Believe Blog Hop!

If you didn't notice, I'm late on the blog hop train, I'm SO SORRY to the rest of the divas for breaking the chain, I don't know why but I had it in my head that this hop was NEXT saturday! I'm such a dope:)


Anyways, welcome to the Verve Believe Blog Hop! Today we’re hopping for the Cure, sharing projects from a new set Verve released last night 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.
For my project, I wanted to go with a sunny, uplifting card! The flowers in this set are really fun to color and I love the flourishy stems:) This set has a number of wonderful, uplifting sentiments that you'll be able to use for many different occassions. My card base is Orange zest. I stamped the smaller flower and stems directly on the card and then stamped, colored, and cut out the larger flower to pop it up off the card, I added an orange zest button and some jute too for some extra fun:) The green grass is torn Coredinations paper.

Thanks for hopping by! Next up on the hop is Sankari! 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! We'll be picking a random winner on Tuesday morning. And just in case Blogger decides not to play nice and post the pre-scheduled posts the girls have prepared, here's the master list so you can keep on hopping.
