Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop! Verve turns three today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! If you've already been hopping along, you arrived here from Patty's blog. If not, head on over to Julee's Blog (owner of Verve), for all the info on how to win prizes (after all, what's a party without presents?), and to start hopping from the beginning. If there's a hiccup along the hop, you can always head to the Master Hop List to get the full list of links.




I've been wanting to try one of these adorable shaped easel cards that have been popping up all over blog land:)  I used one of my most favorite Verve sets for the flowers~Miracles Blossom, and I thought an anniversary sentiment was appropriate so I used this one from the Verve set Wishful Elegance.  The dp is some fun Sweet Summertime by Echo Park Paper Co.  I had sooooo much fun making this, that I decided to make one more:


I used two more of my favorite sets~Relax, and Dude.  Don't you just adore those surfboards, and that font!!!  The dp is My Mind's Eye Lil' Robots. 


Thanks for hopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Julie's awesome blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness. Enjoy the rest of the hop:)
