Verve Spotlight Hop Day 2 ~ Egg-stra Special and Dies

It's Day 2 of the Verve Spotlights, and we're hopping with a new set called Egg-stra Special. Verve is also releasing some new dies: Charming Banner and Charming Oval. They're just the sweetest! All the new stamps and dies you see over the next three days will be available following our ReLeAsE pArTy this Friday night from 9-11pm Eastern.

I have a CAS card to share today, in which I used two different eggs (there are 4 designs), and one of the sentiments (there are 7 in this set). This set has a total of 17 images, so there's a lot to choose from.

I colored my eggs with Copics, and added a touch of sparkle to the "special" egg with some glitter. Here's a close-up so you can see the sparkle better.


That's it for my card today. You won't want to miss what these other gals have created with this set. They're all amazingly creative!!

1. Laurie 7. Julee
2.Charmaine 8. Sankari
3. Jackie 9. Janelle
4. Amber 10. Maureen
5. Tosh 11. Teresa
6. Andrea 12. Amy

Don't forget, we've hidden a prize along the hop today! One lucky commenter on one of the Diva Hop Spots below will receive today's featured stamps, (Lucky Ducky and the Hope Perches Plain Jane) plus the Charming Oval Die Set we'll be previewing tomorrow! Deadline for commenting is 6PM Mountain on Friday, March 25. Winners will be announced during our ReLeAsE pArTy that night!
