Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop!! I'm so excited to be here hopping along with Julee, owner of Verve, and all of her other adoring fans! I remember the day Julee first announced her new little adventure on her blog - I really cannot believe it's been three years already! (Sidenote: I also cannot believe I've been blogging this long!) :-) If you've been hopping along, you arrived here via (my idol!) Jen's fabulous blog. If you just happened to stop by my blog today, head on over to Julee's blog for all of the info on how to win prizes and start hopping from the beginning!! And if you get lost along away, head on over to the Master Hop List to get back on track. Now that all the formalities are out of the way, how about I show you my card?


Not only is it Julee's anni-VERVE-sary, but yesterday was my wedding anniversary! So I decided to make an anni-VERVE-sary anniversary card for my hubby. :-) I busted out a couple oldie but goodie Verve sets - Wild Thing for the heart, and Feeling Groovy for the sentiment. As you all know, Julee's stamps have THE BEST sentiments - love them so much!

It's kinda funny that you came here from Jen del Muro's blog, because I used her fabby sketch for my card.


Ok, that's enough chit chat, you have A LOT more hopping to do! It's time to hop on out of here and check out another wonderful Jen - Jen Cuthbertson!

Thanks for stopping by today!


  • Stamps: Wild Thing and Feeling Groovy from Verve Stamps
  • Paper: Hero Arts Kraft notecard, Stampin' Up black & vanilla CS, DP from AMuse (red) and Pink Paislee (blue)
  • Ink: Ranger Distress Ink (Fired Brick, Vintage Photo), Palette Noir
  • Accessories: Cork (MFT), Scallop edge die (PTI), circle dies (Spellbinders), pewter brads, machine stitching
