On a Clear Night

The house is quiet. The kiddos are tucked away in their beds....ahh the sweet sound of peace. I relish these moments. I hide away in my office when everyone's gone to bed and engulf myself in my comfy headphones...either jamming out to some fun Pop music or the soothing sounds of John Mayer, Jem, or the likes of Missy Higgins. I love keeping up tabs in my Google Reader...I wish I had more time to leave comments. That's been one of my resolutions this year....to let those that inspire me know that they have. There are sooo many! I'll not make this too wordy. Just wanted to share a little snippit of me with you. :)

So I hadn't had a chance to post some of my creations as a Verve Guest Diva and I'm dying to share! Unfortunately, I slept right through the Release party on the Splitcoast forums. I was soo bummed. My friend Anitra called me and woke me up at 10:30 PM! I'm such a weak one. I drank only one margarita for dinner and then promptly snuggled up in bed with my son and ventured into la-la land. :)

This first card uses the set Heart's Desire. I just love this super elegant Valentine set. I felt the images were so soft and delicate and pretty, so I wanted to really convey that in my card. I used really gentle colors...so soothing!




And I always love doing my Clean and Simple cards. Here's one that I did using Accent Notes coupled with a sentiment from Celebrating You.


I just loved being able to build my own little pattern from all the gorgeous background builders and accents.

I still have more to share...for another day. :) It's almost 1 AM. Time to start creating.

Melissa! These are STUNNING. The first card is amazing with the tiny hearts stamped on the sentiment panel. AND that second one literally took my breath away. Perfect with it's black/cream/kraft simplicity yet in perfect balance. A treasure!! Hugs,
