Well, I don't know about ya'll, but I cannot WAIT until the weather cools off and fall sweeps in. I want to open my windows and let some fresh air in, take Sage out more and take the girls to a park. With these 110 degree temps we've been having around here, no one can stand to be outside more than a few minutes before you feel like a baked cake. That little bit of dreaming inspired me to make this card for the September Diva Inspirations Hop for Verve! (And now I'd sure like a piece of chocolate cake, too.) Let's get on with the hop, shall we?
Our Diva Inspirations Team and a few special guests from our Release Team are here to start your month off right with a little Verve inspiration! Take a little peek at each of the fabulous blogs below and leave a little comment love for their Verve-alicious eye candy and you just might win some Vervey goodness of your very own!
For my card, I decided to once again mix a little old with a little newness from Verve. Since Autumn Splendor is the stamp of the month for September, I wanted to give it a little love, so I inked up a couple of my favorite leaves and used the Autumn sentiment from that set. I combined it with one of my newest sets, Tag Time, using the circle tag and "hello" stamps from it. It's a little on the clean and simple side, but I like it a lot. I plan to duplicate the tag theme in a Halloween card soon, too!
Here's a few details you won't want to miss:
