Verve's January Inspiration Hop

Hello and welcome to the first Verve Inspiration Hop of 2012!

You should have come to me from Betty but if you didn't and want to start at the beginning please hop on over to the Verve Blog for a full list :) Be sure to hop along for your chance to win a $30 gift certificate to Verve!

Ok so this Christmas we received a Keurig and it's gotten a lot of LOVE in the past couple of weeks!
I've put the Tassimo away and only bring it out when I want a Chai Tea Latte ;)

I thought it would be fun to make a card using the Better With You stamp set.
I paper pieced the cup with a couple scraps of the designer paper from Echo Park's Yours Truly pad.
The sentiment was cut using the Tiny Sweet Scallop Die.
Stamps: Better With You; Cardstock: White, Black, Echo Park Yours Truly DP; Inks: Black; Accessories: Tiny Sweet Scallop Die, Sewing, Silver Pearls, MFT Scallop Die, Dimensionals, Twine

Now to carry on with the hop....
Jackie Pedro...please welcome her to the Inspiration Team!
