Viva La Verve!

I have a bit more Verve to share today! This past week I completed all the Viva La Verve challenges all with the 'twists' of course and I was eligible for the Viva La Verve Champion. Guess what?! I actually won, I am still in shock, my name was randomly selected and I will be getting an either release worth of stamps from Verve. Its been a few days and I swear I haven't come down from hearing that I won! So I would like to say thank you to Julee for having theses great challenges and prizes and thank you to Amber for posting some amazing sketches every week! Now on to the cards! Since I won for completing all 5 challenges, today I am posting all five cards together, hope you enjoy!

Surprisingly enough, each sketch I seemed to pull another color to use, what are the odds of that?! Honestly that never happens with me, I tend to get stuck in color families but not this time. My second card is my favorite sketch and favorite card from the grouping, although a lot of people seem to like the first card I posted above.I am a bit behind in my birthday card stash and the two cards above I plan to give out as birthday cards to friends and family. I can't wait to see the response I get from them, I have some people in mind for these cards too, I know they will love them!Both this Mother's Day card and the first card I made for one of the guys at work, I still have two more I need to complete for his cards. Can you believe that Mother's Day is almost here? Its already the beginning of May, I can't believe that its already that late in the year, where did half of 2009 go? Oh yea, I slept through about two months of it...oops!My last card I followed the sketch and made it a nice spring card, I love how I worked with the shades of these colors, I think it really works well. A little too simple maybe but fun all the same. Hope you enjoy all the cards I shared today, I really had a lot of fun creating cards for this challenge and thank you again to Julee for making the prize so amazing, I can't wait to see the next stamps to be released!
