Welcome to our Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops!  As many of you know, Verve is celebrating its 5th anniversary this month and the party is just getting started! Come join us over the next 9 days as we showcase the 23 new stamps and dies releasing from Verve!

I am using a sentiment from the new set Stronger Love.  This font is one of my favorites and I just love this saying...

I made the rays but cutting 2" x 6" rectangles and then cutting them in half diagonally.  They make quick and easy sunshine rays to layer behind any sentiment, frame or cloud!  Easy peasy!  I am the last stop again today but if you would like to keep going, here is the master list...
