December Verve Diva Inspirations Hop


Hello!

Welcome to the December Verve Diva Inspirations Hop!

It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time. We love to get our Verve inky around here.  So pull up a chair and take a tour of some fun creations using Verve favorites. It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines.

You are on the right track if you've arrived here from Amy's blog. The hop is kicking off on the Verve Blog, so be sure to head there to get all the details!

This week there is also a contest going on at the Mojo Monday Blog. I used this week's sketch to help kick start my inspiration.


The holidays are in full swing around here, and I'm adding to the holiday card stack whenever I can.  For today's card, I used the Bright Spirits set, a fabulous holiday set (with the most gorgeous font EVER!) that was released in 2011.


There are lots of lovely Verve ladies joining us today - some of the release team is with us, so be sure to keep on hopping! Betty Wright is your next stop along the hop!

  28. Something about this is nostalgic to me - the pink and blue ornament maybe? So soft and subtle, and then that pop of orange from the button that looks like candy. Beautiful!
