There's no chance unless you take one, and it's time to see the brighter side of every situation...

Happy Wednesday, peeps! What have y'all been up to? I have been working my fanny off, as well as trying to get a head start on school supply shopping. I'm almost done...SHOCKER!

I have a couple of Verve cards to show you today...hope you enjoy!


This is a super Clean and Simple (CAS) card using Always on My Mind. I wanted to use the new Japanese Masking Tape I got a while back, so I added a few score lines with my Scor-Pal, added some tape (isn't it fabulous?), then popped the sentiment up on dimensionals. I love how it turned out!


This card uses the Blue Skies set...my favorite from the June release. I stamped the background using one of the flourishes and Versamark, then added the notebook page with the fabulous quote. Some ric-rac and a border punch finish it off quite nicely, I think.

I'm so glad you stopped by today...hope your day is going great so far. Don't forget to check out the Project Parade on the Verve Blog, and sign up for the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop in this thread on the SCS Forum.

Have a fabulous day...see you soon!

I love your first card! I like the second one a lot, too, but the first one really pops with the orange on kraft :)

You're way ahead of me with school supplies - I just moved here to TX and haven't even registered my son yet for school! Enjoy the rest of the summer :)

Both are lovely, Shannan! I bought some of that tape too, but I still haven't figured out what to do with it. ;-)
