Happy Anniversary Verve!


Today is Verve Stamps third Anniversary and everyone from Divas to customers are making a Hop about it! There a total of 83 hops to take and each one is going to feature some extraordinary Verve style.

You've already been to Botanical Cafe with Chriss and her Verve-y goodness but if you're just joining in at my hop then why not get comfortable and start at the beginning with Julee, at Poetic Artistry where you'll get all the details and of course what's up for Anniversary prizes. If somewhere you get a hiccup in the hop go to the master blog hop list to get back to surfing the hop.

I love everything Verve and I'm so excited to be able to join in this hop to celebrate Julee and all her fabulous accomplishments with Verve Stamps. Happy Anniversary and wishes for many more fabulous years!



For my card I used one of the inspiration photos for Viva La Verve August Week 1. The base mat is a collage of Bountiful Backgrounds, handmade parallel lines and leave silhouettes. I stamped the leaves from Forever in our Hearts and the Leaves Plain Jane on the base mat and then stamped and cut out the smaller flower from Feel the Sun using my Prismacolor Markers to color them. The leaves were diecut with Stampin' Up Tiny Leaves die and Sissix Leaves Bigz Die where I added some dimension with a marker and colorless blender. I finished this anniversary card off with a sentiment from Anniversary Birds and a scrap piece of red organdy ribbon.

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