May Peace, Joy & Love Be Yours

Happy Monday!  It's a short work week here...so it's really Wednesday in my book!  My new Verve arrived so fast last week. I won the whole release on Monday and it arrived on Wednesday.  Talk about customer service. I love Verve!  Their shipping is unbelievably fast.   So, of course, I couldn't wait to ink up my new stamps!  I decided to try and get all of the Viva la Verve Sketch Challenges done for this month...so here is #3.  I'm also entering this in along with the Buttons Galore & More Challenge.  Always can use a few buttons to spruce up your cards!
And before I sign off today, I wanted to share one more picture from Jonathon's birthday dinner last night.  I love both Jonathon and Marcel's expressions in this picture!  We had to keep Marcel from dipping his fingers in the icing early!

What a stunning card! Oh my!
And your boys, that just makes me giggle out loud to think of what they are both saying/thinking.

oh, my that cake looks yummy!! Who was saying what for the boys to look like that? I know that island...a great place to stand around and make a toast with wine ;) And there you go again, inking up new stamps so quickly :) I love it! I'm thinking this is for me 'cause it has buttons and bling and a fabulous ribbon...for the 13th day of Maureen's Christmas cards ;)
