Viva La Verve November Sketch 1 Recap and Viewfinder

Hello, Verve fans, Marisa here, recapping Julee's sketch.  But before we get to that, please take a moment to think about and thank those who have served our countries, many at the cost of their lives, to grant us our freedom.  To those of you who have served, thank you!!

It's a brand new month and we'll have 2 November challenges... play along with us and link your challenge creations to our Entry Form link list for a chance to win. 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 VerveWe'll also be highlighting a couple of our favorite link-ups next Friday, so be sure to come back and link up! 

With three newly released Christmas sets, it was an easy decision what to use for the sketch.  I decided on Jolly  Jingles and the Winter Friends die set.   "Hung my stockings" off some gold cording, added some gold half pearls to the stockings to give them a bit of sparkle, and looped my ribbon and added a button for some interest.  Finished things off by using a double sentiment. 

Here is the first November sketch
