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 was inspired by a Kristina Werner layout for this card.

Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to TERRI’s blog,
for a little more Verve-y goodness.
Supplies:
stamps - Up Up and Away, Anniversary Birds
paper - kraft, cool caribbean, bermuda bay, white, kraft dsp
ink - memento, copics, bermuda bay, fresh snow
acc - pearls, hibiscus burst ribbon, dimensionals
