Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop. Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you’ve just happened along, be sure to hop on over there to start from the beginning! And to make this party a real shindig, there’s a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky commenter on that blog will win Verve’s entire August release! But of course, it wouldn’t be a mystery if you knew which blog, would it? So if you’re feeling the love, give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy! Here's my creation...

I knew I wanted to use Kindred Spirits again and make a crumpled flower. Adding stitching just makes everything look better...kind of like embossing...just adds another texture. This is my first blog hop, one of the reasons why I started this blog. I have met so many wonderful talented and helpful people. It's been a fabulous experience so far! Here's a close up...

Like the sentiment says, my life is richly blessed by Julee and everyone in the stamping blog world. Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Siobhan's blog for a little more Verve-y goodness. Viva La Verve!!

Recipe:

Stamps:Verve's Kindred Spirits, Thankful Blossoms; SU french script (on flower)

Paper: PTI summer sunrise, raspberry fizz; SU old olive, kraft, choc chip, vanilla; embossed white and brown fibre (craft supply)


Ink: Versamark; SU choc chip

Accessories: stitching, PTI satin ribbon; button; linen thread; MS butterfly punch; silver pearls; nestabilites blossom dies
