Hello, Verve fans, Julee here, with a little recap of the September VLV sketch and a spotlight on a few of the beautiful cards in the linkup already.

Card by Julee Tilman using the Coffee Please Digital Set, Pumpkin Spice Die Set and Happiness in a Cup Die Set
For my second take on this sketch, I decided to flip the sketch and pull out the brand new Coffee Please Digital Set that just released yesterday. The images are printed on my laser printer and with the help of a few existing die sets it was just color, cut and layer. Easy peasy!

Here is the September sketch

Below are just a FEW of the gallery entries from the past two weeks that caught my eye.

These hollyberries just come to life with Berina's coloring

Carmela's sunny litte chevron kettle from Always Time totally makes me smile.

Melissa's sweet little baby card using the Little Ones set is just darling.

Sheri's fabulous details make this sentiment from Be Blessed shine.

Thanks so much for sharing your cards! We so enjoy seeing you create!

My sample card uses the new Scripture Medley 5 stamp set. I picked out some dreamy papers for my panels, then aged them with distress inks. The verse is embossed and I popped up the flower from the set to add to the dreamy look. I finished off with a bit of lace trim.

And here's a beautiful back to school themed sample from Maureen. I kind of wish I was a teacher, just so I could receive a card like this!
