Wishing You the Best Day Ever!

Happy Sunday!  Hope you are staying cool.  It is absolutely sweltering here in the south!  There are heat advisories out it is so hot and dangerous to be outside.  No problem for a crafter.   Just lock me up in my craftroom and all is good!   For today's card I am using the sketch for this week's Viva La Verve Week 4 sketch challenge.  The host and sketch designer this week is Laurie Schmidlin.  Great sketch, Laurie!  There is time to play for your chance to win some Verve stamps!

 For my card I am using Verve's  Wishing You stamp set.  It is on sale and part of Verve's July Birthday Sale still going on!  I combined this set with a couple of Verve's Cut Above Dies.  I am using the Jotted Heart and Charming Oval dies for this card.   I combined some fun papers, some dyed seam binding, glitter papers, and button to finish my card!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
