Verve November Release Thankful Hearts Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone,

Its me again :) Have you been enjoying all of the fantastic sneak peeks and challenges over at the Verve blog today during our Thankful Hearts Blog Party?!! Check them all out over here - there are 5 challenges (here they are listed - click on each one to take you to the specific challenge on the Verve blog:

and lots of prizes - check out all the beautiful samples and details here on the Verve Blog!

Since today is the release of all the new Verve Yumminess
we’re topping off our Thankful Hearts Blog Party with a blog hop featuring three new sets that just released, all focused on thankfulness. If you’ve been hopping and arrived from Teresa’s beautiful sunshiney blog , then you’re right where you should be. If you’ve just happened by, then you’ll want to hop on over to Julee's Blog: Poetic Artistry to start from the beginning! And to make this hop even sweeter, we’ve got a special treat hidden along the way for one lucky commenter. So if you see something that makes you smile, be sure to give a little shout-out in the comments for a chance to win our entire release!

I created three thankful samples for today's blog hop party :) The first uses Jen dM and Susan's awesome challenge to create a Mini Pizza Box (which is challenge 4 of the five challenges on the Verve blog that you can play for a change to win some yummy Verve stamps!). I used the Celebration of Thanks stamp set to create this Pizza Box - I adore the font on this set - it is so elegant and beautiful!


Card Ingredients:
Paper: Graphic 45, Ink: Memento Lady Bug Red and Tuxedo Black, Stamps: Celebration of Thanks from Verve, Accessories: spellbinders, dimensionals, sponger, liquid pearls, ribbon from stash

The second card I made uses Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #108 and the stamped sentiment from the set Heartfelt Accents stamp set: I love making thank you cards to give after the holidays to thank everyone for their beautiful gift (and its a great way to use up all the holiday paper!) :
Card Ingredients:
Paper: Graphic 45, Ink: Memento Expresso, Stamps:
Heartfelt Accents stamp set Verve, Accessories: spellbinders, dimensionals,flower from Bo Bunny, liquid pearls, ribbon from stash

The last card I created was one of my favorite ones - it was made for a very special person in my life: my daughter (who we also call Lollipop as a nickname :) She wants every card I make to be a card I make especially for her - so this time I did - here is my little Lollipop's card with the sentiment that I love because it totally fits her sweet cute little self :) :) This card also uses the stamp set:
Heartfelt Accents:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Prism Cardstock Ink: Memento Rose Red and Aquamarine and Color Box chalk, Stamps:
Heartfelt Accents stamp set:, Accessories: spellbinders, dimensionals, , liquid pearls, ribbon from stash and bling from Kaiser.

THank you so much for hopping over here!

Next up on the blog hop party circut is the awesome Jen del Muro - so hop on over and check out her beautiful creations!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!!!
Big heart hugs :)
Sankari :)
