I've Got a Diva-licious Challenge For You!

That title just makes me want to say, "Yo, dog, check it out!" for some reason. So it's my turn to be the hostess with the mostest over on the Verve Member Forum and present the third installment of the "Meet the Divas Challenge"! Here are all the details and I hope you play along. Head over there and I've got a little chat thread going where you can ask me all those burning questions you've always wanted to know about me! I know you have a ton, but try to keep it bearable for me, as I don't plan on being on the computer ALL day!! Just kidding!!

I thought about what my challenge should be for a bit and decided to pick something that takes me back to my "crafting roots"! Sewing was my first "craft" and I actually started sewing when I was 6 years old on my grandmother's electric top of the line Singer sewing machine (I put in electric so you wouldn't think it was a treddle type, as I'm not THAT old yet--just 41!). Since I know not everyone has a machine to sew on their cards with, I thought,
"Button, Button, Who's Got the Button?" "SEW", that's the name of this challenge. Use buttons on your cards. But(ton) to further challenge you, use at least 3!!! If for some reason, you don't own any buttons, just pull some off your shirts and you can sew them back on later. Just kidding! You can make your own out of paper! Punch them out with a circle punch and put 2 holes in the middle with another hole punch--easy!

Use Keywords: MTVD03, Verve

Oh, and I did mention it was worth your while, right??? How about $15 in Verve bucks? Each challenge will be posted on a Thursday, and you'll have until the following Wednesday, midnight Eastern Time (10:00 MT) to upload your project. Using Verve stamps is not required, but we appreciate it if you have them! (if not, GET some!--teehee!!) A random winner will be picked, and the winner will be announced Thursday morning, just in time to play again! Sounds fun, right?

So go forth and stamp and feel free to ask me some stuff! I'd love to see what you want to know about little ol' me!??!
