Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary blog hop!  Today is a VERY special day!  Not only is it Verve Stamps's 3 year anniversary, but it is also my 2 year anniversary as a Verve Diva!

Before I get to the hop and card details, I just want to take a moment to thank Julee, owner/designer extraordinaire of Verve, for allowing me to be a small part of the Verve family.  Julee, your stamps have never stopped inspiring me since the day I first laid eyes on them.  You have, in no small part, played an important roll in where I am today with my stamping career.  Thank you.

Now, on to my card!!  The flowers on my card uses the amazing set, One Person and the sentiment is from Blue Skies.  I stamped the flowers on the pattern paper, Garden Gala from Webster's Pages.  I added a touch of stickles in the center and sponged the edges. The cute navy ribbon is Wild Blueberry seam binding from Martha Stewart -a super fun $1 find from Big Lots!  I added a ton of my favorite green rhinestone color, Sweet Pea.  LOVE these!!

If you hopped to my blog from Tanya's blog, you are on the right path.  If not, you can head to Julee's blog to start at the beginning.  The master blog hop list can be found here.

Sooooo, would you like a chance to win the set One Person?  Well, just leave me a comment and one random commenter will win!  In fact, each Diva will be giving away the set they used in their cards to one lucky commenter.

And to help celebrate, Verve is having an Anni-VERVE-sary sale that runs August 1-14.  All Year 1 sets are 30% off, all Year 2 sets are 20%, and all Year 3 sets are 10% off . (Here’s the link to where you can find the sets by year).

So, without further ado, hop on over to JAMIE's blog for the next bit of Verve-y goodness!!
