Verve anniversary 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 loved this sketch the first time I did it, and I wanted to do it again with different papers and stamps. So I pulled out the Basic Grey Porcelain paper and layered it with Mellow Moss and Whisper White cardstock. This sentiment from Verve's Beautiful You set is so lovely and it goes so nicely with this happy pink and green paper.
I didn't have any wide Mellow Moss ribbon, so I made my own by sponging Mellow Moss ink onto some white satin ribbon. Isn't that gorgeous? The crochet butterfly comes from my friend Leah.
Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Kim's blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness.
EDITED TO ADD: So many of you have commented on Leah's butterfly, and several people have asked if she sells her creations. The answer is YES, she does. :-) You can find her crocheted butterflies and flowers at her etsy shop, Paper Blooms. Don't be afraid to email her for custom orders - she is so sweet and she is more than happy to do what you need in whatever colors you want. I'm not affiliated - I'm just a happy customer. :-)
