Lunch Notes



Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, on the Verve blog, the design team is showing previews of four new sets that Verve will be releasing on Wednesday, June 25! I'm so excited about the sets this month!! As soon as I saw the sentiments in All About You, I kept thinking how perfect they all are for little notes of appreciation you might tuck into a spouse's packed lunch, or slip into the suitcase of a loved one who's traveling, or even leave behind on a pillow if you're the one traveling. I created this mini lunch box tin and card ensemble with my sweet mom in mind, who, if you can believe, has been packing my dad's lunch almost every workday for 45 years now!! (Like mother, NOT like daughter, but I gotta say I admire her for it!)

Here are close-ups of five of the lunch notes:











Of course the inside is decorated to match:



The cards are slightly larger than ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), and, like ATCs, they are card fronts only. That leaves plenty of room in the tin for a half-dozen or so additional "lunch notes." Perfect, since tomorrow the Verve divas will preview a set with loads more fun sentiments that will also work with this theme! Tune in to the Verve blog tomorrow, and you'll see right away why I had to save room!

Now, your reward if you're still with me ... each day on the Verve blog, you'll have a chance to win that day's previewed set or sets. All you have to do is leave a comment answering that day's question. So if you missed yesterday's post, leave a comment there first, then go to today's, and last, tune in again tomorrow. Deadline is 10 pm MT (midnight ET) tomorrow, June 24. Then, on Wednesday, the 25th, we'll announce all the giveaway winners AND reveal all the new sets in full.

Thanks for stopping by today!
