I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow, and each road leads you where you want to go...

My sister and I took my dad last night to see Rascal Flatts...we had so much fun! We were out late, and I'm still too pooped to pop! Before we left though, I did get a chance to make a Sneak Preview card for the Verve release on Wednesday. Priorities, right?

I used Emily's awesome color challenge from this week, which was to use Kraft, Soft Sky, and Black. Love it!! The set I'm previewing today is called Asian Flair, and will be available to purchase on Wednesday. Whatcha think?

Cool, huh?! I stamped the geometric square pattern on the Sky card base in Soft Sky ink, then sponged and embossed it with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. To get the squares perfectly centered on the white strip, I cut a 2" strip and drew pencil lines (with my ruler, of course) 1/2" in from the top and bottom. This gave me a good 1" path to stamp my squares. The rest came together on its own...which is just what I needed since I was griping that my mojo was lost! I guess it was just hiding under the mess on my desk. *grin*

For more projects using the Asian Flair set and a chance to win it, check out the Verve Blog today. Make sure you check back Monday and Tuesday for more samples and giveaways, and then Wednesday for the big reveal! Have a fabulous Sunday!
