Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop!

Hi everyone, it's Julee! Welcome to the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop! Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! So come along with us and check out all the fabulous creations from Verve fans everywhere. I heard a few rumors amongst the Divas that there might even be a few peeks at some of the stamps releasing this month!

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 (coming August 14)! 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!

My card for today uses a sentiment from one of our very first stamp sets (and still one of my all-time favorites), Fancy Florals. The papers are from the Sunsplashed line from Archiver's and I went a little funky and masculine with the layout. The Kiwi Kiss layer is embossed with the Spots & Dots cuttlebug folder and I did a little sponging with vintage photo Ranger distress ink. To add a little fun I copied the look of the bubbles on the paper with some fun half circle punches and finished with some star punches, chocolate pearls and a photo corner punch.

Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Laurie’s blog for a little Verve-alicious fabulousness!
