Catching Up

OK, summer is winding down and things are super busy here in the Woerner house! This week is my husband's vacation time and we have been having such a blast doing the "StayCation thing". Tomorrow morning we are heading to the coast to Tillamook (ever hear of Tillamook cheese?) for a night. The boys have never seen the ocean, so this will be a GREAT time.

I am playing catch up with my posts, and I have some cards to share! These first cards were made for Charmaine's "Getting to know the VERVE Divas, part 6" challenge which was to make a black and white card with a splash of color. I used Verve's set Artful Elegance for the sentiment and used some of my black and white DP I got at Target. The ribbon is from May Arts and I got it at All That Scraps. I love it, it is super soft and not stiff at all! These cards were EASY PEASY to make!

This card was for this week's sketch challenge over at SCS. I really love square cards, so this sketch was right up my alley! I used Verve's Fairy Tales set and embossed it with Gold EP. This set has lots of other sentiments -really it does! But for some reason I am drawn to that "Happily Ever After" stamp. In case you haven't noticed, I LOVE making wedding cards!! That amazing gold cardstock is from Creative Memories. It is retired, so I found it on the EBay!! The beautiful satin edged metallic ribbon and gold cord are from Heidi's store!

Here is the sketch, if you want to play along!

This card is for Julee's "Meet the VERVE Divas, part 7" challenge. As queen of sketches, it's no surprise her challenge was a sketch! I used Verve's Grateful Elegance set. Once again I used some of the Luxury pack from DCWV. I love this paper!! It has an awesome pearly sheen to it. I stamped the filagree stamp all over the More Mustard panel for the BG and again on some scraps to punch out the flowers. I used the SU! Boho Blossom punch -it was the perfect shape for the sketch.

There is STILL time to play along. If you upload your card by August 28th, you will be eligible for Julee's random drawing for $15 in Verve Bucks!!

AND, stay tuned to next Thursday's Meet the VERVE Diva. It JUST may be a Diva who loves ROSES... Hummmmm... wonder who it could be????
One last thing before I forget!!! Yesterday started off the August Project Parade over at Verve's blog. If you are new to the Project Parade, it is 11 days and each day a Verve Diva posts a project made from the challenge that Julee set. This month it is a LOVELY color challenge. Be sure to check it out! And, of course, there is a PRIZE! If you play along and upload by September 3rd, you will be eligible for a random drawing for $15 in Verve Bucks!!


  1. Fabulous card, Michelle! Love them all. Have fun at the coast. I loved visiting the Tillamook factory last time I went to the Oregon coast. The YUMMIEST ice cream ever! :)

  2. These are all fabulous Michelle! Love your flower cards and the pink sketch is beautiful!

  3. All of them are gorgeous, Michelle! Absolutely gorgeous!

  4. The simplicity of your first cards are what makes them so elegant. The second one is so pretty with your main image and the opposite corners really make the image pop. The third is just wonderful with the flowers, their centers, and the wonderful way you did the greeting.TFS

  5. Love the cards!!!!

    Tillamook is WONDERFUL! I haven't been in several years, but it was GORGEOUS when we went with my mother (who lives in Portland). Took the factory tour. Hubby got samples and was DELIGHTED!
