Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop


Can you believe that Verve is celebrating 3 fabulous years already?!  I can't!  So, we're celebrating with a Blog Hop!  What's exciting about the hop is that you can win the set that each Verve Diva used on their creation just by leaving a comment on their post before 11:59pm on Wed. 8/4!!  One lucky person who signed up and participated in our official blog hop wins a $100 Verve gift certificate!

The hop started with Julee, so if you didn't start there you'll want to head back so as not to miss a chance to win!  If you came from Melissa's Blog, then you're in the right place!! 


I used the Happiness Found set for my card today.  You can win this set just by leaving a comment on this post!  I also used the Grace's Frame Cuttlebug folder on my card along with some adhesive pearls from Kaisercraft.  The sentiment was stamped using Summer Sunrise and Terra Cotta Tile ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Labels 10 Nestabilities.  A simple, but sweet card!


Next stop on the hop is Jennifer!!  I can't wait to see what she's created!  Happy Anni-VERVE-sary!!!

Here's the Master List in case you get lost along the way!
