Hope and Love - Verve Spotlight Day 4


It's been 4 fabulous days of sneak peeks and it's all wrapping up today! I'll get through the deets super fast, as my 3 year old son would say, so that you can get on a hopping through mine. 

Let's see.
  • Hop
  • Comment (each day has a hidden prize for the Spotlights featured that day... "FREE VERVE" ladies and gents)
  • PARTY 9pm Eastern, 8pm Central, 7pm Mountain, 6pm Pacific and 3pm Hawaii. (I personally think it's the best part of release week once the Spotlight Hops are over. *wink*)
Two cards to show for the spotlight stamps and die set today. The first has Proverbs 16:9 Plain Jane verse. Such an amazing verse.

The second card uses the flowers and one of the fantastic sentiments from today's Spotlight set Hope Blooms (another favorite from this release), but I couldn't leave it alone without adding a few leaf branches from the Bloom and Grow set.
Have a grand time on the rest of the hop! (If you've just found this post and want to know more just jump over to the Verve blog and get all the deets.) See ya at the party tonight!
