Viva La Verve With Psalm 94:18

VLV Jan14 Wk 5 photo VLVJan14Wk5picA.jpg

Five Friday's in January means five VLV sketches for this month - whoo hoo!  This week's sketch is brought to us by Diva Charmaine and there is lots of room for interpretation.

I wanted to make a card for a friend whose husband has cancer in his sinus cavity (thankfully it is not in his brain!) and this Psalm 94:18 Plain Jane was perfect for the situation.  The surgery was successful and now it is on to chemo etc. so they have a bit to go yet, but I know this verse will encourage them.

Since my In Bloom MME paper pack was at the top of my stack, it provided the papers for my card along with some pops of red to add a bit of colour.  Used some seam binding from the Spring Fling Ribbon Collection and two of my favorite dies: Flutterby and Elegant Leaves.        

You don't have to complete all the sketches to entered to win the $100 Verve Stamps gift certificate, but the more you enter the more chances you have of winning, and having been a past winner, let me tell you it is a whole lot of fun spending it :) 

Enjoy the sketch and good luck to those how have entered!
