Verve Turns Three!



Welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop! Verve turns three today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! If you've already been hopping along, you arrived here from Jamie N's blog. If not, head on over to Julee's Blog (owner of Verve), for all the info on how to win prizes (after all, what's a party without presents?), and to start hopping from the beginning. If there's a hiccup along the hop, you can always head to the Master Hop List to get the full list of links.


My Vervalicious card uses some of SU's new Newsprint DP - love the cream and black together - it's perfect to add just a pop of color in the flowers! The flowers & leaves were stamped on DP by My Mind's Eye, cut out, sponged with Riding Hood Red & popped with dimensionals. The rickrack die is a new toy from Die-namics. I cut the sentiment tag using an old decorative scissors from SU (remember the day when we just had to have all those different scissors...this is about the only one I continue to pick up from time to time).
STAMPS: Big Wish (Verve), Feel the Sun (Verve)
PAPER: Vintage Cream (PTI), Photo Mat Pink (My Mind's Eye Home), Black
INK: Versafine Onyx Black, Riding Hood Red
ACCESSORIES: CB, Die-namics Rickrack die, Kaiser black pearls, Red cording, Decorative scissors (? name) from SU, Sponge

Thanks for hopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Mercy Kerin’s blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness.
