The Desires of Your Heart

All this week, Verve is celebrating their 1-year anniVERVEsary with, get this, 12 days of sketches over at the Verve forum on SCS! Everyone that participates in each of the 12 sketches will be entered to win a humongous prize....the ENTIRE August stamp release! Trust me, that is NOT a typo! What that really means is that the winner will the receive 6 stamp sets and 5 Plain Janes that Verve is releasing in August! Here are more details! What a prize! Woo-hoo!

Here is my take on sketch #2. These are not my typical colors (you know me, I gravitate toward the hot end of the color spectrum), but I really love how it turned out, colors and all:)! I tweaked a few of the sketch details a tiny bit (I made my diamond layer larger and my sentiment layer smaller), but other than that, it's pretty true to the sketch.

The 5.5x5.5 base is from We Are Memory Keepers. It came from a box of 20 or so card bases and envelopes. I bought it at Marshall's along with the metal alphabet I showed you on the canvas I made for Eldest Son. Just $3.99! The next layer, what appears to be peeling paint, is a scrap piece of Cosmo Cricket paper. I'm not sure who makes the paper I used in the diamond layer. The bible verse is the first Plain Jane stamp that Julee released last month. It was stamped on a pre-made tag using Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan. Here is a closer look:

Here's a quick shot of what I spent my day doing yesterday...watching Youngest Son play in an All-Star baseball tournament.
It was a beautiful day, but I made sure to watch most of the games under my umbrella protected from the sun. It was scorching hot! My fair skin can't handle it. Today the team is playing in the championship game, so we are excited!

Hope you have a great Sunday, peeps.



  1. great card! I like colour you used, and that ribbon too, embossed paper give something extra to the background, and of course the sentiment is GREAT!

    have a blessed Sunday!

  2. Love your card!! It's gorgeous, as always. :)

  3. The card is lovely! I love those colors a lot!

  4. Congrats to your son and his team. This card is gorgeous. I love the swiss dots on that dp. Just beautiful.

  5. I love this and also love the canvas you did.
    So sorry to hear about Eric's breakup. That is a really tough thing. I remember my first high school boyfriend breakup...good song at that time, Unanswered Prayers by Garth.
    It is so great though that you guys have such an open relationship and that you are there to listen to him and not just tell him he's young and he'll get over it soon. You are a great mom and I hope to one day have as great of communication with my son as you do with yours.
    Take care!

  6. Card is cool - I bet it was hot at the Allstar game.

  7. Oh I love the peeling paint paper. It looks so cool. The card fits together very well. Love it.
