To Risk

Hi all! I hope you're week is going well! It's been a busy one for me. First, Sabrina started school on Monday. Then, Stacy and I spent a couple of days at the Southwest Show previewing some of the new products that were announced at Summer CHA a few weeks ago. She will have some fun, new products in her store, The Scrapbooking Cottage, very soon!

Besides not having a lot of time to stamp this week, I haven't felt real inspired either. I did manage to come up with this simple card using Mercy's sketch #35. I absolutely love this sketch ~ I will definitely be using it again!

Last week, we went to Meet the Teacher Night at Sabrina's school and Sara {one of Sabrina's wonderful teachers} and her daughter asked me if I had heard about Smirk. Smirk is an entire line of cute, cute scrapbooking/stamping papers, embellishments, etc. Well, I hadn't heard of it before, but thanks to her enabling, I not only know about it, but I now own some of it! The patterned paper is from Smirk ~ Naughty But Nice collection. I used one of Verve's new Plain Janes, To Risk. If you check out the Verve shop, you can get this stamp free with a purchase right now!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
