Verve Believe Blog Hop

Welcome to the Verve Believe Blog Hop. If you’ve just happened across my blog, you’ll want to start back at the beginning with Julee and hop your way along. Today we’re hopping for the Cure, sharing projects from a new set Verve just released called Believe. This set was designed in honor of breast cancer awareness and Verve is donating $10 from the sale of every Believe set to the Susan G Komen For the Cure foundation. We believe that we can make a difference. We believe that each day should be celebrated, each moment cherished and that every little thing we can do in the fight to find a cure matters.


I think this set is beautiful! It has such a touch of elegance for which Verve has become known. I wanted to use these flowers in a simple and soft way, so I embossed them in white on white cardstock and then sponged Blush Blossom and Mellow Moss ink over them. It gave it such a soft, subtle feel.


My second card is more frilly with ribbon and scallops. I LOVE this poem and how it is perfect for so many circumstances. Very uplifting.
Thanks for hopping by! Next up on the hop is Jackie.
Oh, and we’ve got a special gift hidden along our hop for one lucky commenter, so if you see something you really love, give a little shout out and you just might win a $30 gift certificate to Verve!
