March Viva la Verve Challenge – Week 1 and Week 2

I was able to get into my craft room this past weekend for a little while. It takes a bit of planning. As soon as Claire falls asleep (and stays asleep), I head down and get to work. Any distraction along the way (sleep, laundry, food, dishes, etc) usually means my craft time disappears so it requires focus!!

I really wanted to play with the March Viva La Verve sketches. I got two of them done and almost got a third finished. Three days left to get them done before the posting deadline!

Here is the card I made with the Week 1 sketch. This is one of my new Riley’s I bought with the January release. I think he’s adorable!

And this is the Week 2 card. It’s not often that I make a card without an actual stamped image.  I wasn’t sure how these flowers would turn out, but I really like the outcome. Best of all, I used several pieces from my “odds and ends” pile.

I’ll be back later this week to post the last two cards (assuming I get them done!!)

  4. WOW! I love your cards. Both of them are beautiful. I especially like the Riley one!

  5. Love the riley one and the flowers on the second one. I recently order some riley stamps for the first time. They are so cute, I can’t wait to ink them!!!
