March Viva La Verve #2

Just a quick post for my second Viva La Verve sketch challenge of the month.  I was inspired by the turquoise and red of this kitchen with black and white accents.  The background on the turquoise panel was an experiment using the lined portion of the argyle stamp from Key to My Heart (Practicing Crativity).  I really like how it came out with all those criss cross lines.  And it was so easy!!! I find making the true argyle print a little bit nerve racking. I'm such a perfectionist when it comes to making those line match up. The heart is from the Hundred Hearts Verve set and the sentiment is from SU! Simply Said set.  It was hard to find a sentiment that fit on that tiny panel.

Anyhow, I'm still not feeling well today and my hubby is home sick now too.  That's good thing for me because it was very nice to take a nap this morning to make it through the rest of my day.  Hopefully the kids will be in bed early again tonight.  Last night two of them were asleep by 5:30 pm!  

Hope you are all doing well and looking forward to the weekend.  I'm just praying for a healthy one.  I've been stuck at home since Saturday and it sure would be nice to get out of the house...even if it is for the groceries.

Paper:  Black and White cs, Tempting Turquoise, Summer picnic dp (SU!)
Ink:  Basic Black, Real Red
Accessories:  Real Red Satin Ribbon
Stamps: Key to My Heart (Practicing Creativity), Hundred Hearts (Verve), Simply Said (SU!)
