Happy Anniversary VERVE.



Welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop! Verve turns three today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! If you've already been hopping along, you arrived here from oh, so talented Susan's  blog. If not, head on over to Julee's Blog (owner of Verve), for all the info on how to win prizes (after all, what's a party without presents?), and to start hopping from the beginning. If there's a hiccup along the hop, you can always head to the Master Hop List to get the full list of links.   I am just thrilled to be a part of this celebration for one of the nicest people and the finest companies around!  I adore all my Verve stamps!!!




Believe it or not, this card began with one of Julee's first sketches from 2007.  I think somewhere along the line it began to have a life of it's own but I still like the way it turned out.  Of course, I chose to do it in aqua and brown (Verve's colors) and chose some designer paper from DCWV paper pack Nana's Kitchen and cardstock from my stash of Papertrey Ink... aqua mist and a rich brown.  The sentiment is from Verve's newest release Blue Skies... love it!  Since I'm toward the end of the hop, I'm going to spare you the details (but they're below) and let you get on your way!  You've been at this awhile.
Thanks for hopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to  Kerri's blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness.

Bye for now...
Patty
