Happy Birthday to VERVE!!!!!!!!

Today, Verve Stamps turns 2 years old! In celebration, there are a whole bunch of us Verve lovers forming a blog hop using our favorite Verve stamps:) I don't think it's possible to pick a favorite, since they'er ALL so fantastic, but I did create a couple cards with some fun stamps that I love:)
This first card uses the sentiment from Sweet on You and the flowers are from Floral Whimsy. This card is also my submission for today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS! I had so much fun crusing the Heavenly Hostess website! I saw THIS image and was instantly inspired by the bright colors! Here's my first card!
Isnt' that bright and fun? I loved cutting all those yummy scallops with my Scalloped Scallop edger by EK Success! I just picked through my scraps and found colors that were fun and bright, I can't think off the top of my heard what the colors are...sorry!o
How would you like a sneaky peak of a NEW SET coming out THIS MONTH??? I bet you'd LOVE a peak!;) All along the hop today, Diva's will be sharing some new peaks so make sure you get ALL the way through the hop to see every sneaky peak you can! Here's a quick peak at a new set called "A Cup of Life"
How FANTASTICALLY VERVALICIOUS is this new set? Oooo, I love it so much:) Just like a nice cup of hot green tea:) The paper is Bella Rose by SU! It's one of my old favorites, it reminds me of an old parlor where you might even drink tea! :)

Well, you have LOTS of fabby blogs to hop through, so I'm going to quit chatting and send you on to ANJOU!!! If you're just happening upon my blog and are interested in all the Vervy-goodness that today has to offer, start out at the Verve Blog and hop on through! Enjoy the blog hop!
