verve sketch 1 (vswcmd1)

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. The sunshine has stopped and the sunshine has returned.  It was warmer today and such a beautiful fall day.

I went dress shopping for a dress for Kendra  & Aaron's wedding . It's next Saturday. I wasn't successful at the first store.

I  am looking for a formal dress and  I wanted a long one. There were lots of long dresses at the store but none that I really liked.

I tried on 2 of them but decided I wasn't going to spend the money they were asking for something that didn't have that I thought was just ok.

So  I will be out tomorrow morning searching some other stores. Since I waited so long I cant buy anything that needs altered. But, I am sure that I will find something-hopefully tomorrow.

Well, onto my card for today. I have decided to take part in the Verve fall release week challenges.
This challenge is in honor of world card making day which was Saturday, October 2.There are 5 sketches in all and we have until Friday night @11:59 to complete them. I have 3 finished and the idea for my 4th one. Hopefully, I will get all 5 done.

This is the layout that Julee provided for the first sketch.

I used the Verve Stamp 1Chron 16:34 for my sentiment. On that panel, I also stamped the small leaves from the "great friend" set. My designer paper is from the Stampin-Up collection autumn traditions.

I added some eggplant ribbon and a mustard button and that finished off the first challenge card.

The StampinB blog also has a challenge running this week to make a fall card. My background designer paper and the sentiment works for this challenge as well.  I am using this one as one of my Thanksgiving cards.

It's late and and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day.
