Last friday Verve Stamps had an Anni-VERVE-sary party with a fantastic release of their new stamps. And I must say WOW, every set I WANT, which is very strange 'cause there is always one set that's not my style (from all the different companies I order from). I really wish my bank balance would say 'OK, order them now' but it doesn't :(.

Paperplay and Charisma Cardz

Yep, my card covers two challenges
Paperplay: week 30 - anything goes
Charisma Cardz: challenge 30 - something with a tail
This card I made for my husband who celebrated his birthday on monday (yes it takes me a while to upload on here!). I thought I'd better use some Verve Stamps - as I've ordered quite a few in their 3 year Anniversary sale (I love sales!!!) and the growing number of stamps that have yet to see ink is growing.
Paper: Pink Paislee 365ยบ Degrees paper pad Stamps: Verve Stamps Birthday Surprise and Black Tie Birdies Ink: Memento Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Cuttlebug, Ranger's glossy accents and chalk.
Thanks for looking.
