...Verve Day Thursday

Good Thursday, Verve fans! The March Release is just around the corner...wanna see what's headed your way?Spring Fling Blog Party
We've got 4 new sets and 5 plain janes releasing this Friday night, and they're sure to put a spring in your step. To celebrate, tomorrow (March 5) we're having an all-day blog party at the Verve Blog. We'll be posting hourly starting at 1 PM Eastern, so be sure to join us for a day of challenges, sneak peeks and prizes.

Spring Fling Set Reveals & Chat
It's been a while since our last release, so we couldn't go without a bit of a chat to catch up with all our friends! Join us on the Spring Fling Chat thread tomorrow night at 9PM Eastern for an hour of speed-reading, set reveals, and gorgeous sample cards from the Divas as we countdown to the release.

Spring Fling Blog Hop
All of the Divas are stamping up a storm, and we'll be finishing off the night with a grand finale design team blog hop showcasing the new sets. The hop begins when the new sets release at 10PM Eastern, tomorrow night. There will be a chance to win the entire release, so be sure to tune in!

You've heard the announcements, and you're up-to-speed on the release details...now how 'bout a card that gives you a little sneak peek of one of the sets coming out in just a few hours?

I decided to sneak the new Verve set "Big Wish". This is just one of the THREE 4X8 stamp sets that are being released, and includes several birthday sentiments PLUS the cake image. I stamped the sentiment and cake in black onto PTI White Cardstock, then colored them with Copic Sketch Markers. They were paired with some patterned paper from the Early Bird paper pack by Cosmo Cricket. Some sewing, paper piercing, and some Red Stitched Ribbon helped complete the card.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and be sure to join Julee and the Divas tomorrow for the March release festivities at the Verve Blog. I will see you back here with TWO POSTS....the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge in the morning, and the Verve Spring Fling Blog Hop at 10:00 p.m. EST! Until then...

Supplies
Stamps: Big Wish (Verve...being released tomorrow night)
Papers: Not Quite Navy, PTI White, Early Bird DP (Cosmo Cricket)
Inks: Black
Accessories: copics, mat pack, paper piercer, scissors, dimensionals, sewing machine, MS border punch, ribbon
