If you have come from ) Laurie W's blog, you are right on track. If you just happened upon the hop, there is a full hop list noted below.
The current VLV sketch was perfect for showcasing this adorable little bird. I paper pieced his outfit with Echo Park's 'Tis The Season papers and added one of the patterned seam bindings from the Black Beauty Ribbon Collection. The sentiment is on a die cut from the Flag It set. The glitter snow he is standing on is a bit hard to see, but it's there, honest!
My second card uses the new Every Heart Plain Jane. Love this sentiment and all it stands for! Pulled out some of my hoarded Lost and Found MME Christmas papers, used the Tagged Rectangle Die for the sentiment panel and over stamped the sentiment with the cross from Richly Blessed. The heart is from the Heart Quartet die set and the yummy polka dotted ribbon is from the Polka Dot Basics ribbon collection.
All the new sets are available over at the Verve Store today. In addition, take a little time to check out Verve's Thanksgiving Sale (25% off all stamps and dies) which starts today! The perfect time to do a little Christmas shopping for yourself and/or for you family on your behalf wink, wink!
