Verve New Release Spotlight ~ Day One

aprilwhatsshaking

Hey blog friends and Verve fans!!  What’s shakin’?  LOL  It's time to shine our sneaky Verve spotlight on some brand new stamps! We're counting down to Verve's release party this Friday night, April 15, with FOUR days of Spotlight Hops! And since we love to share, there's a prize hidden on one of today's hop spots! Just leave a little shout-out in the comments as you hop about for a chance to win some new Verve of your very own! You can check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.

How adorable is this little bunny shakin’ what his momma gave him?  As everyone must know by now, I’m the non-colouring Diva (HA!) and paper piecing is my way around it.  I thought it would be fun to paper piece our little “wabbit” with some fabulous Basicgrey papers.  My husband likes this one because when I showed it to him, I shook my hips 3 times!! LOL  The white pompom tails are from my pompom trim I HAD to have 2 years ago but never used much…lol  Up next is my Get Your Diva Card…yes, you’ve seen something very similar posted on the GYDO thread yesterday…can you figure it out?

Yes, the sentiment…this is the original card but then I realized the GYDO challenge started on Monday so I would be sneak peeking a little too soon.  So I used the old switcheroo! HA!  This sentiment is from Birthday Phrases, one of 3 little phrase sets that fit perfectly onto the Charming Oval and Charming Label Dies.  Okay, onto some more delicious eye candy…here’s the list and see you tomorrow!!
