We'll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured stamps. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.

Welcome back to the last day of our sneak peeks! I bet you're SOOO excited to get your hands on these sets aren't you? I can't wait for you to get them either and FLOOD the interwebs with your gorgeous creations:)

So today we're peeking a fabulous new set called Holiday Greetings.


I stamped and embossed the large snowflakes in clear and white EP and then ran it through my big shot with a woodgrain embossing folder. The wreath and sentiment are also from this amazing set! I cut a large circle and then stamped the wreath on the circle, added another circle with the sentiment, and then added stickles to the berries, some buttons, and some fab gingham ribbon! I think this one is my favorite card of the release, the white, kraft, and red combo is so fun!

Amongst the excitement of the release, I almost forgot that today is a new Viva la Verve sketch! A new month and a new sketch:) This week is my week and here's our sketch!

And my card using more images from Holiday Greetings!

Again, the lighting sucks because this is taken with my phone and no amount of photo-shopping was going to help, ha!
I love this tree! There are a couple other trees in the set too, which you've probably seen while bouncing around the other blogs! The papers are from Basic Grey's Aspen Frost collection and the ribbon is from SU!
Come play along with us HERE IN THE FORUM!!

Okay, so now it's time to hop on to the next Diva and spread some more love:) Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you at the party tonite!!
