CR84FN43 -- May Your Spirits be Bright

Hello! It's been since the beginning of the week since I've posted anything, but life has been a bit busy. It's time for a brand new CR84FN Challenge! CR84FN43 will last for 2 weeks. Our color palette is Brown, Tan and Green. Photos courtesy of Becca Rillo Photography.

I got some happy mail from Verve this week, so I pulled out one of the new releases, Bright Spirits, and used one of the beautiful sentiments from it. I just love this pretty, scripty font!

It's been awhile since I've had a chance to play along with one of the Viva la Verve sketches. Each week, the Divas create these wonderful sketches. This one is Viva la Verve, November week 2, a great sketch by Jackie!
