Oh Baby! It's the Verve Fan Hop!



"Sometimes the smallest things
take up the most room in your heart."
~ Winnie the Pooh

I love this quote and just bought the stamp online a week ago from VERVE Stamps.  Their service is remarkable and so are *all* their products.  Oh, how I wish $$ was no object, as there are several sets I would love to have!  Which is just one of the reasons I created this card today. ;)   Verve is having a Blog Fan Hop and there is a $30 Gift Certificate as the PRIZE!   Oh Baby, I could really use that!  ;)

Don't you think the Winnie the Pooh quote is perfect for a baby card?  Although I'm not so sure that using designer paper with *elephants* really goes with the saying!  But I've been hoarding this Oh Baby Girl paper by Basic Grey long enough.  As you'll see, I couldn't bring myself to cover up the cuteness, so not much layering on this one...

Die cut shape is from "A Cut Above Dies" by Verve

the inside finished to coordinate with the outside...
stitching, button & linen thread too!


Blogger is being a challenge today and I just lost half of what I typed.  ugh!  Oh well, I really just want to give a shout out and a very warm welcome to all of you who may be visiting my blog for the first time as a result of the Verve Blog Hop.  Thank you for stopping by and do come back again real soon!   ;)

Enjoy every minute of your weekend!  Smiles 2 All of U !

Am I a HUGE elephant fan myself and LOVE this DP! (I can't believe I missed it in the stores). Thank you for not covering too much of it up with that pretty sentiment. Love how you included some inside the card as well.
