Viva la Verve September Week 1 Sketch

Welcome to our first Viva la Verve sketch of September!

Thanks so much for playing along and sharing all your fabulous cards in August! I announced our August Viva la Diva last night, so scroll down or click here to view our winner announcement to see if you're this month's lucky Viva la Diva! If not, play along this month for another chance!

We'll have 4 September challenges... 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. Verve stamps are not required to play, but we do love to see 'em!  We'll also be highlighting a couple of our favorite link-ups each Tuesday, so be sure to get your links in if you're crafting over the weekend.

Here is the Week 1 sketch....

Here's my sample using the newly back in stock Poppy Birthday set.

I've had sick kiddos the past few weeks and this first sketch of the month snuck up on me.  No extra inspiration from the Divas since they got the sketch pretty late in the game this week.  Hope y'all will play along though!  I love to see what you create!

If you're in the mood for a deal this long weekend, we've extended our Anni-VERVE-sary Sale through September 7, and all stamps, dies and embellishments are 10 - 50% off!
