Verve Fan Hop

This month Verve is a hoppin'!  Besides the March Diva Inspirations Hop, there is also a Fan Hop.  I could not resist inking up some Verve and joining in the fun!!!  All you need to do is link up a new creation using at least one Verve stamp by Saturday March 5th at noon MT to this post on the Verve Blog.  There are prizes too!  Verve gift certificates will go to one random participant and one random commentor - gotta love it!  Check out all the participants HERE.

For my card, I went CAS with the set Thankful Accents and brought out some sunny yellow. 

Now this is one of those deceptively simple cards.  It takes me a long time to get it just right because there is no room for error.  The good thing is that I always end up with about 3 or 4 similar cards, most with just a small mistake that the non-stamper will not even notice (or so I tell myself) ;>).

My card is inspired by the latest MFW Tuesday Trigger.  I do not usually reach for such a bright yellow, but I saw the photo and it made me smile and want to create.  I don't know about where you live, but there is still over a foot of snow on the ground at my house and it is no longer pristine and white.  I am ready for the summer sun and green grass!  The lace of the circle stamp recreates the lattice in the door panels and I added just a small small pop of color from the flower.
Oh what fun - such a great way to start the weekend, enjoy hopping!
Smiles,
Julie
