Rainy Days & Mondays

Sooo not my favorite day. But ya gotta make the best I think!

I took a break from making some super cute Verve Samples (which you'll see later!!) to do the Sketch Challenge from last week. I really have been itching to use my new Wanted set, and finally did!!

I was doing so great at keeping this "pure" Stampin Up, but that background really needed to be embossed with my Textile Cuttlebug Folder. You understand, don't you? I knew you'd still love me.

And don't forget to check the Verve Blog today...you're going to love the new sets and the sneak peeks that are coming this week! I can't wait to show you the project I did this weekend!!

Stamps: Wanted, All Holidays
Paper: Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Papertrey White, Chocolate Chip, Outlaw DP
Ink: Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Vintage Brads, HP Hardware, Distressor tool, Wide Chocolate Grosgrain, Round Tab Punch, Cuttlebug Textile folder, Dimensionals

Ohhhhhhh this is RICH!! mmmmmmm! A girl could get some good mileage out of an awesome card like this! Just think of all the stamp bills that could be "forgiven" with this handsome token placed into the hands of the bill payer! hahaha
