But I woke up this morning a little less excited when I realized that there was no school today. Aren't I a terrible mother? I do so much better when the kids are gone and then they come home!
So I decided to perk myself up with a heart card for Verve's Diva Dare Smitten Challenge. Verve has a sale on Love Themed Stamps so I finally picked up a die set that had been on my list forever - the I_Heart U die set. The dies do have a coordinating stamp set but it has been sold out - that's OK - the dies work just fine on their own!
This Viva la Verve was an "and/or" challenge with an inspiration challenge. I can't say that I was heavily influenced by the inspiration, but it is sometimes funny how it works. The sketch and inspiration were up on my computer screen. At that time my card had a berry colored heart (like in the paper) and the whole thing was all just mounted on white - but it was dull. I looked up and saw the purple in the inspiration - then reached for lavender paper. It's amazing how much the lavender background and glittered heart added to the card.
