Verve Divas Celebrate World Cardmaking Day

 
Well, hello cardies!  Welcome to the World Card Making Day edition of the Verve Diva Inspirations Hop!  Along the hop this month we're debuting FIVE brand new Plain Janes that just hit the store today, so grab a drink and hop along to see a fresh mix of old and new Verve and maybe even win a prize! You can find out all the prize details and see the full reveal of the new Plain Janes over on the Verve Blog today.


For my card, I used the new So Sweet Plain Jane along with some older Verve sets.  I like the new PJ because you can color in those letters to customize it to your project--sweet!


Ok, ya'll don't want to miss out on any of the Verve-y eye candy, so here's the Master Hop List for today.  Don't forget to leave your comments along the way for your chance to win some Verve of your very own!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  When you've just gotten home from a Friday night high school football game and you have some last finishing touches to add to a card you need to post to your blog before going to bed, don't ask your husband to plug in your hot glue gun for you.  Then don't sit in your craft room, waiting for it to heat up.  You will walk into where your hot glue gun is only to find it not plugged in and your husband will be on the couch watching the televised version of said high school football game he just saw (from the press box while we were shivering in the stands no less).

Paper:  White, Smokey Shadow, Ripe Avocado (PTI), A Mother's Love (MME)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Lovely Marquee Die (a cut above dies from Verve), Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Copic Markers, Adhesive Rhinestones, Ribbon, Button, Divine Twine (TCP), Hot Glue, Jody Boosters
Finished Size:  A2

  1. Adorable card. Love how the sentiment fits into the lable from Love Story, and I just happen to have that set and die. Those flowers are my favorite also.

  7. Bright and cheery card! Great coloring. Maybe he didn't know what a glue gun was? So who won the game? Was he watching good highlights or screw-ups? Just kidding!
