October Verve Diva Inspirations Hop

Welcome to Verve's October Diva Inspirations Hop!

It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to serve up some fresh inspiration with their Verve stamps! Leave some comment love along the hop spots for a chance to win a prize, then grab some stamps and play along with our October inspiration challenge for another chance to win!
This month's challenge is entitled Fall Fancy:


The air is crisp and the colors are warm – celebrate fall with a spook-tacular creation or a thoughtful thank you using Fall as your inspiration!

Fall is my most favorite season.  I love the smell of the air and the beautiful colors.  I channeled the changing leaves for a simple creation for this month. 


My autumn wreath is actually an image from the Glad Tidings set - who says that beautiful design has to be for Christmas only? :)  I wanted the fall colors to be bold and bright, so I let the wreath take front and center.  The sentiment is from the Bountiful Harvest set, another favorite of mine. 

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! 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!

  5. Lovely card. If you hadn't mentioned that the wreath was a Christmas wreath, I never would have suspected. Well done.

  6. I think "Harvest Blessings" is the perfect sentiment for this time of year. When the air is crisp, we're crunching into an apple, watching leaves fall, and thinking ahead to Thanksgiving, it is just the perfect thing to send to someone. TFS! Lots to love here! Thanks for the inspiration!
