Happy Anni-VERVE-Sary blog hop!!!!!



Good Morning Everyone!!! Today is an exciting day because its the day that Julee Tillman launched VERVE - home of all things Verve-a-licious and awesome! To celebrate this Anni-VERVE-sary, Julee has invited all Verve fans for a blog hop - filled with prizes and fun! So get ready to Verve! If you have hopped over from the awesome blog of the creatively amazing Verve Diva LYNDA B. then you are at the right place - or if you are starting here (a big hello and a wave!!) and you can also start at the beginning of the hop over at Julee's gorgeous blog: POETIC ARTISTRY! There is a very special prize for one lucky commentator and some yummy hidden prizes along the way!!!

First of all, I can't even begin to thank Julee for allowing me to be part of the Verve DT - thank you so much from the bottom of my heart Julee - you are so amazing and to celebrate this amazing day with all the Verve fans out there is sooo beyond special!!! I wanted to create a Happy Birthday card since Verve is 3 years old! So I pulled out the awesome stamp set Happy Days (Which you can win!!! more details at the end of the post!!!): and started stamping away! I love the center circle wave-y graphic and inside it I stamped the sentiment "Have a Happy..." in two tones of green and then picked out the sentiment "birthday" and stamped that in Taken with Teal. I love that you can create your own image sentiment by doing that! I love these colors from My Mind's Eye's: O La La collection - and of course had to stop myself from o la la with my liquid pearls addiction:

Here is a close up of my image:


Card Ingredients:
Paper: My Mind's Eye (O La La)
Ink: Memento Rosebud, Ladybug Red, Cottage Ivy, Pear Tart and SU! Taken with Teal
Accessories: Spellbinders, Adirondack's liquid pearls, pearls, dimensionals, ribbon from stash, die cuts from the MME paper pack

Isn't this stamp set just awesome!! AND GUESS WHAT???!! Julee is going to give away this stamp set as a gift to one lucky commenter!!! So please leave a comment below before Weds. August 4th (@11:59pm) and YOU could be the winner of this stamp set (isn't Julee just beyond generous and sweet!).

I can't wait for all the eye candy that is out there in blogland today as more than 80 fans of Verve have joined in for a blog hop extravaganza!!! So hop on over to TAMI's blog as we hop along the Anni-Verve-sary blog hop route!!!

And if for any reason the blog hop chain gets broken - please head back to the MASTER LIST (click HERE) !!!

A huge huge congratulations to Julee and Mr. Verve for this amazing company that they have created and for their generosity and sweetness!!! Wishing you continued success and joy always!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)

That is amazing! All those liquid pearls must really take effort - and you've got so much going on it's hard to know what I love best....probably the two tone green of the sentiment...it really catches my eye. Lovely work, Sankari!
