Springtime Viva la Verve....

Happy Friday crafting PEEPS! Today is sure bright and sunny here in central Alberta...not too sure what the temp's are outside, but it sure looks lovely out there!

My wonderful, talented crafting PEEP, Tamie, posted an online challenge on her blog late last night for me to create a card today....well, I met that challenge - and then some. I made TWO! LOL...I used the same color combo for both cards, but used different sketches....stay tuned for the 2nd post :o)

Today has been a bit "tense" around the house as the kids are doing their school work, but don't really want to be. Their other friends all have a day off of school, but since mine are homeschooled, they don't. I *usually* let them have the same days off as their friends, but they are a bit behind in their work and the school that they went to last year has SOOOO many P.D. days, that I can't afford to give my kids that much time off. Needless to say, my kids don't really WANT to do school today...LOL...can't say as I blame them...but, I did my schooling, it's their turn...right?! RIGHT!

Alright, onto my I said earlier..I used a very "spring-like" color combination from Just Add Ink and this card was made using the Viva la Verve sketch challenge for this week. Don't forget to hop on over to Verve today sometime and check out their BRAND NEW SETS that will be revealed today in their Spring Fling! A gal can never have too many Verve's! :) is my "lucky ducky" card I created using the combo's:

I really like how this one came together. Isn't that PEEP PEEP cute?!
I am going to get my kids doing a bit more work, and then I'll come back and post my 2nd creation for the all enjoy the sun-shiny Friday afternoon!!! HUGS!
