…Warm Winter Wishes

BE SURE TO SCROLL DOWN TO SEE MY OCL SKETCH CARD FOR TODAY

I have a special surprise for you today!  Are you a Verve fan?  If so, then you will NOT want to miss my posts for this week!  We not only had a release at the beginning of the month, but we are also having another release this Friday night featuring our Winter and Holiday sets!  If you’ve come here from Michelle’s Blog, then you’re in the right place…if not, you’ll want to head to the Verve Blog in order to start from the beginning!  I’ll be here each day showcasing a new set {or two}, but today I’ll be using you the “Winter Mittens” set.  You may recall this set was released previously as a digital set, but now it will be available in fabulous acrylic form.

What do you think?  This is just the beginning of the sneak peeks for several beautiful sets today, and some of the other Divas are also sharing some Verve-y goodness on their blogs as well during this Winter Release Blog Hop!  Here’s the complete blog hop list:

That’s it for today!  Be sure to leave a comment at each of the Divas’ posts for today…one random commenter will win one {or more} of the sets being spotlighted today!  Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow with another Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge and another Verve Winter Release Sneak Peek and Blog Hop!  Until then…
