Hugs and Kisses and the Smallest Things :)

Hello people!

I hope you are well :)

I am pleased to say that although I'm a little late uploading these, I have actually managed to keep up to date with the sketches at Viva La Verve this month - I hope it continues throughout the year!

Here are the beautiful sketches;

Week 3 by the marvellous Maureen Plut:

And week 4 by the fabulous Janelle Stollfus;

And here are my attempts to do justice to the Divas!

Week 3:

Week 4:

I'll be honest, neither of these turned out quite as I had imagined from my little brainstorm sketches, but hey, that's the fun of it right?!  I'm quite happy with how they ended up so not all is lost :)

  1. That threadwork is AMAZING! (I know there's a proper name for it, but it escapes me right now). And I love the pops of green on the second card. I love how cards often have minds of their own and don't always turn out the way we want - sometimes it goes in the bin and sometimes it's WONDERFUL!

  2. Great cards, but that string art is crazy good!!!
