Anni-Verve-sary Spotlight Hop ~ Day 1

day1withlove

Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  As many of you know, Verve is celebrating its 5th anniversary this month and the party is just getting started! If you’ve arrived from Laurie S.’s blog, you are right on track…if not, you can check the master list over on the Verve Blog to make sure you don’t miss anyone!

On my card today, I’ve used a sentiment and image from the With Love stamp set.  This set is a collection of stamps that have been those sweet little gifts you always receive when you order from Verve.  Don’t have them all?  Well now you can!  I’m also sneaking in a new Plain Jane, Thatched Banner, that coordinates with our popular Ribbon Banner Die!  It adds just the right texture in any colour you like! LOVE!

Come join us over the next 9 days as we showcase the 23 new stamps and dies releasing from Verve! We'll be counting down the minutes and revealing all the new sets in our forum from 9-11pm Eastern on Friday, August 24, so make plans now to join us for our release party!

In the meantime, we've got a fun filled hop for you today! So let your fingers do the clicking and peek into the creative minds of Verve's talented Divas and Guest Divas as they give you a little tour of what's to come! Inspiration abounds, and so do the PRIZES!

That's right! We've picked a mystery blog from today's hop and hidden a prize! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list. We’ll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured sets and dies. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.

Want even more chances to win? Head on over to the Verve SCS forum and play along in our Anni-VERVE-sary release challenges. Or hop on over to the Verve Blog to find out about our Verve Card Carnival, for a chance to win the entire new release (a $300+ value)!  Now before you head over to Teresa’s blog, here’s one more sneaky peek on the card I made for today’s CAS Challenge over on the Verve SCS Forum. Thanks for visiting! See you tomorrow :)

Awesome banner card! I remember that circle card from CASE Study~so cool. ;)

Very cool. I like that grungy kraft background. And it's conservatively sweet without overdoing the embellishing, so you could still get away with giving it to your honey.
