Half Price Papper and Verve Will do the Trick

Hello, Thanks for stopping by. I've got 3 sketch challenges for you today. They all offer blog candy, so cross your fingers that I win! This first card I made for Roe to send over seas to a friend fighting in the war. This is one of my favorite scriptures. I also have it written on my dining room wall. I used today's Mojo Monday Week 81 sketch. This is a super easy sketch and great to use up some of those scraps laying around. The scripture and cross are from Verve's Jeremiah 29:11. The paper is a pad of half price "Luxury Stack" I picked up from Hobby Lobby. I don't know if you can tell in the pics, but it is "pearlized". Very shimmery. I only added a bit of SU ribbon and some brown baubles. The "Praying for You..." is from SU and is up on pop dots.
This next card sketch is from a site called I wanted to use my new Thoughts and Prayers set from SU. I've had it awhile, but have only used one sentiment once. Again, I tried to keep this one simple and not to flashy. The paper is from the same stack as the above. The top ribbon, under the tree is tulle, and I just forgot how to spell it. It is pretty wide, so I scrunched it up under the legs of the brads. The other two ribbons are from SU. The Bee Brad is Basic Grey.

Finally, this card is made from the same "Luxury Paper Pack" as the others, I just used a different color. The sketch is from Jen's SFYTT @ I also used Our Creative Corner's challenge which was to make an Easter card. I like to kill 2 birds with one stone if I can. The stamp set is from Verve's Everlasting Life. Yes, I finally ordered some Verve and just couldn't wait to play. You may see some cute Verve Bunnies in the future! I added a little bit of lace at the bottom of the panel at the bottom and some garter ribbon in the middle. I used tiny pearls to make the butterfly trail and the butterfly punch is from Martha Stewart and is one of my favs. Finally, a tiny crystal to emphasize the head.
Thanks for stopping by!
