  1. I love to use sequins and I got a lot of ideas for using them today. The cards were beautiful. Thanks for having the hop.

  2. Happy Anni-VERVE-sary!!!
    As you may already know I really, REALLY LOVE my Verve goodies. I just looked at my blog labels and I've used them on 222 projects so far. As a matter of fact I have them out on my craft table right now. They are waiting for me to create something with them as I type.
    I purchased some VERVE Pastel Mix sequins with one of my last orders and they are beautiful. And to go with my Verve Bots I got some fun Metal Mix sequins. I've been saving them for just the right project. They are definitely coming out to play now.
    Again Happy Anni-VERVE-sary! Here's to many, many more.
    Crafty hugs,
