Verve Sneak Peek ~ Day 2

Hello friends!!!  What did you think about all the fabulous samples yesterday with Love Story?  Well hold on to your keyboards, because it just gets better...Today we are peeking at 2 new Anni-VERVE-sary sets Framed Wishes and Fabulous You.  They both have a frame stamp with similar flourishes, but one has more of an Asian feel to it.... 
I picked up some of this luscious Webster's Bloomers trim and paper on my solo road trip last week.  I just love the black and cream and pop of teal...yummy :)  This trim is easier to work with than I thought when I first saw it in blogland.  This sentiment is also in this set...I love the mix of fonts :)
This second card uses the frame in Fabulous You and one of the sets' many sentiments.  It was hard to chose one so I settled on one that makes me think of the Divas :)  What I love about this set is that there are a couple of different corner flourishes that can be used anywhere...I've used them on the inner corners of the frame...can you tell?  I can't!!! LOL...they look like they are part of the frame!!! You could even ink them in a different colour...so cool :)

Ready to see some more eye candy?  These Divas also have more peeks or head over to the Verve Blog to get started :)  And don't forget to mark Friday, August 20th on your calendars...we will be party-ing it up in the Verve Forum :)
