I finally get to share with you "my stamp". Okay, it's just a quote that I chose to be made into a stamp, but I call it mine. For Verve Stamps' one year anniversary, otherwise known as the anni-Verve-sary, Julee had each designer choose a quote or saying to be included in the anni-Verve-sary set, Beautiful You. (available August 13) I scoured the internet and came up with this:
"Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance"-Oprah Winfrey
Didn't Julee just fancy it up perfectly?!? I'm so tickled. Anyway, I chose this sentiment because it reminds me of dancing around the kitchen with my mom to "the oldies", of good times with girlfriends, of swing dancing with my husband, and yes, I still twirl across my own kitchen floor. A day with dancing, is a day worth living. It just makes me that happy.
Enter to win this entire stamp set by leaving a comment on this thread in the Verve Forum.
Now for the card:
I started with today's Anni-Verve-sary sketch. (That link will take you to the master thread of sketch challenges so you can play along for any or all of the twelve days.) I stamped "my" sentiment directly on some Perhaps paper, and started layering with Spellbinders die cuts. That purdee ribbon, I got it for a dollar for TEN YARDS at Michaels a while back! If you notice a little glitter in the upper right corner, that's because I accidentally set one of the corners, with glue, there for a second. I couldn't quite get it all off, so a little clear glitter added some unexpected bling.
