Verve...and the last hours

Here for your viewing enjoyment will be two Verve cards on one post. Week three and week four are due by midnight tonight so I have to get cracking.
The power went out Thursday night at 6:30. Lightning hit the transformer. the company said it may be back on by 11 pm and then another automated call said Friday, 1 am. forget the heat, forget the rotting food in the fridge, forget that it will be dark at 9 pm and...forget that I wanted to watch Big Brother!!! I wasn't going to get my last two cards uploaded on SCS and I struggled at 4:30 this morning to get them done before Mimi's Summer Camp started at 7:30am. I watched out the window while the line men were doing their thing. i watched them pull away at 9:45 and no power, yet. The antiquated phone that I keep for these purposes rang and the automated voice told me the power would be restored by Friday......Forget the Verve!!!! Then I hear a series of beeps.....but no light...nothing. I head over to the bedroom where I see light ...and lo and behold the power is on!!!! Ran down here and got the cards uploaded to SCS got the champion thread done and then sat to do the blog.
Now it is 11:24 pm and the eyes are heavy......so here's the quickie you have always waited for....
Week three---
And the card........the rectangle is behind rather than in front of the main image. (It's a piece of vellum.)
Week four......
And the card...again something behind not in front, and no room for a tag.
Two hearts...one black and embossed and the other gold and ran through the wavy crimper. This paper is from one sheet....love the front and back from SU..the name escapes me. All sentiments are from Verve, 'Blessings' and a Plain Jane, 'Nature'
Thanks for coming by!!!!

Joanne: Oh, how I LOVE Verve stamps. As a matter of fact, I have an order en route to my house right now that I can wait to get my hands on. I just adore them! Your blog is lovely - today in the first day I found it. I just "followed" you, and I really enjoyed looking at everything. I would be THRILLED if you would stop by to visit my blog and also "follow" me. I need the followers. Thanks for sharing your work, and I look forward to checking back.
Blessings,
Karen
