December Birthday...Verve November Diva Dare: Shape Up

Happy Thanksgiving Eve to my US visitors, and Happy Wednesday evening to everyone, in general.

Because I know so many of you are busy preparing for Thanksgiving celebrations, I'll pop in...and out...with a quick post and share.  Kind of a 'craft and dash'..

My mother-in-law's birthday is in December, so I decided to create a birthday card with some Christmas flavour, just to see...

This one is heading to Verve November Diva Dare: Shape Up challenge, where we're invited to create a card using a "common" shape: squares, circles, hearts, stars...So many possibilities, and if you check out the entries, as well as the Diva's cards shared over the past several days, you will be 'wow-ed,' guaranteed!.

My sketch inspiration is from Mojo Monday #320, that I missed playing with when it was 'live' but that's okay: it's timeless.


Verve hearts, banner and sentiment...

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visits and comments brighten my day!
