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!

In honor of today's celebration I created this classic B&W card using this weeks MOJO97 sketch. I just love Julee's sketches!! I used the newly released Just For You and Kindred Spirits sets with this yummy Black Tie DP by Making Memories. See Recipe below for more deets.

Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Lori's blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness.

Recipe:

Paper: Black Textured CS (American Crafts), Whisper White CS (SU), Black Tie DP (Making Memories)

Stamps: Just For You (Verve), Kindred Spirits (Verve)

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Going Gray

Tools: Small Dots Texturz Plates (SU), Photo Corner Punch (SU), Small Classic Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinder), Small Classic Scalloped Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinder), Paper Piercer

Embellishments: 1" Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Rhinestones, Large Brads, Foam Tape
