Viva La Verve 1,2,3 Math Twist

Hi! I hope everyone had a great weekend and a fun Halloween if you celebrate it! On Friday my DD had a "Fall Bash" as she likes to call it. It was fun and went much faster than I expected. The kids only got to do about half the games I had planned, but I think they all had a good time. I was suprised that the biggest hit was bobbing for apples - I really didn't want them to do it because of the mess if done indoors and the cold if done outdoors (I am in Alaska!). Plus I thought it was kind of old fashioned and didn't think the kids would care about getting an apple, but my DD insisted and she was right! I have never seen so much laughing and excitement over getting an apple!

I did two cards today for the Viva La Verve November week 1 Sketch With a Twist. The twist was a 1-2-3 math twist! 1-Embellishment, 2- Cardstock colors, 3-stamps. My two cards are kind of variations of each other. When I finished the first one it didn't feel quite right to me , so I did the second. I think I am happier with the first one now, though!

The Details:
Stamp: Forever In Our Hearts - Verve
Paper: Upsy Daisy Designs, Baja Breeze, Night of Navy, PTI White
Copics: YG21,YG23,YG25 all w/ W0 over them, B000,B01 w/W0 and W1 over them
Misc: Circle Nestabilities, Heart Brads - JoAnn Scrap Essentials
