Well, not only does the first of the month mean new sketches and challenges all over the place, but it also means it's time for the October Diva Inspirations Hop from VERVE! Our Diva Inspirations and Release teams 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!
Here's what I've got goin' on for ya'll today--A Mary Engelbreit special! LOL! Not really, I just thought it resembled such after I finished it with my smattering of four different patterned papers and colors and all. This card is actually a Viva la Verve special! It's for October's first sketch and I love it! I used one of my new favorites, the Words of Wisdom set. That mix of fonts is perfection and is totally VERVE at its best! I added a couple of cute flowers with the Loopy Blooms Verve Die, layered a couple of times and embossed on the red one with an embossing folder from SU! that I can't think of the name of. If it were me, I'd name it "paper towel".
Anyway, I've got someone in mind for this card that needs a little "pick-me-up". Who have ya'll picked up today?
Ok, keep calm and carry on with your hopping onto Charmaine's blog HERE after ya'll take a gander at all the info below.
