We LOVE Verve Release Time TODAY



I know you all love Verve releases and today is one of them. Yea! You've seen this set back in November during a special Thanksgiving sale, but now anyone can hop on over to the Verve shop and purchase it. There is just to many sweet sentiments in this set that it was hard to pick one for my first card. So you'll be seeing a few of them from me today.

A little bedazzle-y and zentangle-y on my first card. I love the little hearts on this set. The embossing powder covers the fun patterns Julee designed in them, but I bet you've seen them somewhere on the hop today!


It's {heart} flowers! Woo-hoo! This set is so much fun! Okay, here's the flowers tucked into a ticket and oh-oh-oh! Seam binding that is available from Verve!

    Your cards are super!! Thank you for inspiring me today!! Thank you for sharing your love for crafting through the NO Matter What release by Verve Stamps:) AND thank you for being you!! I sensed the Lord wanted me to go look up the meaning of your name so I did. In case you didn't know or that it needs some reiterations---the meaning of your name Janelle is: "God is gracious" and this is so near and dear to me at this time---I hope to hear how His grace is so very sufficient for you!! Huge hugs and thanks again! be blessed
