Christmas Joy! Verve Blog Hop

Brand new Verve releases today and we're celebrating with a blog hop!  Hop along to each of the blogs below to see a little inspiration with the new stamps, then be sure to head on over to the Verve Store to check out Verve's Thanksgiving Sale (25% off all stamps & dies) that starts today! You should have come here from Julee's blog! If you haven't, it's not too late to turn around and head over there so you don't miss a THING!


We're release an adorable new mini set called Christmas Joy today, as well as a compilation of our beautiful Plain Jane scriptures. I've got a card to share today using Christmas Joy


I colored the little bird up and then cut him out. If you see little gray dots, he doesn't have chicken pox! I had planned this card a whole other way and had him in a snowy landscape, but it didn't work out, so I cut him out:) I created little snowy hills by tearing cardstock and then glittering the edges.


The ribbon is also from Verve, from the Stormy Skies collection.
Thanks for coming by to visit today! Your next stop is Andrea! Head on over and leave her some love!

Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win a $75 gift certifcate to Verve! Comment deadline for the prize drawing is Sunday, December 1.
