Thankful Hearts Blog HOp!

Well it's about that time again, we're upon another fabulous release from Verve! This month, we're all about being thankful so we turned that feeling and the new release into a fun new Blog Hop for you! As you hop along the DT blogs, you'll be seeing peeks of all the new sets, as well as some old ones, so start at Julee's blog and hop your way through the list! If you've landed on me, you probably already know I'm the last one! So thank you for making it all the way to my little blog:) I've been waiting for you!
My whole card centered around the sentiment from "Heartfelt Thanks" , I love the "you touched my heart" sentiment! I kinda went with it, and it looks alot like a valentine, lol! It's okay though, I like it:) The base is a piece of Rich Razzleberry cut out with the largest heart nestability. The Sweet Blush card was created by cutting a piece of cardstock 4.5x8.5 and scoring it at 4.25. I then lined the regular heart nestability so they TOP of the DIE was JUST ABOVE the top edge of the score I created, this way, it didn't cut all the way through, I just got a nice cute little heart shaped card:)
I stamped the heart border from Hundred Hearts in Espresso (MOmento) and then added some cute little heart shaped rhinestones. I added a thin strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and stitched it down. Then I tied some swirly ribbon and added the cut-out heart (From Hundred Hearts also) and the sentiment! The "Thanks" sentiment is from Celebration of Thanks (LOVE THIS SET!) and I stamped some little hearts from Hearts on Fire behind it.
Well, that's about it for this post! I hope you enjoyed the blog hop! We had so much fun creating for you:)
Now you can head on over to the Verve Blog to finish some fun challenges or to the Verve Store for some SHOPPING! Decisions, decisions...
