VLVJAN2011 Week #4

Sankari has a fabulous VLV sketch for week 4 of this month! Check it out HERE! I just had to play along!! Check out how you can play along too. There's prizes to be won people!! Verve prizes!! How cool is that!!!

Here's my take on her sketch:

I paper pieced the sweet little chubby bear from Verve's To the Moon set, and popped him up against a dp bg. (all the dp is MME) This set has a huge variety of sentiments, and I chose "sweet little baby". I also paper pieced the kite. I saw recently how a stamper added a ton of buttons on a strip below the image, and I would love to give credit for the inspiration, but I can't for the life of me remember which blog I saw it on. :( But I will say, all of you stampers are a continual inspiration. That's why I adore this part of the crafting world so much. It's filled with so many ideas with color, shapes, embellishments, layouts, styles...I could go on and on. So thank you for sharing your gifts, because I learn so much.

eta: I found the card that inspired me with the buttons. It was made by the uber talented Debbie Carriere. You can see it on her blog HERE. Isn't it just the most charming!?!?!?!?

That's it from me today. The rest of the card is pretty straight forward. I'll just add the supply list at the bottom of this post. Now, head on over to the VLV forum over on Splitcoaststampers to see what everyone is up to this month.

Happy Stamping my friends!! And have a super weekend!!
Tosh

Oh this is so awesome. I love love love those papers and the row of buttons is too cute. I saw that somewhere else, too, and can't remember where either. It's really neat, though. Great card!

This is so gorgeous. I must get that Spellbinder die. I love it every time I see it. I also love all the buttons. I think I'm going to give that a go. Also, thanks again for all your wonderful words of encouragement. I can't tell you how much they have helped me. I continue to go back to what you said about your mom being at the feet of the Lord. Just know that you have helped me more than you know and I appreciate you reaching out to me. Big, Giant, Inky Hugs!

BTW, couldn't you have simpler word verification???

sajjqnfi what is that? most at least have some form of a word that I try to steal for Scrabble. Great points if it actually counted *wink*
