Hello Monday!

Sorry I've been kind of quiet for the past few days. I didn't get much stamping done this weekend, or even get on the computer to upload the final 3 cards I did for the Verve new release Party/Challenges to my blog. I did finish all 5 by the Friday deadline, though - Woo Hoo! So it's a few days late, but here they are!

The first one was for the challenge to use Sparkle! I made the sparkly blue paper by covering a piece of Bashful Blue with Versamark ink and then embossing it with Iridescent Ice Embossing powder. The stamp is from Verve's Ornamental Christmas set.

This one was for the challenge to use Distressing! Again, I used the Ornamental Christmas stamp set and some yummy Cosmo Cricket paper that I have had for awhile.

And this last one was for a color challenge - Pumpkin Pie, Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. I used the Verve stamp Whimsy Tree for the main image and did a little watercoloring with re-inkers. The sentiment from Heartfelt Phrases and the background leaf is from Forever in Our Hearts (all Verve).

Thanks for stopping by!
