Verve May Spotlight - Day 3

Thursday, May 9, 2013

Welcome to Day 3 of the May 2013 Spotlight Hops!  Today we're shining our Verve spotlights on the new stamps Strong Anchor, Adjusted Sails Plain Jane and the Nautical Die. Each of the release team Divas and Guest Divas below has posted her first look at these new stamps today. As you hop through the list below, you just might see some super sneaky peeks of new coordinating dies and ribbons, so keep your eyes peeled! Everything you see previewed along today's hop will be available in Verve's online store on Friday, May 10.

Want to win some shiny new Verve? We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win today's featured products! So be sure to leave a little comment on all the blogs below to increase your chances! Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines. Woohoo! Let's get started...



Today my card features one of the sentiments from Strong Anchor.  There are so many lovely sentiments to choose from on this set, I had a hard time deciding which one I wanted to use.  This one seemed perfect to go with this steering wheel from a ship.  (Now the cat's out of the bag that I'm no sailor because I'm pretty sure that's not called a steering wheel!  LOL)!  I wrapped some rustic twine around the layer with the sentiment because I've seen Master & Commander and I think that ropes and boats go hand in hand!  At least they do on my nautical themed card!

You should have arrived here from Andrea's blog and next up is Laurie W.  But don't worry if you are lost, because I'll be your port in the storm!  And anyway, here's the Master Hop List to guide you!
