Viva la Verve-January 2012 Week 1

Hi friends, we are starting Viva la Verve once again after taking a break through the holidays....yippie!  I am soooo exciting about getting back into creating our Friday sketches.  You can play along with us here.  I have made a birthday card using the Verve stamps sets Cupcake Affair and Big Wish.  I have added a gemstones flourish, stitching, and stickles to the cupcake.  You will luv this sketch, a great way to use up patterned paper...and if you are like me you have tons of scrap paper....teehehehe.  I have played along with a couple of challenges listed below.  I hope you have a super weekend, be sure to spend some quality time with a family member...enjoy!  I want to share this quote with you today....
