Because of You



Remember the Anni-VERVE-sary blog hop two Saturdays ago? Well, that was just the very beginning of a fabulous anniversary celebration! The festivities continue this week in a big way:

--Julee has posted five special Anni-VERVE-sary sketches. One participant from each sketch will win a set of her choice, and if you complete all five, you become eligible for the grand prize (the entire release).

--Each day in the Verve Forum, a few of the Verve Divas will be posting giveaway threads, where we each get to give away one $25 Verve gift certificate to one of the participants in our activity/challenge/game/etc. So far today you can see, Julee's activity giveaway, Charmaine's challenge giveaway, and my game giveaway. Hope you'll come play!

-- Sneak peeks of the new sets begin tomorrow (Tuesday), over on the Verve Stamps blog, and continue each day through Friday.

-- Today, the two new August Guest Designers were introduced on the Verve blog! Welcome, Mercy and Sankari!

--Friday night, August 14, we'll have our Release Party. Mark your calendars!

A bit about the card before I go ... I {heart} Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird line (although I must be channeling Lynyrd Skynyrd because I keep wanting to call it Free Bird. Either that or Early Girl, a variety of tomato - LOL). That said, I don't love my card - just being honest here. I had a vision in my head, but this was not it :) That's okay, you get to see it anyway!

Have a great week!

OMG Amy this is just DELICIOUS...can a card be delicious? I think so. Anyway, that's the first thing that came to mind after I wiped the drool from my face.

This is so fun and bright! I love that ribbon and the stamped sentiment right on the polkadot pp! It's really pretty and I'm glad that you shared it even though you didn't like it because as you can see most of us disagree with you! :)
