Verve Holiday Release ~ Day 4

HolidayGreetingvlvnov2

Good morning and TGIF!!  It’s our final day of the Verve Holiday Release Spotlights which means there’s a party tonight on our SCS Forum at 9:00 PM (EST), 6:00 PM (PST/Moe time)!  It’s also a new month of Viva La Verve sketches so I’ve used Diva Amber’s sweet sketch as my inspiration for today’s sneak peek.

Our last set is a fun and whimsical set loaded with holiday images and sentiments.  I’ve used one of the SEVEN sentiments that fits perfectly  into the mini bookplate die released last August AND its coordinating frame image from the Borderline set.  I’ve also used one of the TWO snowflake images to stamp lightly over my sentiment and a bit bolder on the oval shape.
