Big Wish



Hi there. This weekend FLEW by, didn't it? It was a productive weekend for me. I started painting our rec room walls and stairwell on Saturday, made this card on Sunday morning, went to a (very COLD...OMG, brrrrrr!) 5k run with a couple running buddies, came home and did some more painting. I just have to do a second coat on three walls some night this week and I'll be allllll done. It's lookin' GOOD down there. The fresh coat of paint on the ceiling, stairwell and walls has made a HUGE difference. Very exciting! :)

So anyway....you're here about the card, right? :) I made this one for the Viva la Verve Week One Sketch:



Stamps are from Verve's "Big Wish" set, the banner sentiment (die from MFT) is up on foam tape, the My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy Girl papers are machine stitched, the edges of the ivory panels were distressed with my fingernail, I colored the image with Copics, and Stickles were added to the cake and flower for extra sparkle. I think I'll send this card to my aunt. Her birthday is coming up next week.

Okay, that's it for me today. I gotta get to work now. Have a great Monday, all!
