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!
Without further waiting LOL, here is my card
This has been such a fun week. Working on my project. I am really falling in love with the hot air balloons from Up, Up & Away. I went ahead and added quite a bit of bling. I really like working with my glue pen and glitter. It really allows me to add some fun accents. The orange button from this set is a lot of fun and I really like the accent and punch it gave the card.

Thanks again for looking! I can't wait to see what everyone else has created.
Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Libby's blog, for a little more Verve-y goodness.

It's a good life!
Terri E.
