Do not give up!!

Howdy stamping friends!! It's the start of a new week, and I can't wait!! I'm actually a Monday person. LOVE them!! Today, I have a special card to share with you. Not only do I LOVE this verse, but I made it while spending the day stamping with some very special friends: Pat and Nat. They live about 35 miles north of me, and we don't get to see each other often enough. But, this past weekend, they came down to stamp, eat, and watch my DD in her High School play.

We decided it would be fun to all use the same sketch and see where inspiration took us. Check out Pat's card HERE and HERE, and Nat's card HERE. Aren't they fabulous? They totally ROCKED this sketch!!



Well, for my card, I knew I wanted to use one of Verve's newest Plain Jane's Galations 6:9. I then chose papers from the paper pack Queen Bee by PinkPaislee. I added a Paper flower over some May Arts Silk Ribbon, some PTI buttons, and some sweet Sugar Picks by Jillibean Soup. I also added some rhinestone flourishes, a Martha Stewart punched border, and a bit of sewing along with some Pumice Stone ink distressing.

You might want to head on over to check out all the new images released by Verve too. Julee has really outdone herself yet again!!!! If you purchase the entire release by Oct. 28, you get 15% off. Now that's a steal of a deal!! Especially when you factor in all the images included in these sets.

That about sums everything up. Thank you so much for stopping by.
Happy Stamping!!
Tosh

Tosh, this card is brilliantly vintage and elegant at the same time! So many wonderful details like that flourish, seam binding and TDF paper flower! Where did you get that flower anyway? I'd love to know because my credit card is burning a hole in my wallet...may as well put it to good use! Thanks for being so inspiring!
