Viva La Verve October 2014 Week 2 Recap and Viewfinder

Good morning!  

Anya popping in today to share this week's Recap and Viewfinder for the October 2014 week 2 sketch created by Diva Stacey.  Its a fun and playful sketch for this week!

This is the second of five sketch challenges in October .. play along with us and link each of your challenge creations to our Entry Form link list.

The link list will be up for the whole month and we'll choose a random winner at the end of the month to win a $100 gift voucher to Verve. Challenge rules can be found on the Rules tab at the top of the blog or by clicking here. You don't have to complete all of the sketches to win, but the more cards you enter, the greater your odds of winning are. Verve stamps are not required to play, but we do love to see 'em!

Here is the Week 2 sketch.

Here is my sample using this week's sketch. 

 I used the Small Packages stamp set and Pennant Trim die

And here are a few cards from the gallery that caught my eye.

 This baby card from Lyn is the definition of precious!  The little details, like the heart bunting and the stitching, make this one really stand out!

 Kris' card, made for local servicemen will be a delight on Veteran's Day.  In addition to the patriotic red, white, and blue, Kris carries stars though her design from the stitched banner at the bottom to the bunting across the top.   

 And finally, Nancy's card of encouragement offers the wisdom of the Psalms to an injured college football player.  Not only did she put together a stellar design, but she did so in the school colors, too!
