Viva la Verve: Many Blessings

I took one look at the current sketch at Viva la Verve and could picture one of my favorite mini sets - Many Blessings - and its row of simple little flowers.

Many Blessings

I love coloring the various blooms that Verve has.  There are so many sweet layers and cute touches like the cross-hatched centers.  It's a happy day when I get to color such cheerful flowers.

I turned in all of my classwork yesterday and have a week off.  I have a month's worth of cleaning to do at my craft desk (and most of you knows what happens if you even skip cleaning after one cardmaking session!)  But today...after coloring these sweet flowers...I'm taking a day off of everything.  I have the last four episodes of this season's Downton Abbey to watch and a few other shows that I like (but am embarrassed to mention!)  I'm not good at "lazy" - wish me luck!!!

  1. Cute card Kim, love those little towers! Enjoy your day off and the fabulous Downton Abbey!!!

  2. Fun and fabulous, Kim!! Now, go and embrace laziness!! I just started watching Downton Abbey myself over the weekend. I watched six episodes of the first season in one sitting! Allow me to be your example for embracing the lazy!!!

  3. You have used the flowers to perfection for this sketch, Kim :) Darling card.

  4. What a beautiful and much needed taste of Spring!

  5. Such a fun, spring-y card; your row of flowers are darling! As for being 'lazy" (somehow "Kim" and "lazy" would never appear in the same sentence!), you more than deserve some couch and relaxation time! Add some spoiling and pampering to the mix!! Enjoy whatever you decide to do. I've not watched Downton Abbey (I know, I know), but Sherlock...fabulous!!

  6. Absolute loveliness! Gorgeous coloring and I just love your three banner sentiment.

  7. Kim, this is darling in all it's wonderful CASness (how's that for a new word) *giggle* I love Verve products and you've done a terrific job with this set. Love, love the coloring, and that 3 tag banner! Cutie cute cute!
