Verve November 2016 Release Spotlight Hop ~ Day 3


Verve Stamps November 2016 Spotlight Hops

Welcome back to Day 3 of Verve's November Release Spotlight Hops!  It's an exciting day as there's new Verve in the store this morning! Two beautiful new sets and coordinating die sets just released and they're all available in the shop right now. To celebrate our new release, we're putting on another blog hop with a fabulous giveaway!

Today's featured focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!

If you have come here from Tenia's blog you are right on track.  If you just happened upon the Hop, you can check the hop list below to get caught up!


I had some fun with embossing paste while creating this card.  You need snow to make a snowman so I used my polka dot stencil to create my background, added a big snowflake behind the focal tag and tied things in with the sentiment.  We do not get snow often here on the coast so it is a bit of a disaster driving around here when it does (not for me but many others who are not used to driving in it) but I sure love the beauty of it and always fun to make snowmen with the kids even though they are kids as you are never too old to make snowmen :)

Want to win some shiny new Verve? Today's prize is a BIG one. We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win our ENTIRE new release! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog today for the full hop list and all the prize info and deadlines!
