It's Verve Time!!!

Hi everyone!!! So sorry it's been foreverrrrrrr since my last update.....being sick isn't great for the creative mojo!

I have great news though.....this month Verve have some amazing new releases, and even better I get to play with them all as one of the guest designers for November! Stay tuned over the next few days as I share some of my sneak peaks and I hope you'll join us in the Verve forum at SCS for the release party on Sunday the 9th at 8pm (EST) that's Monday at 2pm here in New Zealand!

Also, don't forget to check out the Verve blog for the amazing sneak peaks by the Diva's and guest designers. As a special bonus Julee has created some amazing sketches for a Holiday Release challenge - be in to win the entire Verve release!

Here's one of the cards I've made with this month's Plain Janes. I'm still amazed, every single time, how beautifully Verve sentiments stamp. They're just gorgeous - I dare you to try and get a bad impression with one! The idea behind this card was to make the ATC sized layer removable so it can easily be popped in a purse, or on the fridge for inspiration on the go! Lots of shimmer and shine on this one in real life, I'm a true glimmermist convert lately!
