At home with Verve

This year for our Viva la Verve challenges, we're shaking things up a bit! Last year (I can't believe 2009 is LAST year!) we had weekly twists along with the sketches but this year we're going a different direction. I'll be posting three inspiration photo's to use along with the weekly sketch.
The inspiration photos will be following our theme "At Home with Verve: A year long home walk-through"
Each month we'll walk through a different room and each week during that month, I'll post inspriation photos of that particular room or items you might find in that room. These photos are to be used in any way that inspires you. We're not laying down any crazy rules this year, lol! If you see a color combo you like in the picture, go for it! If you see some fun, fuzzy texture you like, DO IT! We want you to have fun and see where the inspiration takes you:)
The first week's sketch challenge is up over at the Verve forums at SCS!We're walking though Foyers and Entryways in January. I've posted the sketch here on the blog but see THIS THREAD for the inspiration photos to use with the sketch as well as any details I missed here, upload deadlines, and PRIZES!

Here's the sketch:
Here's my sample:

I used an old favorite set, Petals and Stems. I was inspired by the color combo and the sunflowers in the sunflower foyer picture!
Next up is Lori Tecler's awesome sample! If you'll remember, Lori won the VLV December Gallery last month and won a position as the Sample Diva this month! I'm looking forward to seeing all the fun cards she cranks out this month!
Lori used the super popular Thankful Hearts for her sample! Don't you LOvE that color combo? Lori was inspired by the colors in the Modern Floral photo. I love her inspired card, so perfecT!
Well hop on over to the VLVJan{10}01 thread in the Verve forums to play along with us! Verve stamps are NOT REQUIRED to play along and qualify for the monthly prize! We want EVERYONE to play along! Hope you have a HAPPY, HEALTHY, and BLESSED New Year!!!
See you next week,
