Verve's in the Hooousse!!

Okay you guys, IF you have never heard of the Verve Stamp Company you are missing some serious awesomeness! I have to tell you I wasn't paid to write about them. I participate in a little handful of challenges. Of the handful I do, 3 of them are hosted (?) by Verve. Mojo Monday, Viva la Verve and the Verve Blog Inspiration Challenge. Since I've been back in the crafty world (about 6 months) I discovered them, their challenges and decided I really liked their images. So, when I was chosen for Via la Verve winner for April (random.org) I was super excited because I won product!! I ordered using my gift card like on Friday-ish, It was in my hot little hands yesterday!!! Crazy fast shipping. I've been able to play and lemme tell 'ya - super nice! I'm in love! I'll definitely be shopping with Julee (owner of Verve) for a looong time to come - do yourself a fav and check out their store.

So, as you might imagine, the two cards I created today, I used Verve stamps and dies! Whoot whoot! I will be linking up to the three challenges I mentioned before as well. Go "fig-gure"!!



So, the stamp sets I used are full of amazing images and sentiments, the flower and sentiments on both cards came from a set called Surely Goodness and the butterfly came from a set called Petals and Wings. The cardstock & pattern papers came from Joann's while they were on sale 50% off! I colored the flower using Copic markers B32, B34, Y11 and Y13. The little bow is from a huge roll of cream seam binding I got from an Etsy shop called Zipperstop. Waaay cheaper to get a roll from them $9.50 for 100 yards! I've had this roll forever and adore it!

That's it from me - one very happy, delighted and excited little lady! Now, I'm off to play with my goodies some more!!

BTW - I will do a few more product specific postings using a few of the products I love from companies I adore if you wanna check back and see what (or who) I'll be talking about.

Thanks for Stopping By!
Smiles & Hugs!
