March Diva Inspiration Hop for Verve


Well, I can't believe we are marching right along into the first full week of March already!  Our kids are on Spring Break next week for goodness sake!  And yes, it's also already March 5th and the 5th of every month marks the VERVE DIVA INSPIRATION HOP where a bunch of us Divas get together and provide tons of Verve-alicious inspiration to inspire the aspiring!  Are ya'll aspiring?  Good, as long as you're not EXpiring!  Ok, it's late, sorry.  On with the show...

I hope ya'll made it here from my buddy Sony's blog, but if you didn't, head on over to the VERVE blog HERE and ya'll can do a run-through of the whole hop without missing anything.  As long as you're aspiring, you'll WANT to do this.  Teehee.


I actually made this card in February for my Valentine, Eric (I puffy heart him).  Then February got away from me, just like March will too, I'm sure, and I never had a chance to show it to ya'll here on my blog.  Good thing, too, because my life has been filled to brim lately and my time to stamp has become few and far between.  (I do see light at the end of the tunnel, thank goodness!)  Once again a little old mixed with a little new made for a fun little masculine Valentine's card, no?  I used the new Wings of Love and Twitterpated alongside the semi-older set, You and I for the main sentiment.  Both of the hearts are cut from Verve Dies--Wavy Hearts and From the Heart (little one).

Guess what?  YOU could win a little Verve-y goodness!!

So there ya'll have it...I'm the end of the line today for the hop.  I've enjoyed sharing with ya'll today and I hope you've enjoyed hopping along as well. Thanks for hopping!  Here's a full list of Divas for the hop just in case you'd like to go back and oogle the creations a bit more:

SUSIE Q-TIP:  The red strip on this card was looking a little too plain for me, so I stamped the words along the edges repeatedly to add interest.  Text is trendy anyway.
