Verve After Party Blog Hop!

 myluckycharm

Welcome to our January 2012 After Party Hop!  Last night we released 3 new stamp sets, 4 plain janes and 4 dies!  All of the new products we've been showcasing this week are available now in the Verve store!

I was having a difficult time deciding which card I wanted to end with a bang on.  As this card started to form on my desk, I knew I had my After Party card.  This is one of those “pure joy” cards for me.  Maybe it’s that stamping these Lucky You shamrocks makes this St. Patty’s Day baby giddy with delight or maybe it’s  creating another tag card…whatever it was, all the stamping stars were aligned in the new studio :)  I wanted to show you that you can incorporate shamrocks at any time of year, not just in March.  If you have an Irish friend, I’m sure she (or he) would love a little touch o’ the Irish on a card you give them.  I sure would {wink!}.  I even found a little four leaf clover/flower button to add to my shamrocks, die cut from the Shamrock Die Set.  Once this card had been displayed for an appropriate, lengthy time on the mantle, I would be tempted to carefully take the tag part off and use it as a bookmark!!

Didn’t win anything last night or want to add to your winnings?  Feeling the Luck o’ the Irish?  Be sure to leave a little comment love as you take one last stroll through the Diva blogs. One lucky commenter from today's hop will win the ENTIRE Release! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.

What a fun card :) Love the bits of DP around the edges and how you pulled out the colours in the middle. I'm leaning more and more towards those shamrocks ;) Off to shovel the driveway - we actually got some snow - about 2 inches!! It's VERY wet so may wait, but they say may get more tonite so better safe than sorry. Have a great weekend :)
