Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop ~ Release Day!


Welcome back to the fourth and final day of our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! 2 beautiful new sets, 3 die sets and a sequin mix just released and they're all available to order right now. To celebrate our new release, we're putting on another blog hop!  If you've arrived from Stacey's blog, you are right on track!

Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!

Remember I told you I would show you the positive die cut of this Great Kindness flower on Friday?  Well, here it is!  I created this embossing paste background at the same time as Wednesday's card because I didn't want to waste any of that gorgeous pink paste!  A little goes a long way :)  The positive die cut of the flower was still on my work space so I threw it on the background and added a smaller vellum flower (embossed in white).  I die cut 4 "kindness" words, 3 in pink and one in silver and added part of one of the sentiments from the Kindness Matters set.  Now head over to Lesley's blog  for more inspiration!

Want to win some shiny new Verve? Today's prize is a BIG one. We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win our ENTIRE new release! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog today for the full hop list and all the prize info and deadlines!
