Verve New Release Spotlights ~ Day One

hopemar2011

Hi Verve fans! Are you ready to see some new Verve?  The first card up is showing off the new Hope Perches Plain Jane.  I love sentiments for bird images and this one fits the bill perfectly (no pun intended!! (lol)  My second card uses stamps from the Lucky Ducky set.  I could not get “lol” out of my head when looking at this set, so I added it to my card!! LOL
