cialis dosage promotes healthy, comfortable and controllable erections for many hours.
Over 8 million men worldwide have used [url=http://1cialis20mg.com/]buy cialis 20mg online[/url]
. It’s been widely clinically tested, and is proven to have only minor – if any – side effects. For people suffering from erectile dysfunction, impotence is now a thing of the past with cialis.

Cialis ® 20mg film-coated tablets

The active substance is [url=http://1cialis20mg.com/]cialis price[/url]
. Each tablets of Cialis ® contains 20mg of tadalafil. The other ingredients are:
Tablet Core: lactose monohydrate, croscarmellose sodium, hydroxyproplycellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, sodium laurilsulfate, magnesium stearate.
Film-Coat: lactose monohydrate, hypromellose, triacetin, titanium dioxide (E171), iron oxide yellow (E172), talc.

WHAT CIALIS IS AND WHAT IS IT USED FOR:

Cialis ® comes as yellow film-coated tablets. They are in the shape of almonds and have "C 20" marked on one side. These tablets are available in blister packs containing 2, 4 or 8 tablets.
Cialis ® is a treatment for men with erectile dysfunction. This is when a man cannot get, or keep a hard, erect penis suitable for sexual activity.
Cialis ® belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors. Following sexual stimulation [url=http://1cialis20mg.com/]cialis generic vs brand[/url]
works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of blood into your penis. The result of this is improved erectile function. Cialis ® will not help you if you do not have erectile dysfunction. It is important to note that Cialis ® does not work if there is no sexual stimulation. You and your partner will need to engage in foreplay, just as you would if you were not taking a medicine for erectile dysfunction.
