Verve July 2014 Spotlight Hop ~ Day 1

Welcome to Day 1, of Verve's July 2014 Spotlight Hops!   This week, we're excited to be spotlighting 3 new sets, one Plain Jane and a coordinating die set every day through Friday.   Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store Friday night, July 11th.   

If you have come here from Chaitali's blog you are right on track.  If you just happened up on the Hop, you can follow the list below to get caught up.

Today we are featuring the first set by Chaitali, called Moments Remembered, and I just love the sentiments!  The one I chose for today's card resonates deeply within me.  It's so easy to complain about how things are but never try to do anything to change them, therefore never allowing an opportunity for change or the chance to be the one who brings about the change.  Be a change agent!  It's hard work, but the rewards are well worth it - thus the butterflies on my card. 



Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win today's featured products! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog today for full set reveals, an introduction of our 2 lovely guest divas, and all the prize info and deadlines!
