Verve Spotlight Hop ~ Day 1

foryoumaureenplut

Welcome to our October 2013 Spotlight Hops!  We're so excited to preview Verve's newest stamp sets and dies with you! Over the next few days, the Divas will be shining their Verve spotlights on a different set each day, so stay tuned for a fun series of inspirational hops... and PRIZES, too! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store Friday night, 10/25.

Hello friends!  I’m so excited about today’s card!  Not only is it my kick off to some new Verve coming up on Friday, it was my card I gave to my son in honour of his new apartment :)  We were able to see his new digs a few weeks ago and brought this along with a GC to the food store he lives by and my favourite cookbook!  HA!  I love the new stamps in this release…many of them fit with some old favourites, including the Jotted Heart die!  Can we all say “L-O-V-E!”  How would you like to win today’s featured stamps and dies?  Leave a comment on each Diva’s blog and you could win!
