Verve Release Hop


Welcome to Verve's New Release Spotlight Hop! Verve is releasing a brand new set, coordinating word die and a couple of shaker mixes today, and the new goodies are available right now in the Verve store!

If you have come here from Laurie's blog you are right on track. If you just happened upon the Hop, The Hop List is noted below.

I must admit, I am not a huge chocolate lover (hubby isn't convinced I am a true female LOL), but I do have many friends who are, so this set Chocolate set will be well used.  When I think of decadent chocolate, for some reason I always picture it wrapped in gold foil.  That lead me to use the fabulous Chocolate Word die on brushed gold paper (the picture doesn't do it justice - sorry)!  I stamped the dripping chocolate image in Versamark on Early Espresso an then fussy cut it out (doesn't it make you wish it was real chocolate and you could run your finger along it and then lick it LOL!).  Had to use this sentiment as I know my daughter can totally relate to it (guess who will be getting this card at some point in time - grin).

Marisa, my dear friend, I've fallen 8 (yes, EIGHT) posts behind with commenting, but not with gazing and admiring in delight and awe at your wonderful creations. You know that all your cards, with their perfect, eye-catching paper combinations, pretty layers and always beautifully selected images set my heart pitter-pattering...love them all immensely! Especially those where butterflies appear *grin* And your showcase of the nifty new Verve release is ever so fun! Bring on the chocolate! That word die is delightful! I'll aim to be more prompt in commenting (fingers crossed) and thank you for visiting me, adding such sparkle to my days!
