Verve Spotlight Hop Day 3 ~ Small Phrases



TODAY'S Featured Set:


plus the Philippians 1:6, Light Tomorrow and Life is Good PJ's


It's the final day of the Verve Spotlighting. Have you liked what you've seen? Are the sentiments fabulous? The fonts beautiful? And the images charming? Today I decided to use the Viva la Verve sketch I'm hosting over in the Verve Forum, along with the Philippians 1:6 Plain Jane. I love this verse!! It's so encouraging!!

I framed it with a Circle and Lacey Circle die (Spellbinders), and sponged the inside with Old Paper and Tumbled Glass Ranger Distress Ink. I embossed some Webster's Pages dp with a Sizzix embossing folder, added some lace, Rhinestones, some seam binding ribbon and a button. The sweet little scallops were made with the mini-scallops die by Amuse.

Here's a close-up of the sentiment.
"Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ" - Philippeans 1:6



That's it for me for today. Thank you so much for stopping by!
Here's a list of all the hoppers today. You don't want to miss a stop!!
