Last, but not least, the release party will be this Friday night (August 14) at 8PM Eastern. We'll be revealing the 7 new sets and 2 plain jane singles, as well as chatting and announcing all of our release week winners. Be there or be square! Oh, WHERE you ask? Over on the Release Party thread in our forum!

Julee has really outdone herself with the new releases, so you'll want to check them out.
Hope to see you in the Verve Forum on SCS!!

Here's a card I made awhile back and haven't had a chance to upload yet. I used a sentiment from Verve's Forever In Our Hearts set. I just stamped it with Espresso (Adirondack Dye Ink), directly onto Making Memories Designer Paper. It's pretty straight forward.

I'd like to welcome the two guest Verve Divas for the month too. They are fabulously talented, and most friendly!!

Welcome Mercy Kerin and Sankari Wegman!!! You guys are AWESOME!!

Stamps: Forever In Our Hearts
Paper: Spring Willow Medium (Prismatics), Neenah Natural White, Making Memories dp
Ink: Espresso (Adirondack Dye Ink), Antique Linen (Ranger Distress Ink)
Accessories: Buttons (PTI), Sewing Machine, Fiskars Border Punch

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Happy Stamping!!
