Verve Project Parade

I am squeaking in at the last minute for the Verve Project Parade.  When I read about the challenge, I was intrigued and knew exactly which stamps I wanted to use.  Although I love winter, I am a sunny kind of girl.  KWIM?  I wanted to make something for my husband as he has basically nothing in his office.  No seriously.  He has two pictures (one of each child) on this huge, beautiful bookcase.  So, I wanted to cheer it up a little, and I think he is going to love it.  That is the kind of husband I have - I know - so lucky!  :)

Here are my projects all together and close ups to follow.


How fun is this?  Right!  I just love all of these together.  I think it makes it more fun and more special when you know what you have created is going to bring someone you love so much "sunshine".

Here is a close up of the card.  I created the background paper by stamping and coloring the sunshine.  Then I had to add some polka dots because what is a card without them?

This is the altered canvas that I made for him.  I can see this sitting on his bookcase already.

This is just the bag.  I stamped the sun on the front but the polka dots go all around the bag.

I wanted to show you a close up of the tag and sunshine on the bag.  Do you see the sparkles?  I couldn't  make a cream colored bag look right and trust me that there are no Harvest Gold or Smokey Shadow ones to be found.  So, I made do with the kraft color.

Thanks for looking at all of my projects.  I had a blast!

Wow!! What a great project!! I love them all and think it is such a fun idea to add them to your husband's bookcase. You'll have to take a picture of it there!! Great job (and I love the yellow!!!)
