Welcome to Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  Hop along with the Divas all week long as we share our first looks at a few of the new products releasing from Verve on Friday night!  One lucky commenter from each day's hop will win the sets and dies featured that day, so be sure and leave a little love in the Divasphere! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.



Welcome to DAY 6 of the Anni-Verve-sary Spotlight Hops!
Today I am featuring the Making a Statement stamp set, the Rounded Scallop Frame die, and Loopy Blooms dies sets.  I also used the Sunny Days stamp set and Leafy Sprigs die.    While playing around with the stamps sets this week and all the fabulous die cuts, I was totally blown away by all the little details.  Julee truly thought of everything.    I love the Loopy Blooms die that I used on my card layered to make a border.  This die comes with  two of the cutest leaves.  Those same little loopy leaves also cut out the adorable birdies that come in the Making a Statement stamp set.  Love it!  I just had to add those adorable birdies to my card perched on some sparkly die cut sprigs.  I finished with some buttons, a bow, a few gold pearls, and one of the fabulous sentiments that come in this set!   Happy *sigh*!


Next up on the hop is Lynda!  As always thanks so much for stopping by!
