I {heart} U - Anni-Verve-Sary Spotlight Hop

Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops! Hop along with the Divas all week long as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve on Friday night! One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.


Isn't that fun!? I am absolutely in love with the soon-to-be-released You and I stamp set and coordinating I Heart U dies used on this card. SO MANY possibilities. The You and I stamp set includes 18 stamps that just might be the most versatile in my entire stash! And I'm sure they will be some of the most-used (so just get used to seeing them!!). And those letter dies? I'm already hard at work on a campaign to convince Julee to release an entire stamp / die alpha in that amazing font! So everyone go ahead and join me in that OK? Maybe if we all start bugging her now we'll drive her crazy enough that she'll cave. :-) Anyway, I created this card to give to my son Dean as he starts kindergarten this week (eeek!). The papers are all printed digi papers from the Zoom Zoom kit by Zoe Pearn (Sweet Shoppe). Does that card sketch look familiar? It's the August Sketch For You To Try!!

Be sure to stop by all of the participating Diva blogs today and the rest of the week - it's my opinion that this is the best Verve release EVER!! (and the Spotlights started yesterday, so you might want to catch up if you missed those).

Sian Ridley said...

I totally agree - you can't have a 'u' and an 'i' without the rest of the alphabet, the other 24 letters will feel left out :) I love the glitter, gotta have some bling :)
