Verve Holiday Release Sketch Blitz

Hi Everyone! Are you ready for another Verve Release?

Today is day 1 of our 5 day Holiday Release Sketch Blitz. We've got 5 days of sketches and lots of chances to win our fabulous new holiday sets. Be sure to check out all the challenge details on our Verve SCS Forum. Today's sketch is one I designed specifically with mass production of holiday cards in mind. I kept the patterned paper square at 4" so I could make 9 cards out of one sheet of 12x12 paper. I really like how flexible and easy this sketch is. I posted a card using this sketch with a peek of the Poinsettia Christmas set on Poetic Artistry today. And here I'm showing a little peek of a set called Tall Oaks, which the Divas will be previewing for you tomorrow.

Speaking of previews, we have lots going on this week leading up to our Holiday Release Party on Sunday night. Here's an overview of what's going on this week...
