And I'll glady stand up next to you and defend her still, today...'cause there ain't no doubt, I love this land...

Good morning, y'all! Verve Stamps just released 3 new sets and the Divas are celebrating with a new release hop today! First, a little housekeeping… if you clicked over from Amy’s blog, then you’re right on track. If not, then head on over to Julee’s blog, to start from the beginning. If the chain gets broken along the way, you can head over the Verve Blog for the full link list. Oh, and we’ve hidden a little prize for one lucky commenter along the hop, so be sure to spread a little comment love around as you hop! Okay, well, maybe it’s not so little. *wink* You could win the entire release, so what are you waiting for?!

I love the American Hero set that Julee created...what a great way to celebrate those that have sacrificed for our freedom. I wanted to make a clean and simple card, and I thought that this polka dot paper from Jillibean Soup was a perfect compliment to this set.



It's pretty self explanatory, so I'll let you mosey on along to AMBER's blog! Have a fabulous Saturday!
