Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop!

Welcome to the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop!

Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you’ve just happened along, be sure to hop on over there to start from the beginning! And 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! 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!


I used Julee's Mojo Monday Week 97 sketch for my Welcome Baby card. I used Verve's Practically Perfect stamp set. I stamped and colored the adorable bunny with Copic markers, then I sponged the background for a vintage look. I finished her bow off with some Star Dust stickles and added some dimensional glaze to her necklace. The image and sentiment panels are popped up with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Kayla’s blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness.
