Spotlighting Lucky You


Hi friends!  It's the first day of our January New Release Spotlight Hops, and today the Divas are shining their sneaky little spotlights on a few new products.  Hop along and leave some comments for the Divas, and you just might be a random winner of the stamps & dies we're previewing today... Lucky You, the coordinating Shamrock Die Set, and the Psalm 63:3-4 and Zephaniah 3:17 plain janes!  Check out the Verve blog for all the prize details and deadlines.



I've been wanting to design a St. Patrick's Day set since Verve first opened, but every year it sneaks up on me.  So 2012 is the year!  Here on my card I used the Lucky You set and cut out the shamrock with the Shamrock Die Set.  To get the black mat, I simply traced around the die with pencil and hand cut.  A smaller shamrock stamp is stamped around the circle for a fun little background and I finished with the Happy St. Patrick's Day sentiment, some bling from Pizzazz Aplenty and a big black bow.

That's it from me.  I'm keeping it short and sweet so you can get on with the hopping!  Here's today's hop list...
