Viva La Verve - Determined!


I hope you've all had a fabulous Christmas and have some good plans for New Years Eve tomorrow :)

It's been a quiet, but very nice Christmas here.  Just myself and my other half and a few good friends - what more can a girl ask for?!!  The other good thing about having a quiet Christmas is that I have had the opportunity to make good use of my new work space - no more sitting on the floor for me!

I have been unable to join in with the Viva La Verve sketches over the past few months, but I am DETERMINED to do my utmost to complete every sketch challenge this year - this is my personal challenge anyway!  :)  With this resolution in mind I have already created my card for week one! I'm hoping that this is how the rest of the year will go on, we will have to see :)

VLV has been shaken up a bit and it is no longer just a sketch challenge, but there is an inspiration board that can be used alongside the sketch, or not, it is optional.  I have decided to use both the sketch and the inspiration board - I hope it shows!



And here is my take;

This card actually turned out more yellow than I expected - I was aiming more for the orange and turquoise, but there you go, these things happen! 

As always, thank you for dropping by and enjoy your New Year celebrations ;)

Merry Christmas!

It arrived so quickly this year - it's Christmas once again!

I would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas :) I don't have a pretty image to post today and I have been somewhat MIA of late - life has thrown a whole bunch of stuff at us over the past few months - but we're still here fighting strong! But this is a feel good message!

I would like for anyone who reads this to have an absolutely fabulous day today - eat and drink too much, laugh until your sides hurt and treasure all your loved ones, may it be spending the day with them or from afar :)

I shall try and make sure my next post isn't too far away and has a pretty picture in!! That's why we're all here after all!

Merry Christmas everyone! :)
