Viva la Verve!!!

Hello!  I was able to catch up on my February Viva la Verve cards : )  Here is the inspiration photo I chose from week 2:
I seriously ADORE this porch~minus the duck picture LOL!  Here is my card:

I used this gorgeous silhouette from the Verve set Because of you, and added a butterfly from the Verve set Beautiful Kindness.  I stamped the butterfly onto some coordinating dp from Making Memories Chloe's Closet, and cut it out.  Here is the picture I chose for week 3:

Isn't it just GORGEOUS!!!  I always say I would love to have like 7 houses that I could decorate all different ways!  Sometimes I love color, sometimes I love whitewashed walls.  Sometimes I like fancy and modern, sometimes I like distressed country!  Distressed and comfortable is my all time favorite style, so I will have to stick with that until we win the lottery hahaha!  Ok, onto my card:

I used the beautiful Verve set Accent Notes and dp from Basic Grey Eva.  I will leave full recipes below!  Thank you so much for stopping by again : )

I love that porch too-also, minus the duck pic! LOL My Mother used to decorate with ducks back in the 80's and I hated it. She even put one in my room as a door stop and I made it go away! LOL Both your cards are stunning!

Gosh you do the bestest job with inspiration challenges - the colors and the themes are always well-represented. Although I would have loved to see a duck in that first one *giggles* - whatchu got against ducks? What have the poor little duckies ever done to you?? ROTFL

Linda aka backroads girl said...

Both of your cards are simply stunning. I too, love that porch! Ah, well. Maybe our mansions in heaven will have a great porch!

Hugs, Mom

Oh, I love that porch, too. Also, minus the duck picture....hee hee.

The layout on the top card is so fun. I just love you how your embossing and the patterns and layout gives so much depth to your card.

Great Job!!! I love that butterfly... I think rearranging and redecorating and all sorts of styles is PERFECT!!! HA HA I change my mind all the time... it drives my husband nuts... certain things just catch my eye and they never have to be the same style... I thought I was just indecisive... :)
