Verve Final Peek Day!


Hi there!  It's the final day of sneak peeks for Verve and you are going to LOVE the set we are peeking today!  It's called Great Friend and is the MOST STUNNING floral set!!  Julee always designs the most beautiful flowers and the flowers in this set are no exception! 

All of the sets you've seen this week will be available after the Verve Release Party.  Be there or be square.....8:00 pm EST in the Verve Forum on SCS!

Now let's get to the reason you're here!


I started with Anni-VERVE-sary sketch 2010B, but strayed a bit by adding the flowers in the corner!  But the sketch is there!  LOL!  I paper pieced three of the flowers with some delish Cosmo Cricket Togetherness DP.  See how they nestle perfectly together?  Ahhh....makes this girl happy!  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, cut out with Curved Rectangle Nestabilities and while it was still in the die I sponged some Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress inks around the edge.  Some rounded corners with my beloved Corner Chomper, some machine stitching and I called it done!

Now it's time to hop!  Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win!


Thanks for stopping by!!

Paper:  Kraft, Vintage Cream, Cosmo Cricket Togetherness DP
