Verve sketch

I hope you're all having a happy Easter! We spent a gorgeous day with a family today. I was especially glad to see how happy Zuzia was, playing with her cousins outside. We don't have a big backyard at our house, so our parents' big property is heaven for her, where she can run until she wears out (although it rarely ever happens :))
I've had a very intense couple of days, preparing for Easter, working, entertaining Zuzia and trying to keep up with my assignments. There's quite a lot going on ATM, on the card-making field, and I'm finding myself being just about on time with everything :)
None the less, I did manage to squeeze in one card that I could readily share with you, and it was made for the last Verve sketch for April (VLVApr2011 Week 4):

Supplies: cardstock: recycled kraft, American Crafts (brown), cream; paper: My Mind's Eye (Stella & Rose - Hazel); stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps (Mother's Day Bouquet); ink: Memento (Rich Cocoa), Versa Magic (Sea Breeze); sewing machine; Nestabilities Ovals, Scalloped Ovals; buttons; grosgrain ribbon; string: AnnaBelle Stamps; decorative sticker: Pink Paislee

The stamps are a part of the Mother's Day Bouquet stamp set, that I designed for AnnaBelle Stamps. I paper pieced the bouqued, and popped up on the foam tape.
Have a great rest of the holidays! See you tomorrow,
