"Perk Up", February Diva Dare
Howdy everyone! It's Jen here with day 10 of the February Diva Dare. This month's challenge is entitled "Perk Up".
What we're daring you to do this month is make a card or project to perk someone up, whether it’s with a warm beverage or just a heartfelt sentiment to brighten someone’s day. No shortage of options as Verve has some wonderful coffee and tea sets as well as a multitude of uplifting/heartfelt sentiments.
I started out with a very different card and then scrapped it for something much brighter and cheerier. I have been making a big effort to send out or deliver the cards that I make and I wanted to make this card for a colleague of mine who has recently made all the difference in how much I look forward to going to work. It's so nice to have a colleague that is not only inspiring to work with but genuinely a wonderful person that you want to be friends with so I made this card for her. :)
My card uses Brighter Days - such a gorgeous stamp set for this kind of card, I think. I pulled out an older paper pad from Pebbles that I just adore but I believe its now out of print. I also went back to my traditional inclusion of kraft and twine. :) The ribbon I used is from the Truly Madly Deeply Ribbon Collection and gives just the right pop of red to the card. :)
Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, February 26th. Entries must be posted 2/7 or later, include at least one Verve product, a warm beverage or heartfelt sentiment, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 2/26/14.
