Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight - Day 9



Welcome to our final day of Anni-VERVE-sary spotlight hops! It's been a super fun week, and I know for many of you, tonight's Release Party can't come soon enough!


Today we're focusing on Treasured Words, which includes a framed rectangle, a few images, and some of Verve's signature mixed-font greetings. I especially love these sentiments because of the casual font combo. Check out all of today's spotlights, and remember to leave comments along the way to win today's featured stamp set.

My card is doubling as a peek and as my sample for the new Viva La Verve Sketch challenge, which I'm hosting in the Verve Forum. It's the last of the month, so we have a CAS (clean-and-simple) sketch for you. Hope you'll play along. Now would certainly be a great time to complete all of the August sketches and possibly win some of this new release!

Here's the sketch:



Well ... today wraps up the Anni-Verve-sary spotlight hops. Hope you've enjoyed all the peeks and challenges and festivities, and that you'll be able to join us tonight in the Verve forum from 9-11 pm EST. I found out earlier this week that my husband and I have play tickets tonight, but I hope I'll be back home in time to catch the last half of the party! It's gonna be BIG!

Thank you for all the comment love this week! Hugs!
