My First Blog Hop

Welcome to the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop. Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you’ve just happened along, be sure to hop on over there to start from the beginning! And to make this party a real shindig, there’s a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky commenter on that blog will win Verve’s entire August release! But of course, it wouldn’t be a mystery if you knew which blog, would it? So if you’re feeling the love, give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy!

Here is my submission to the Verve Stamps Blog Hop.
Verve Stamps: Pointsettia Christmas stamped directly on to BasicGrey's 'Wassail'. I used the solid color side of 'Noel' from the BG pack.
Inks: Ranger and Memento
I used the positive pointsettia to create Verve DP on the inside - by over stamping using different shades of pinks/reds.
Glitter Centers: Elmer's 3D Jumbo Pen
You can get up close with the card by clicking on the image.

Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to
Tanja's blog -
http://lovepapernstamp.blogspot.com/ for a little more Verve-y goodness.
