We're celebrating 3 Fabulous years of Verve with a very special Blog Hop today!! Things kicked off this morning over on Julee's Blog, so if you just happened along you may want to head on over there and start at the beginning. If you arrived here from Amber's Blog, then you're on the right track! You can find a list of all the participants in the Hop HERE in case you get lost along the way somewhere. ;-)
There are tons of prizes along the way, with each of the Verve Divas giving away at least one Verve Stamp set, so be sure to leave some love in the comments for all of the stampers as you hop along! All the prize details can be found in the first stop on the hop. You've got until 11:59pm on Wednesday, August 4 to comment for a chance to win, so happy hopping!
I decided to create a fun hybrid card today using one of my favorite Verve sets, Relax, and some printed digi paper from the Life's a Beach kit by Shawna Clingerman, Melissa Bennett and Libby Weifenbach (Sweet Shoppe):
I just love those bright colors with the gray and kraft! I added some black sand from Waianapanapa near Hana on the East coast of Maui to the bottom of the card, which I personally thought was the perfect finishing touch! I love that little bit of texture and the black sand matched perfectly with the colors on the card.
Don't you just love that Relax set? How'd you like a chance to win it? Just leave a comment here on this post by 11:59 pm Wednesday, Aug 4 and you'll be entered to win the set!! And don't forget to check out the rest of the Divas' posts along the hop for more chances to win other fabulous Verve prizes!!
