Happy MAY Day

VLVwk4 and Kjournal.4.26.11_jdgilch 003
I have a wonderful Mother figure in Maine. She just lost her darling husband weeks ago and I thought that a Mother’s Day card just might cheer her up a bit!!
This is my Verve’s Viva la Verve sketch for week four. Shannon created this great sketch and even a tutorial for creating the starbursts.

Beautiful card Joanne! I love your take on the sketch and your stitching.



Are you still using LW? I am getting used to it and think I like it.

E is on spring break. I have the day off work on Friday and we are going to do something fun. (Not sure exactly what yet)


Have a wonderful weekend!
