Beautiful You Preview and Your Chance to WIN This Set and Lots MORE!

Well, it's Day 4 of Verve's One Year Anni-VERVE-sary Celebration!! (Go HERE to get caught up on days 1-3.) Julee (the one and only) decided to design a set that would have a little piece of each of the current Verve Divas in it. The set, called Beautiful You, has 13 stamps (one sentiment from each Diva and a beautiful flower image) and will be available at our August 13 Verve release. Over the next 12 days, each Diva will be sharing the sentiment/quote they picked to be included in this set, as well a little about why they picked it. I love everyone’s quotes for far! Julee, Charmaine and Jen have had such introspective quotes with beautiful thoughts behind them (and all their cards are gorgeous, too, btw!). Well, I’m here to shake things up a bit and throw in a dose of FUN (wouldn't be me, if I didn't)!!

Here’s my quote: ’If you never did, you should. These things are fun and fun is good.’ ~Dr. Seuss

Why I chose this quote: It just fits me!! I’m a very lighthearted and usually happy person, so when a friend of mine (Hi Sheila!) sent me this quote and told me it described me to a “T”, it just stuck!! I have loved it ever since and I even have it in my Auto-siggy line for my personal email. I believe in making life fun and finding joy in everything I do! It just speaks for my general outlook on life!!

Do ya'll like Hello Kitty? I know it's Julee's favorite, and when I went to get started on this card, I was on the hunt for some "fun" paper in my stash to go with my "fun" sentiment and found this! Perfection!! I also used Julee's Mojo Monday #48sketch, but changed it up to be a long card for Laurie's Meet the Verve Diva's Challenge. SO much going on with VERVE!! Keep reading for more FUN!.....
