Happy Anni-Verve-sary!


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 Jennifer Roach'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 am thrilled to be hopping along and celebrating Verve's 3rd Birthday with you all.   For my card, I pulled out one of my very favorite Verve sets called Beautiful You.  I chose the Oprah quote to be the focus of my card. I think it is such a great quote.  I want to keep this short so that you have lots of time to hop around so I will  list the recipe below.  
Thanks for hopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Julie Lacey’s blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness.

Stamp:  Beautiful You Set-Verve
Cardstocks:  Neenah Classic Crest Natural, Memory Box Seedling, Memory Box Stripe, Bo Bunny Double Dot
Inks:  Memento Rich Cocoa, Ranger Antique Linen Distress
Embellies:  Prima Flowers, Crochet Ribbon, Rhinestones, MS Butterflies Punch, Twine, Button
