Verve Week 1

Today's card is for Verve's July week 1 sketch with a twist. What a fun layout don't you think?! The twist was to distress!! Usually I only distress for masculine cards, I think it is the perfect element for those types but as I was thinking about what image to use, I knew it would be fun for this one! I love all of the images from Verve's Because of You set and thought this little one would be perfect for the little panel! I ink the stems and grass in Papertrey's Avocado and the little buds in Papertrey's Summer Sunrise. I distressed all the panels except for the base card. Couldn't help but use my Scor Bug on the Avocado panel, I love that little tool!!!
I was visiting Debbie's blog one day and she was talking about the Bow Easy, she had a link to Sharon's blog which led to a great video tutorial by Jerri on how to use it! It dawned on me that I had seen the Bow Easy at my lss so while I was out running errands the other day I stopped in there and sure enough they had it! Now sometimes I can make bows but lately I have been bow challenged but not anymore!! Except now I need to work on cutting my tails, geez!!! It's always something isn't it?
Some exciting news for me!! My friend Christina, or as most know her as Sunshine has asked me to be on her design team!!! Her and her hubs have a great new line of digital stamps!!! Some of you may have already seen (and got yourself!) Angus Argus, they are coming out with new digital stamps every Saturday!! I will be back late Saturday afternoon (if not before, lol!!) with the newest image!!
