Here they come, every night the same...silent stars, light from a distant flame...

Happy Friday, yall! Today I have a Sneak Preview of new Verve sets to be released on Sunday night...Poinsettia Christmas and Ornamental Christmas. You will love these sets!

I ran across this paper mache' house on sale on a recent trip to Hobby Lobby, and I knew I had to pick it up. Turns out, it was perfect for this sentiment from Poinsettia Christmas!
Cute, huh? I covered the house with Cosmo Cricket's Oh Joy paper, then added some ribbon and a sentiment from Poinsettia Christmas. I stamped the flower on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, then colored it with Copic markers and cut it out. The sentiment was stamped on Very Vanilla and matted with Chocolate Chip cardstock. After applying Crackle Accents, I cut out the flower and popped it up on the sentiment. Inside the box is a gift card to Pottery Barn. (Is it sad that I want to keep it for myself? *grin*)

The card is fairly simple, and uses the Verve Holiday Release Sketch Blitz #1. Finish these sketches and you'll have a chance to win FREE STAMPS!! Woo hooo!!!!

Anywho, instead of the image, I added a piece of a Cinnamon stick...it smells yummy! Thought it would be the perfect addition.

For more previews of the sets to be released on November 10th, visit the Verve Blog. The divas and guests have outdone themselves...plenty of inspiration here! I hope you enjoy all the eye candy, and join us on Sunday night at 7:00 PM Central in the Verve Forum for the release party. All the info is HERE.

Have a fabulous day!
