Last friday Verve Stamps had an Anni-VERVE-sary party with a fantastic release of their new stamps. And I must say WOW, every set I WANT, which is very strange 'cause there is always one set that's not my style (from all the different companies I order from). I really wish my bank balance would say 'OK, order them now' but it doesn't :(.
Anyway, apart from the gorgeous new stamps, Julee had a challenge - a five sketch challenge - and I made cards and guess what???? I had them uploaded before the time *faint* (I'm just really slow at adding things to my blog!). So here are the cards that I made

  1. Oh wow Sian, these are just stunning. Love them all. Just beautiful.

  2. Well you have been a busy bee Sian!
    Making 5 cards and posting them all would be a record for me!
    Love all 5 cards, all different but equally beautiful. I do think Verve make some lovely stamps, and the sentiments in particular. I did look at how much it was to buy the full release, but I don't think I can afford all that this month!
    Love Elaine xx
