Good morning and thanks for stopping by! I just realized that in 10 short weeks, we will be heading to Germany to see hubby. I'm excited. I want to go to London, Paris, Prague, and Brussels while I am there..of course we're only there for 10 days, so something might have to be chopped (Do you hear that, Brussels? lol). I've been on Weight Watchers for 2 weeks now and have lost almost 7lbs. I'm so geeked about that. I just love WW and their new Points Plus system rocks!

Anyway, this isn't Dottie's Weight Loss Zone and you didn't come here to hear about Today I am playing along with the 2nd of the Verve sketches for January. Head on over to the Verve forum on Splitcoaststampers for more info on the weekly sketches and monthly prizes. Here is this weeks' sketch by Charmaine:

And here is the card I made using it:

Love those colors together. Pretty soon it'll be spring and I will "have to" break out the more springy colors, so I am using the remaining winter to utilize my love of all things earth toned. That's all I have today. Thank you for stopping in! :)


Stamps: Kind Words (Verve)
Card Stock: Vintage Vanilla, Scarlet Jewel, Deep Chocolate (papertrey)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Extras: Vintage Wallpaper and Square Lattice embossing folders (SU); Ribbon, buttons

Hi Keva,
great card love the embossing.

Well done at Weight Watchers, I'm doing the WW plan too, and have lost 38lbs so far. I have 2lbs to go to get to goal, but I'm stuck. But I'm not giving up I will get there.

Hugs Carolx
