All about Verve!

Hi Everyone!

Today I have THREE cards to share with you for various Verve projects and challenges. It's been a VERY long time since I've played along with Verve Challenges; but I decided it's never too late, right?! Let's get right to it, shall we?!

This first card is for Week 1 of October's Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge. I used the free digi download Verve offered "Latte Love" that had been available until Oct 15. Did you get your copy? Gosh, I sure hope so! I had a lot of fun coloring the latte cup with my Copic Markers. I am not a Copic coloring expert by any means. I don't own very many of them, so I just play around until I get a result I'm satisfied with. I was quite pleased with this one!

The second card I have today is for week 2 of the VLV October challenge as well as the October Diva Inspiration Challenge: Black, white and glam! I'm not
am not a big Halloween fan, honestly, so I didn't really feel the need to make a Halloween card for this challenge. I decided instead to just go with a more uplifting message instead. I used the leaf background stamp from Simon Says Stamp which I embossed with silver embossing powder. The sentiment is from Verve and whenever I use it, I always feel the need to add a flower or two to my project!

Finally, my third card is for the current Viva La Verve Challenge: Week 3. This was a simple card and relied mostly on the patterned paper in the center. I used a simple sentiment from Verve and added some liquid pearls around the outer circle to add some fun and elegance. 

Ok. That is all for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting with me. I hope you like what I've shared with you.
