I am back from a long weekend in Virginia visiting my sister.  It was fun and we totally shopped til we dropped.  My parents road with us and we all had a blast.  We took my mom out for a belated Birthday dinner celebration on Saturday night.  She was alittle beside herself with the restaurant crew came out singing their Birthday song very loud.  The look on her face was priceless.  

As for me, I was really amazed at how cheap the gas prices were in Va.  It was $3.17 on Friday.  It is $3.68 here in NC.  What is up with that?     Anyway, enough chit chat.  On to the card for today. 


I am using the Viva La Verve Sketch Week 4.  Charmaine is the host this week.  I love this clean and simple sketch design.  I forced myself to keep this card a little CAS for me.  I am using Verve's Miracles Blossom and Isaiah 61:3 Plain Jane for my card.  I did sneak in the grid panel from the newly released Making a Statement.  I thought it created a cool textural background.  I stamped it on an angle behind the sentiment.   All the Anniversary sets and dies can still be purchased at a special discount.  Check out the link to find out more.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
