Verve's 10th Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hop ~ Day 3


Welcome to Day 3 of the Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  It's time for another day of spotlighting the Verve release with the Verve Divas and special guests! We're super excited to have a couple very special Diva Alumni joining us for the hop today. Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online store on Monday, August 28. If you just can't wait, you can pre-order the entire release now as the August 2017 Buy it All Bundle at a 30% discount through August 27.

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Cake and Candles stamp set, another fusion of old and new. This birthday themed compilation includes some brand new birthday sentiments with a classy modern font pairing, as well as a few re-introductions of previous sentiments and plain janes.

I was just tickled pink (and aqua and purple and green and yellow) when Julee included my favourite birthday greeting into her new birthday set AND even made it the title of the set, "Happy cake and candles."  Honestly, though, I did not make it up.  I heard it somewhere eons ago and just loved it instead of the same ol' "Happy Birthday," (not that there's anything wrong with that sentiment either).  The spell predictor on my iPhone now adds "and candles" whenever I type in "cake." HA!  I made a card with things I love, a water coloured rainbow cut into a doily...perfection in my world!
