Viva la Verve January week 2

Good afternoon crafty friends and happy Monday! I hope you all had a
great weekend and your weeks are off to a great start! Hopefully
snow and sickness will start moving out of the country soon! We don't have
any snow currently in OK but it seems all of my friends have sick kids.
My husband and I do a Monday night Bible study with some family and friends
and I think we've had one in the last five weeks due to sickness. Tonight
we are going to try to do one via Google hangouts since everyone has cameras
on the computers. Hopefully it works out! It's been sad not being able to get together.

I have a card that I wanted to share today. I followed the 
January week 2 sketch from Viva la Verve.

Viva la Verve January week 1

Good evening my crafty friends!! Wow I have been MIA for far too long! 
I feel I should explain myself.... Morning sickness aka all day sickness is for the birds!
On a bright note, we will hopefully have a healthy and happy Baby Boy in May!
His name is going to be Elias which is a version of Elisha or Elijah and it means 
Jehovah is God or Jehovah is our God. So anyways I had a very trying first
trimester and it took everything I had to get out of bed and go to work. Since then,
the past couple weeks have been better. Still tired as all get out, but I am finally starting
to want to get my mojo and motivation back for crafting!!

So here is my first card in about a month! I followed the January week 1
sketch from Viva la Verve. I loved what Lesley had done with her flowers 
Here, so I decided to give it a try with my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.
