Here's Your Verve Sneak Peek

Well, in case you don't already know, I wanted to be sure and be your efficient little informant and let you know that the Verve Sneak Peeks have begun on the Verve Blog. Today, Jen T., Jen d., Mercy and I are introducing you to one of the new sets. Verve fans, meet Party Time. Party Time, meet Verve fans. Here's what I had to say on the Verve Blog in so many words about my new friend:

Hello Verve fans! It’s time to party with Day 2 of the sneak peeks! I’m sure you’ll be lovin’ this new set called Party Time. I know I do. I immediately thought of this paper that I had from Basic Grey with the balloons and numbers on it when I saw this set. I couldn’t wait to pair the balloon image up with it. I stamped it three times, colored all the balloons with my Copics, and then cut them out. (Yes, I left the little white spaces between the strings because I’m terrible at using an X-acto knife! So it’s ok if you do the same! I hereby give you permission!) I put the card together and at the last minute decided to tie the little twine strings onto the balloon strings. Anyway, I hope you like what you’ve seen so far…there’s lots more to come!

SUSIE Q-TIP: A little dab of glue behind the twine balloon strings keeps the bows from coming undone. Is it just me, or does that string just not make tight knots?
