Verve May 2013 Spotlight Hop ~ Day 2

VR Day 2 Let Go photo VRDay2LetGo.jpg


Welcome to Day 2 of Verve's Sneak Peek Spotlight Hop.  If you have arrived from Christyne's blog you are right on track. If you happened up on the Hop, you can catch up using the list below.

Today's featured stamp sets are Let it Be and Deepest Sympathy Plain Jane.  I chose to spotlight one of the fabulous sentiments from the Let It Be set.  Julee continues to create the most amazing sentiment sets!!  I had a hard time choosing which one to use!

I finally settled on this great statement - one I have to remind myself of often because I tend to be an independent, take life by the tail type of person.  Not easy to let go of control at times, and oh how I have had to learn to let go and let God over and over again LOL!

I used Diva Sarah's amazing Verve sketch for this card and some yummy Park Bench paper from Fancy Pants.  In addition, I am swooning over the fact that Verve now carries this drool-worthy, polka dotted ribbon!!  I have coveted it for at least two years every time I saw Julee use it on one of her fabulous creations and now I have some in my very own craft room as well as a ready supplier - yeah!!
