Verve Winter Release Spotlights -Day 1

Hi everyone!  This is such a happy week for me.  It's Verve's Winter release week!!  Each day we will be spotlighting new sets that will be released on Friday.  There WILL be a release party for this release on Verve forum on SCS.  The fun starts at 6pm Pacific, I'll be getting the family take-out dinner and will be ready to party!  Hope to see you there.

Today we are spotlighting the Plain Janes and the mini sets in the release.
The Plain Janes are: Christmas Blessings and JOY to the World
The mini sets are: Winter Mittens (a cute set based on the freebie digi download from last year's Christmas release) and Friendly Phrases, Holiday Phrases and Munchkin Phrases these 3 sets have 5 cute sentiments in them!

My card uses the set, Winter Mittens.  I pieced the mittens with designer paper from KaiserCraft 6x6 Be Merry collection which was also used for the layers.  I stamped the sentiment directly on the card base.  I love this layout because you can totally use up those designer paper scrap strips that you get from cutting the 6x6 down to fit on a card! 

Here is a list of the Divas who have Spotlight samples to share today.  As usual, one lucky random commenter will be winning all the stamps spotlighted today!

Happy hopping!
