A note to say...

With insane internet problems I am FINALLY here today with 2 posts that didn't go live this morning.  I am just getting off work and happy that everything is back in order....for now at least!  :)  Scroll down to see my card for CAS-ual Fridays!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Welcome to our May 2013 Spotlight Hops!  Today we're shining our Verve spotlights on the new stamps Take Note and Happy Graduation Plain Jane. 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.  Let's get started...

May Verve Release

I used the pencil image to create the lined border.  Then I paper pieced a little envelope and added in a wooden heart.  This Take Note set is so fun!  There are lots of sentiments and fun little images included!
