I've Been Thinking about You!

Happy Tuesday!  I have a card to share with you today using Week 2  of the Viva La Verve Sketch.  This week's host is Charmaine!  Love this sketch,Charmaine!  I decided to keep this one fairly simple.  I am using Verve's Blue Skies and Small Phrases stamp sets along with Verve's Cut Above All Aflutter and Charming Banner die sets.

I was fortunate recently when Joanne and Peggy came to my rescue with a paper emergency (wink; wink;).  I really wanted to try some of this Everyday Elegance designer paper from SU.  Well,  both ladies sent me some in the mail.  WooHoo!  Aren't they so sweet!  I wanted to give them both a little shout out here!  This is the first card I have posted using it.  I decided to go mostly poppy on this one, too.  Lots of possibilities with these colors!  Anyway, thanks so much Joanne and Peggy!  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
