Verve Countdown: Day Three!

Here we are at Day 3 of the Verve Countdown and I have to say that today's spotlight set may have to be my favorite... no, who am I kidding? I love them all! If you are looking for the perfect Mother's Day set, look no further! Julee has thought of everything with this one. It has sentiments for nearly every woman in your life!

For today's card I used the Viva la Verve Week One sketch and couldn't resist sneaking in some more of those fabulous flowers and leaves that you saw yesterday! They are so great to work with, I know that I will be using them a lot more in the future too.

It's time once again to shine our sneaky Verve spotlight on some brand new stamps! We're counting down to Verve's release party this Friday night, April 15, with FOUR days of Spotlight Hops! And since we love to share, there's a prize hidden on one of today's hop spots! Just leave a little shout-out in the comments as you hop about for a chance to win some new Verve of your very own! You can check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.
