Surprise Blog Hop for Julee!!!

Surprise!!!!!! We're having a Birthday Blog Hop for Julee and want to THANK YOU for visiting all of our blogs today! As you all know, Julee is the owner of the most fabulous stamp company EVAH, Verve Stamps! Julee is just one of those girls you wish you lived next door to, so you could run over to her house whenever your mojo is hiding and watch her create! I have never seen anything less than STUNNING that she's created. She's also probably one of the sweetest, kindest people I've ever known. She does so much for us Diva's and just by giving me the opportunity to work with her stamps and the rest of the Diva's is more than I could ever ask for! So thanks Julee, for EVERYTHING and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SWEET GIRL!!!!!

I made a couple frames for my friend today using the Andrea Victoria paper by MME and had some leftover stuff on my desk. I just love the colors in this paper pack and wanted to create a card for Julee using these papers! The small flourishes on the bottom of the card are from Kindred Spirits, the frame on the label die (from PTI) is from Thankful Accents, and the sentiment is from Birthday Surprise!


I think my favorite part of the card is the dangly jewel! It's from 7Gypsies. I hoard these things like I own the last package ever to be manufactured, ha!

Your next stop on the Birthday Blog Hop for Julee is the fabulous Tosha!

If for some reason one of the links on the hop doesn't work for you, refer to the master thread on the Verve Blog to get you on your way!

Thanks for hopping with us today!!!

**A BIIIIG thank you to Jen Tapler for designing our blog hop graphic! Isn't she the BOMB DIGGITY?!?**
