Glory to the Newborn King

vlvnovweek3

Good morning!  I knew this week would go by quickly just because it’s report card writing weekend!  LOL  I’ve relinquished all the household duties to the DH this week and will knock these babies off ASAP :)  Then I’ll be able to focus on getting ready for Christmas :)  Today’s card uses the new Viva La Verve sketch by our own sweet Diva Janelle.  I had a few ideas for this sketch, but opted for a shabby/vintage feel as I was using a spiritual sentiment.  I chose this particular stamp from the newly released Joyous Noel because of the way it fit so well on the Ribbon Banner die :)  I also had this gold Ribbon Banner shape in my “use me!” pile so then I just had to follow the vintage feel with a doily and stitching :)

I hope you’ll join us this week over on the Viva La Verve Forum!  If you play all month with all the sketches, you could win $100 in Verve Dollars!  Now that would be one FANTASTIC shopping spree!  Have a glorious day!

Yes! That sentiment works perfectly with the banner die. I will need to pull mine out. And more jingle bells! They are a perfect touch!

This is amazing and I'm with you on the jingle bells - they are so fun!! Too bad I have no idea where mine went to hide after the move! I must, must, must find time to play along with Verve - I have quite a wish list of new stamps, too! :)
