TODAY'S Featured Set:

plus the Philippians 1:6, Light Tomorrow and Life is Good PJ's






Small Phrases is exactly that......small phrases that are perfect for baby, love, birthday, anniversary and everyday uplifting cards.  This set is perfect for me because more often than not my sentiments are an after thought.  I take so much time on the layout and image that I forget to plan a spot for my sentiment.  Small Phrases are the sweetest little phrases that will fit just about anywhere on your card front without overwhelming the image.  LOVE. THIS. SET.

I had the Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends dp sitting on my desk and decided to use it again.  I stamped the smallest flower from New Mercies (peeked Wednesday) and cut it out with the Charming Oval Die set from Verve.  It was colored with Copics, finished with some adhesive gems and layered on a Spellbinders Lacey Scallop Circle die.  I made this sentiment into a little flag and tucked it behind the flower.  A Divine Twine tied button and some rounded corners finish the card!

The Verve Release Party starts tonight at 9:00 pm EST in the Verve Forums on Splitcoaststampers.  I hope you can join us!

Thanks for stopping by!
