Anni-Verve-sary Blog Hop/Curtain Call













Good morning, it is going to be a great day, today marks the third anni-Verve-sary for Verve Stamps, I am so very proud to be apart of Verve.  Julee has planned a celebration with a hop, hop, hop!  If you've already been hopping along, you arrived here from the super fun and super duper talented Carolina Creative Pad'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 used the sets Bountiful Backgrounds, luv this set and the set Party Time.  It is a party and we are celebrating, what a fun set for today!  Be sure to leave a comment, you could win these sets! 

I also have another very exciting surprise, I am thrilled to announce that I am the guest for Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge....I have been playing along with Stacey from the beginning.  She used to showcase gorgeous jewelry(luv me some jewelry) as the inspiration and color, before her current picture and circle swatch as inspiration, which I also luv!  I look forward to playing with the Curtain Call DT....thank you for having me this month, it is an honor friend!  The colors are so yummy together, I do hope that you will play along!  
Thanks for hopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Tracey's Stamping Blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness. 

Be sure to check out the gals from the Curtain Call DT, these ladies creations are always amazing!
