My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then spin me around 'til I fell asleep...

Another day, another Verve Sneak Peek! And yet another chance to win this set here on the Verve Blog, so go check it out!

I have been in a simple mood lately with my cards, and this one is no different. My dad isn't a big fan of doo-dads and ribbon, so I kept this one doo-dad free. *wink* This new set from Verve (available tomorrow) is called Father Figure. It's perfect for Dads and Husbands, and can be used in so many ways.

Julee's Mojo Monday #32 sketch a few weeks ago was my starting point for this card. I'm not sure where my color combo came from (probably scraps that were on my desk), but I really like it.
My favorite part of this stamp set is the paragraph stamp that reads, "There are so many words that define you. You're a man of integrity, a role model, provider, protector, teacher and friend." How cool is that?! Perfect for my dad, anyway.

Don't forget, you can still use the code SHANNANROCKS until tonight at midnight to get 15% off your Verve order. Have a happy Thursday!

I ADORE this card, Shannan! The colors, the understated background biased stripes... everything is mojolicious. Hubby wowed over it and said, "That's so crisp and awesome!" so I'm sure your dad is gonna love it! :)

I don't have any Verve Visual sets yet, but this one looks like a "must have". Thanks for sharing your ideas.
