Verve May Spotlight Hop ~ Day 1

justbecausemaureenplut

Welcome to our May 2013 Spotlight Hops!  Today we're shining our Verve spotlights on the new stamps Take Note and Happy Graduation Plain Jane. Each of the release team Divas and Guest Divas below has posted her first look at these new stamps today. As you hop through the list below, you just might see some super sneaky peeks of new coordinating dies and ribbons, so keep your eyes peeled! Everything you see previewed along today's hop will be available in Verve's online store on Friday, May 10.

I don’t know where to start explaining the new Take Note set.  It’s FULL of words and phrases to make a ka-jillion happy sentiments.  I was in need of some more birthday cards so I picked out the “it’s your birthday” sentiment.  I added the “just” and “because” stamps to introduce the main sentiment then added the thatched arrow image (that fits the arrow die!) to make sure y’all don’t miss the lead in :)

Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win today's featured products! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines. I’m bringing up the rear of the blog hop so if you’ve missed any stops, check out the Master List below :)  Good luck!
