VERVE Release Week Challenges

Henri was home sick today--the day I planned on actually creating FIVE cards to play along with the Verve Release Week Challenge. I thought the deadline was 5pm today but I've got to call it quits. We were given five fabulous sketches and a free digi download. What fun!

With just a few hours I managed to get three of the five done and used these sketches:

I used the digi mittens and sentiment for Sketch VSOCT09C:

The paper is S.E.I. paired with retired SU soft sky and ribbon. I played a little with the sketch, so I hope it works.

For Sketch VSOCT09D, I used another digi image but this time by the talented Mo J. Manning at Digital Pencil Too.

When I saw this Sheep on hills image, I couldn't resist. It reminds me of our trip to Scotland and Wales when I was a kid and the sheep that wouldn't move even when the tide came in--they were stuck on those hills until tide change. This is also one of two cards I did for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #18 this week. I paper pieced the hills using PTI New Leaf cardstock and coloured the flowers and image with copics. Love this sketch and colour combo!

And finally, here's my card for VSOCT09E and also for Dawn's challenge. I've actually stamped the Papertrey stems and sentiment from the Everyday Button this set and everything I've seen done with it! I kept it quite simple given my time constraints and punched out flower tops from the patterned paper. I added stitching to complete the look while still keeping it simple.

Thanks so much for looking!
