Ann~-VERVE~sary Spotlight Hop - Day 3


It's day three of our Anni-VERVE-sary spotlight hops, and we are featuring Doodled Occasions. In case you haven't heard... ;)... we're celebrating Verve's 5 year anniversary, so there are lots of prizes to win, and a variety of ways to win them. So click HERE for all the details.

For my little trio today (2 1/2" x 3 1/2"), I thought it would be fun to make itty-bitty chalkboards. So I embossed the images onto black cardstock with white embossing powder and colored them with color pencils.

I love making these mini-cards for that little extra something attached to a gift, or tucked in a backpack or suitcase for one of my kids.




Aren't these images just fun and whimsical?



Hope you're enjoying the Spotlight hops. Tomorrow I have a tag to share with you. The stamp set being peeked is one of my faves of this release, and the project is close to my heart too.

Happy Stamping my friends!!
