Anni-Verve-sary Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop! Verve turns three today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! If you've already been hopping along, you arrived here from JULIE E's blog. If not, head on over to Julee's Blog (owner of Verve), for all the info on how to win prizes (after all, what's a party without presents?), and to start hopping from the beginning. If there's a hiccup along the hop, you can always head to the Master Hop List to get the full list of links.
Everyone knows that the Verve Divas are awesome so it's hard to stand up to their awesomeness but I tried...even pulled out the sewing machine!! If you've read any of my previous posts or comments on other blogs, you'll know that I love the look of stitching, but have no sewing skills at all - so don't look too closely LOL!! :) I love the Wishing You sentiment set from Verve, so I used that as my focal point. For the flower, I stamped several of the Elegant Flower stamp from Verve, cut them out to create layers and tied a button on top. Then I added the crochet-like trim, sewing the trim edge and also around the patterned paper piece. Here's a close up of the flower:
The next stop on the Blog Hop is JESSY'S blog. Have fun and don't forget to leave a comment!
