Verve Spring New Release Spotlight - Day 2


Spotlight Day 2 has arrived and we're giving out some peeks for the Egg-stra Special set and the Charming Banner and Charming Oval dies.  I've got a sweet little hunter gathering up some eggs to bring home the fabulous sentiments in this set. Seriously, how perfect is that sentiment! He is most certainly having an EGG - CELLENT adventure filling his basket with eggs. Those darling little eggs can be cut out with one of the dies in the Charming Oval set. Very cool indeedy!

There is A PRIZE hidden along the hop! One lucky commenter on one of the Diva Hop Spots below will receive Egg-stra Special, Charming Banner Die Set and Charming Oval Die Set!! Deadline for commenting is 6PM Mountain on Friday, March 25. Winners will be announced during the ReLeAsE pArTy that night from 9-11pm Eastern!


Here's the master hop list in case there's a snafu along the way. Have a great day!
