Verve New Release Spotlight ~ Day 5

Greetings Verve fans!!!  Are you ready for another feast?  Today we're looking at 2 more fabulous sets being released this Friday, Kind Words and Happy Hello.  My first card uses the beautiful Mother Teresa quote, "Kind Words."  Can this font be anymore delicious?  I think one of the main reasons I love Julee's stamps is I love a good quote.  We make cards to convey messages to the people we care about...words are powerful and Verve always has just the right sentiment or greeting for any occasion.  This set is FULL of gorgeous sentiments and a flower silhouette.  Up next is Happy Hello
Many of you know that I'm changing schools this September.  I always like to make a good first impression with my staff...especially the secretary and custodians (really, don't they run the school?).  I also want to give my grade colleagues a little treat to start the year.  I made these cute little treat bags with tags, using the little "Hello" sentiments in this set.
There are 3 cute little phrases you can use with the "hello..."  I used each one for each of the tags.  The tags are the Labels 11 die and I've punched holes in the scallops for some added interest.  
So what's in the bags?  Well, some of my favourite treats...hot chocolate, VIA coffee packs, flavoured water packs, a chocolate bar, Sharpies, post-it notes in bright colours, funky clips, stickers, and a little bag of licorice all sorts (I eat those while writing report cards!! LOL).  I think I need to make myself one of these bags!!! LOL   Okay, how about some more treats?  Hop over and see what these Divas have in store today...everyone is pulling out all the stops on this release....I LOVE IT!!!!  Be sure to leave a comment for the chance to win these sets and come back tomorrow for the last set spotlight...then it's Friday...PARTY NIGHT!!!  Check out the deets HERE on the Forum.

Your card in blue and white reminded me of Mother Theresa (she was often pictured in a white gown with blue veil), and it is such a beautiful quote.
Then, the bags!! Can I work at your school?? I'd just come and clean your classroom, and help grade papers, and clean up glue for one of those bags. Makes me want to go get some cute school supplies!
