Verve Birthday Phrases - Spotlight Day 1



Verve Release Week starts today! I'm ecstatic to be hanging out again and in great company with Melissa Hubert and Cresta Woodruf as April Guest Diva's.
 
There are four Spotlights sets on the hop and my CAS card and envelope set is using the fabulous Birthday Phrases stamps. Possibly the easiest set of cards I've evah made!


Here's some single shots to show off each sentiment... because they are awesome!










We're going to be hopping today through Friday and because Verve likes to share, there is a prize hidden on one of the hops today and each hop day this week! Leave a shout-out in each Diva's comments box and you could have some free Verve all your own! It's all going to be revealed, the sets and dies too, on Friday night at the release party. Hope you'll join us!

Are you ready?
