Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop

If you are here for the Sassy Studio Designs Release Blog Hop, please scroll down to the next post.


Happy 3rd Anni-VERVE-sary to Verve! Welcome to the blog hop to celebrate. If you arrived from Angela's blog you are on the right track. If not, why don't you start at the beginning, Julee's blog (the owner of Verve). She has some important info regarding prizes, so you don't want to miss out! If you get lost any time along the way, you can refer to the Blog Hop Master List.



I love all my Verve stamps (and there are a lot to love in my collection, LOL)! But, I always say that no other company does sentiments as well as Verve, so I decided to use a sentiment as the focus of my card today. This one is from the Believe set. $10 from each sale of this set goes to the Susan G. Komen search for the cure. How cool is that? Such a powerful and lovely message here, this is one of my favorites! I used one of my favorite older MoJo Monday sketches for the layout (#103).

Happy Anni-VERVE-sary Julee and Verve! Wishing you continued success and many more Anni-VERVE-saries in the years to come!

Thanks so much for hopping along today! Your next stop is Cheri's blog.

Card Recipe:
Ink: Baja Breeze, Rose Red
