Verve Sneak Peek--Winter Mittens

Well, I guess it's true. Winter is on its way. Somewhere. Here in North Texas, at the end of October, we are reaching the 90's. Classic Texas weather. Hot, then about 2 weeks of Fall in November and straight to Winter is usually about how it works around here. So it makes me really happy (and strangely confused) to start off the week with a high temperature expected at 91 degrees today and a Winter Release Peek for Verve! Teehee. I'm loving all the unusual color combos I'm seeing for the holidays so far. So when it came time to make this little card, I was thinking of some cute little girls' winter clothes some stores are trying to sell in this hot weather. Ha! The new set I've used is called Winter Mittens and it's so sweet! The mittens are colored with my Copics (I promise it matches better in real life--don't know what's going on with the picture) and I stamped the hearts (also included in the set) directly on the mittens in red to look like a little applique--just like something Audrie would wear.

There are tons of new sets and several Plain Janes coming ya'll's way--can I just say--LOVE? That's what you'll think of them. Promise. All of them will be released this coming Friday, October 29th. Join us for the Verve Release Party over on SCS HERE Friday night at 9pm EST.

For now though, ya'll can get your kicks by checking out what the other Divas have in store to spotlight for you on their blogs using this new Winter Mittens set and more! The Verve blog is what you'll want to be stalking all week for a list of the Divas and their blogs each day and Sneak Peeks galore. Starting with today!!

SUSIE Q-TIP: This silver ribbon was a purchase I made a LOOONG time ago from Stampin' Up. I don't even know if they still carry it. I needed it for mass-producing my Christmas cards (which I no longer do--my list grew to over 70 people!), and it has always been a favorite. It may be out of style. I look at it as "vintage". Get some and have fun.
