Be Kind... REWIND

http://shopverve.comHi friends!  Life is crazy busy around our house and I don't see any free time in my future, so I thought I'd pop in and share a few of my favorite cards from this year.  But first a little enabling...

Verve's annual end of year sale is going on through December 31 and the savings are BIG!  Everything in the store is 10 - 60% off! 

Plus, there's a special coupon code for an EXTRA 10% off your purchase!  Just enter SHOPHOP in the gift code box in our shopping cart and click apply.  The sale is limited to stock on hand and things are selling out quickly, so head on over and take a look!

Last year when I got to the end of the year, I vowed to keep better track of my favorites throughout the year and pretty much I think it might have been the only personal goal I was able to accomplish in 2013!  I picked three favorites from the previous month at the first of every month, and made a little spreadsheet with links so I'm happy to say this post is going to be super easy for me!  Hooray!  So, without further ado... here are my favorites from January and February of this year...

  1. Gorgeous array of cards, Julee :) Love seeing which ones people pick as their favorites. I just love the second January card with the gelato flowers! Hoping you get some grandma and grandpa help over the holidays so you can get a little rest ((hugs)).
