Happy Anni - VERVE - sary!

I have hi-jacked my own blog (well, actually it's my girls' blog) today to take part in the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop. Verve is my very favorite photo polymer stamp company. I love their images, and especially their 'plain jane' scripture stamps. Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! When I saw some of the other blogs in the Hop, I have to admit, I was a little intimidated, because there are some seriously talented ladies taking part in this. Fortunately, it's not a competition ... it's a party. It kicked off over on the Verve blog, so 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 give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to hop on over to Jeanne's blog 'http://nannys-room.blogspot.com', for a little more Verve-y goodness. (If the Verve post on that blog isn't up, then the next one you want to go to is Kerri's http://www.cardsbykerri.blogspot.com/ )


Stamps: Kindred Spirits (Verve)


Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Thoroughly Modern DP (all Stampin' Up)



Accessories: Eyelet punch, Hodgepodge Hardware, 5/8 Vanilla Grosgrain (all SU)

Sylvia, (and any others that are lost along the bunny trail),

No, I'm not the last. The blog after mine didn't get the Verve post on, and I'm not sure if I should just link mine to the next one or what. I hate to do that in case Jeanne gets hers posted today. Anyway, until then, the next blog you want to go to is Kerris:

lmbudzik said...

Your card is very nice, but those corgis are adorable! We have a beagle/corgi mix named Hershey. She has the coloring and ears of a beagle, but the fur (shedding!!) and body shape of a corgi. She always feels just a little bit dumpy when hanging with her beagle friends because she doesn't have their slim waistline. I know the feeling!! : )
