Ann~-VERVE~sary Spotlight Hop - Day 6

Click HERE to see Day 1 of Waltzingmouse's Sneak Peek Hop.

I can't believe we're already to day six of our Spotlight hops!! Have you been enjoying all the sneak peeks? Have you participated in any of the challenges? I sure hope so because there are fabulous prizes to be won.

Once again we've picked a mystery blog from today's hop and hidden a prize! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list. We’ll draw a random winner from all of the comments on the mystery blog to win today's featured sets and dies. Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details and deadlines.

I used one of the sentiments from the set Stronger Love today. As usual, Julee has created yet another set with fabulous quotes in beautiful fonts!! They are so much fun!! The heart is paper pieced, and I added a couple of diecut gears to masculinize it a bit. The rest is pretty self explanatory. (Keepin' it simple so you can hop faster... ;)

Next on the hop is the super sweet and creative Amber.
