PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE MY ATS CHALLENGE CARD FOR TODAY

It’s almost time for another release over at Verve Stamps, and I’m so excited to be bringing you a sneak peek of a couple of the new sets that will be featured for this fabulous fall season!  Once again Julee has astounded us with her clean and elegant images along with sentiments that are versatile and ingenious.  Here’s a peek at the sets:

This is just the beginning of the sneak peeks for these two sets today…some of the other Divas are also sharing some Verve-y goodness on their blogs as well during our Fall Release Blog Hop!  Here’s the complete blog hop list:

There’s more going on this week as well, so let me take a second to fill you in on some of the excitement!  Be sure to check out the Verve Stamps Store to take advantage of the sale that is going on!  The set “Frosty Flakes” is marked down 40% until October 28th!  There were also World Card Making Day-Release Week Challenges (I used one of the sketches for my first card) issued over at the Verve Blog this past weekend!  You will NOT want to miss the rest of the release sneak peeks this week, so be sure to head back here tomorrow for the next Fall Release Blog Hop!

That’s it for today!  Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow with another Verve Fall Release Sneak Peek and Blog Hop!  Until then…
