Viva la Verve January week 1

Good evening my crafty friends!! Wow I have been MIA for far too long! 
I feel I should explain myself.... Morning sickness aka all day sickness is for the birds!
On a bright note, we will hopefully have a healthy and happy Baby Boy in May!
His name is going to be Elias which is a version of Elisha or Elijah and it means 
Jehovah is God or Jehovah is our God. So anyways I had a very trying first
trimester and it took everything I had to get out of bed and go to work. Since then,
the past couple weeks have been better. Still tired as all get out, but I am finally starting
to want to get my mojo and motivation back for crafting!!

So here is my first card in about a month! I followed the January week 1
sketch from Viva la Verve. I loved what Lesley had done with her flowers 
Here, so I decided to give it a try with my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

Enabler's List:

Stamps: Verve - Great Friend and Verve - Faith Medley
Ink: Ranger black archival
Paper: watercolor and CTMH Gypsy
Misc: Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens in lilac and violet


  1. Congrats, Hillary! That's so exciting... and morning sickness is DEFINITELY for the birds! Ugggh! Glad you're starting to feel better. This card is simply gorgeous! Love the purples. Thanks for playing along with Viva la Verve!

  2. Congratulations, Hillary! I'd been wondering where you were at...hoping all was well. Sounds like it definitely is (or will be eventually, a least). Morning sickness can be rough.

    Your card is lovely, as always. :-)
