Hello Friends, It’s time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday! We have NO topping this time around, so all you need to do is make a Birthday card and or project! You can never have to many Birthday cards lying around, so I hope you join me and my wonderful teammates! If these colors on my card look vaguely familiar to you, then I am here to tell you that your not crazy! I posted a card a about a week ago with these exact papers, I loved the results so much, that I couldn’t wait to try it again! I am pleased as punch once again with the results!! I think it all has to do with the great Verve stamps I used, along with the fun Viva La Verve sketch that was my starting point! The stamps are from the Verve- Poppy Birthday Set. I heat embossed my sentiment and used a white gel pen to add some dots and lines on my poppies and leaves. The vertical circle edge die is also from Verve and is in that 3 Set die– cut pack that I am always raving about. I have all things Verve linked up for you!! The decorative circle die is from Spellbinders and it is also something I adore using! Any other questions, please ask.
I wanted to take a minute and tell you my followers, my quiet behind the scene stalkers ( don’t worry I am one of them too), and my dear friends (old and new) that leave me such wonderful comments, how much I REALLY appreciate it! It warms my heart each and everyday and I am forever grateful! I just realized the other day, as I was looking through some stats, that I have reached 775 posts! I couldn’t believe it myself! I think I see a milestone giveaway coming up in the future!! Much love and appreciation, Nanc’
