Viva la Verve- Week 2

The second week of July brought a new sketch with a new {twist}. This weeks {twist} was to use either the Poppin' Pastels technique or the Burned Batik. I chose Poppin' Pastels. I started with a piece of Basic Grey paper from the Wisteria pad that had a subtle pattern. I stamped a couple of the flowers from Miracles Blossom on it in Versamark and then went over them with some bright pink chalk. Added some more BG paper, this time from the Porcelain pad. Stamped my sentiment from Floral Symphony, cut it out added a ribbon border. A bit more pink ribbon, a Doodlebug Paper Frill, a white button and I was done. Schwoo! :)

And I'd like to tell everyone thanks for laughing at me yesterday! At least it all turned out ok. And for those of you who don't know what an earwig is- Wikipedia. Ewwww.

Also the boys had their Dr appt yesterday. For now Owen doesn't need to go to the ENT Specialist. Our pediatrician thinks that he didn't have 3 ear infections in 6 weeks like it seemed but rather had one long lasting one that the antibiotics weren't taking care of. So for now we wait. Until he gets another ear infection. And pray he doesn't. :) And Adam of course is perfect. Can I say that about my kid? LOL! He's totally healthy and we're very thankful!

I think that's all. I'm off to the store, lots of errands to run today!
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is fabulous!


Pin It!

Sorry to hear that your little guy isn't feeling well. Hope his ear infection clears up soon.
