A {Verve-iversary} Sketch For You To Try

Well, today's Saturday and time for Jen's Sketch For You To Try. However, this post has a two-fold purpose. Not only is it Jen's sketch, but it's also part of a BLOG HOP to celebrate Verve's 2nd Anniversary!! Here's the details on how it's hopping and how YOU can possibly win August's FULL release!

Welcome to the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop. Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you’ve just happened along, be sure to hop on over there to start from the beginning! And to make this party a real shindig, there’s a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky commenter on that blog will win Verve’s entire August release! But of course, it wouldn’t be a mystery if you knew which blog, would it? So if you’re feeling the love, give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy! Oh and since this is a Diva AND sweet Verve Lover's blog hop, HERE'S the master list of the order in which we're hopping today and all the details, just in case you get stuck somewhere!

Ope! I guess this post has another secret purpose, too! It's a Sneak Peek at a new set coming from Verve in the August Release! Woot Woot!!

Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Kristina's blog, Itty Bitty Pieces of Me, for a little more Verve-y goodness.

Don't forget to check out what my SFYTT sisters that aren't in the hop did with the sketch! That would be AMY R., KELLY and CAROLE! (Amy S. is in the Verve hop and you'll see her along the way or have already seen her Verve-y creation but I listed them all here anyway!). Don't forget to play along and use keyword SFYTT when uploading to your favorite gallery.

SUSIE Q-TIP: It's pretty rare that I make a card with no ribbon. It looks naked to me. Try it.

I'll come back a little later and edit in the supplies I used. I'm a little under the gun to get this posted in time! EEK!
