VLVFEB2011 Week 2

It's Saturday!!!! Yeah!!! Me and my hubby are going to the movies this afternoon and then to see a movie!  The King's Speech! Happy Valentines to us....just a few days early!
Who wants to celebrate on a "school night"?
Besides, my weekly scrapping meet is every Monday night! See where my priorities lie?
Enough about my personal life!

This is my latest contribution to the Viva la Verve Sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers.
 I just love these papers! So bright and cheery! A reminder that Spring is coming soon!

The sketch called for stitching! OMG! I have had this little craft Singer sewing machine that I purchased from Big Lots about 6 months ago! I've just stared at it ever since! It was very scary to me!
But then I saw this challenge and decided to put on my big girl pants and give it a whirl! Now don't look too close, because it is my very first time...but I did it! I think I'm gonna like using this machine!
I've always loved seeing stitching on other people's cards and thought it looked so cool. Now I'm ready to experiment, too! I also distressed the 2 panels in the middle of the card with a tool that I got from Stampin' Up.

                                                   Paper: Cosmo Cricket "Garden Variety"
                                                   Stamps: Verve "Big Wish"
                      Accessories: Verve "Embossed Oval" die; Singer sewing craft machine;
                                       SU Distressing tool; brads, button, Prima flower, ribbon, and twine

Hope you enjoy!

P.S. I love your comments!
