Hope and a Future...

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday...again! LOL!

I have been frantically working on swaps for an SU! meeting I am going to on Saturday (doesn't that sounds like fun? I have never been to one so I am excited!), and I am just now getting to do the Viva La Verve Week 4 Sketch Challenge, VLVJan04! The twist for this sketch was to use flowers!!

For some reason, I tend to use Kiwi on all my Verve challenge cards...weird right? Well, for this one, I only have a few Primas that I actually like, and they are green...so there you go! Kiwi again!!

I used one of the newly released Verve sets, Jeremiah 29:11 for this card. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black onto PTI White Cardstock, and then stamped the cross behind the sentiment in Kiwi Kiss.

The polka dot paper is from the Sabrina Collection by Making Memories, and the Primas are Fabric Fancies in Jade. I ran the black panels through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. Notice...I did not pierce a thing on this card! Go Jodi!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
