AnniVERVEsary Spotlights---RELEASE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

First of all, I want to say a GINORMOUS thank you to all of you for your sweet words of concern about my dental emergency:) I had a root canal and crown done a few months ago and yesterday it was THROBBING so bad I was in tears! So I called my dentist after work and she had me come in even though she was ready to close. She thought I may need more endo work, so she took my crown off and turns out that the crown was just too big and it was causing pain due to pushing other teeth around or something. So anyway, they did another temporary and I'm getting a new crown! Thank goodness I didn't need more endo though, that's pain, haha!!!

Well ladies, here we are...RELEASE DAY!! 


Do you have your wishlists written down? You ready to storm the store when the sets go live? You ready to party like it's August 24th 2012??? Me too!!!

Today we're shining the Verve spotlight on the last set of the release, Treasured Words!!


Sorry about the picture, I messed with the settings and now I can't get it back to how it was, lol!! I used Amy's Viva la Verve! sketch for this week for the layout and kept the card pretty CAS, for me:)
I stamped the sentiment from Treasured Words on the circle. I cut two rectangles with my Rounded Rectangle die and then stamped the frame from Treasured Words and cut off the ends. I stuck them down behind the floral paper so they're kind of peeking out, I think it looks fun:) You can also see a bit of the Pennant Trim die peeking out under the ribbon:)
You'll love this set, along with all the rest! 
Can't wait to see you guys at the party tonight!! Be there or be SQUARE!

I'm so glad you're feeling better, there's nothing worse than pain in your mouth is there? You just can't get away from it. Good news that it was something that was relatively simple to rectify too :)

You're card is so sweet! Those little rectangle poking out from behind the floral paper are cute, it's like their being mischievous :) I'm glad there's another birthday sentiment in the set - you can never have enough variations of happy birthday :)
