Viva la Verve March Recap

Here's a quick recap of the last two weeks of Viva la Verve sketches for the month of March. This first card was for week 4. The inspiration photos were all different aprons. Now I love to bake, but I am not an apron wearing kind of girl. However, I might be persuaded to wear the apron used as inspiration for this card. I actually have a bag made of this same fabric ( It's designed by Amy Butler - one of my favorites!!)

The inspiration for week 5 was up to us to find. It could be anything from your own kitchen, or a kitcheny photo from the internet or a magazine. I chose this small quilt which sits on my kitchen table as my inspiration. It was made from a Thimbleberries pattern designed by Lynette Jensen. (Another favorite of mine)

So all my cards for the month of March were done, and posted to the March 2010 Champion's Thread over at Splitcoast Stamper's. On Friday morning before I went to church for Good Friday, I checked my email, and SURPRISE... I won for the month of March!!! I won Verve's stamp release for the month of April, and I get to be Amber's sidekick for the sketches for April! How cool is that!!!
