You're So Sweet



Yesterday, Verve Stamps began a series of sneak peeks on the Verve Stamps blog, all leading up to the Verve Release Party this Friday at 8 pm Eastern. We've got party favors along the way, as well as a special series of Looking for Love Release Week Challenges in the Verve Forum on SCS. Lots going on, and I don't want you to miss a thing, so before I get to today's goodies, be sure to go back to yesterday's Verve blog post for peeks of a new set called Meditations. Just for leaving a comment on each day's blog post, you'll have a chance to win that day's previewed sets. You can try every day!

Also, you won't want to miss the Looking For Love challenge series. Start with yesterday's Day 1 Challenge (where you can also download a PDF of all four challenges), then check out today's Day 2 Challenge. Just for completing the four challenges, you'll have the honor of being a Verve Challenge Champion, which enters you into a drawing to win the entire release (all six sets), a $78 value!

The card I'm showing today is a peek at a new set called Sweet Valentine, and it is a sweet one! I've used some traditional Valentine colors here, but don't be fooled into thinking of this as a Valentine-only set. Three of the four stamps in this little set work just as well year-round as they do for Valentine's projects. I know I {heart} my hearts all year long! And at only $9, this one's a must-have.

Hope you get a chance to play along in the challenges!

Boy, oh boy. I so enjoy watching for Amy's designs at SCS and getting her posts to my email address. I dreamed as a child to be a ballerina. I became a banker. I still dream though of stampin like her one day. Amy, you truly are a blessing to follow. Thanks for leading.
