Bloom and Grow - Spotlight Day 2


It's time to spotlight another stamp set AND more dies! Yay!!!!!!!!! First, lets talk about some deets for this week Spotlights and Release Party...

Four days of hops and we are on No. 2, and that means half-way to...
Release Party, Friday night, April 15!!!
9PM Eastern, 8PM Central, 7PM Mountain, 6PM Pacific, 3PM Hawaii
See the reveal of 3 new sets, 4 micro sets, 2 plain janes and 2 new dies. The prize winner's will be announced too! (Just for those dropping in today, there's a prize hidden along the hop today. Just comment as you go and you just might be the next owner of some new Verve!)

Today's sneak peek is an amazing flower set called Bloom and Grow. I so love this set. It has some amazing flower silhouettes and in perfect Verve style they layer, and they coordinate with the Floral Circles Die set. So my affection for leaves has tripled with the stamps AND coordinating Elegant Leaves die from today's sneak peek. Oh my stars! Just a fabulous and exciting duo.



The oval frame I used is one of my favorites from Verve's Dad's Day set that I used to complement the Thanks A Bunch sentiment also in the Bloom and Grow set.


Let's keep on a hopping, shall we?
