Viva la Verve January 2016 Sketch 1

Welcome to our first Viva la Verve sketch of January!

It's a brand new year and we've got a few exciting changes to Viva la Verve to announce. We're simplifying things a bit and switching to a 2 sketch per month schedule.  Life seems to be going at turbo speed these days and a slower pace sounds pretty exciting to me!  {grin}

We'll draw TWO winners at the end of each month.  
Winners will receive a $40 gift voucher to the Verve Store.

Here's what the new schedule looks like:

1st Friday: Sketch 1
2nd Friday: Recap of Sketch 1
3rd Friday: Sketch 2 posted
4th Friday: Recap of Sketch 2
5th Friday: Winners posted
(if a month only has 4 Fridays, winners will be posted on the 1st Friday of the following month)

Other than that all the same RULES apply.  Feel free to link up as often as you like. Verve Stamps are not required, but we do LOVE to see them! :)

We'll have 2 January challenges... play along with us and link your challenge creations to our Entry Form link list. The link list will be up for the whole month and we'll choose TWO random winners at the end of the month to win a $40 gift voucher to Verve. We'll also be highlighting a couple of our favorite link-ups next Friday, so be sure to come back and link up!

Here is the Week 1 sketch....

Here's my sample card...

by Julee Tilman using Let it Be, Petal Points Die Set and Sprightly Sprigs Die Set

Can't wait to see what you create!

And if you're not all shopped out from the holidays, there are still a few more days left in our Good Buy 2015 sale! All stamps & dies are 40% off through January 4!
