Verve Spotlight Hop Day 3 ~ Love Deepens

Hello everyone!! Have you been enjoying the Verve Sneak Peeks this week? I tell you, these gals are a constant inspiration to me. I love seeing what they create with Julee's fabulous images and sentiments. Today, I'm sharing a wonderful sentiment from the set Love Deepens. This set is chalk full of sentiments representing just about anyone who has a special place in your heart. And, typical of Julee style, the fonts are beautifully put together. I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch 185 as my starting point.


I just LOVE the way Julee combines fonts. Isn't this sentiment beautiful?

Since it's Thursday, I used the CCEE Stampers Challenge for this card too. Cindy challenged us to use pink and black on a card. In case you haven't noticed on my blog, I don't use black that often, so this was a true challenge.

That's it from me...Now be sure to check out what the other divas are up to. And don't forget: we're still counting down to Verve's release party this Friday night, April 15. And since we love to share, there's a prize hidden on one of today's hop spots! Just leave a little shout-out in the comments as you hop about for a chance to win some new Verve of your very own! You can check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.
