a little new, a little old

I'm still having so much fun with my new Verve stamps - today I'm using Floral Whimsy. There is another sketch with a {twist} over in the Verve forum for this week and the twist is to use something new - well that's not difficult, got my new stamps! Everything else on the card is old, Old, OLD, but still very, very loved all the same. You may recognize the Maine Blueberry paper (yep, use it all the time and I'm needing some different paper here people!) and of course my new favorite ribbon treatment with the Latte button. Love that. Oh, and I used my second library clip, haha! I love them, I just forget about them. I'm all caught up for the June challenges over there, so now I can get on with all my usual sketch challenges and inspirations. I hope you are having a wonderful day!

See you back soon!

  1. Holy cow girl - you're killin' me!! This is awesome!! Ya know, I still haven't used a SINGLE library clip - and I just HAD to have those little things!! I can never seem to figure out what to do with them. I just might have to CASE this so I know I can effectively use a library clip!! LOL.

  2. This is so pretty Karen. Great job.

  3. Super pretty, Karen! I love the colors, image, and embellishments!

  4. So beautiful! I still haven't used any of those library clips either, but they look pretty on my shelf! LOL Love the ribbon treatment. So glad you're enjoying your new stamps. :)

  5. Ooohhh there's that GORGEOUS Bow again!!!! BEautiful.


  6. This is gorgeous, Karen! I love the colors in Maine Blueberry.

  7. Wow! Love the colors and the whole card. I might have to break down and buy the Library clips.....
