Life is Good

Happy Monday!
I'm so thankful to not be doing any overnight trips for work this week. The past three weeks have thrown my creativity time out the window....along with my mojo! LOL!
Looking forward to coming home from work each evening and unwinding in my stamp room :)

I created this card below using the Viva La Verve August Week 2 sketch that you can find in the Verve forum on SCS.
I used some pretty new designer paper that I picked up. Not my usual style but it's nice to step outside the box and try new things!
The stamp set comes from Verve and it's called Beautiful You.
I layered two Verve Dies called Classy Label and Vintage Oval.
Stamps: Beautiful You; Cardstock: Vanilla, Kiwi Kiss, Echo Park DP; Inks: Kiwi Kiss; Accessories: Vintage Oval Die, Classy Label Die, MFT Edge Die, Kiwi/Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Mini Pearls, Dimensionals

On a side note....
Yesterday my sister and her family came by to visit us. We haven't had our families together in a year as they moved to BC last summer. It was great to see them! This is a shot of my nephew, Max and I playing around with the Hipstamtic camera on my iPhone. He's such a ham!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Gorgeous card. I need to get me the new EP paper. I miss my LSS from Ohio. I have to find a new store here.
Your nephew has a right to be a ham. He is as handsome as his aunt is beautiful!
Have a wonderful week.
Hugs and smiles
