Verve Sneak American Hero


Happy Friday!!  I have one last peek for you with a soon to be released Verve set, American Hero!  This is a wonderful Patriotic set that has some of the most wonderful sentiments and some fabulous images.  It also doesn't have to be used for just the 4th of July....it can be used to honor our everyday heroes, too!  Wait until you see this set in it's entirety!!

I went the traditional red, white and blue with my card.  My blue is actually a pair of my old denim jeans!  Who knew they'd come in such good crafty use?  LOL!  Don't you love the sentiment?   It is because of the brave men and women who serve our country that we enjoy such freedoms!

To see more cards made with this set, don't forget to check out the Verve Blog today!  The Diva's have some incredible cards to ooohhhh and aaahhhh over!!

I hope you'll join us for the Verve Release Party tonight!  The fun starts at 9:00 EST in the Verve forum on Splitcoaststampers.  All of the sets peeked this week will be available for sale immediately following the party!  Hope to see you there!
