November Diva Inspiration Hop

 
Well, life in Lilesland over the weekend was busy and fun.  Eric and I made a quick trip to Oklahoma again to go to Winstar with some friends (more like Losestar) on Saturday night.  Then Audrie had her last soccer game of the season yesterday which was followed up by a quick change of clothes and then the girls ran off with a photographer friend of mine for a sunset photo shoot!  The pictures turned out amazing--I'll share soon!  So I didn't have a whole lot of time to be crafty, but loved spending time with my family!


After everyone went to bed last night, I did get to relax and put this little Christmas card together for today's November Diva Inspiration Hop from Verve On Friday night, Verve released their holiday collection of stamps and today we're putting on our monthly hop to inspire you with a fresh mix of old and new! So grab a drink and hop along as we share a little Verve with you! There's a great little prize involved, too! A random commenter on one of the hops will win our entire new release, so be sure to leave a little love in the comment section as you hop about! You can find out all the prize details over on the Verve Blog today.


For my main focus, I used the new set, Merry and Bright which I think is my favorite of the 5 new sets released.  I just love the mixture of different fonts and the snowflakes in the set are perfect (although I didn't use them here).  Then for the little tree embellishment, I stamped the tree from the older Christmas in the Air set and cut it out with the Winter Fun die set from Verve.  

Oh and how about that sketch?  It's a really fun one--today's MOJO Monday Sketch #266!  Find all the info about playing along HERE!

Ok, I will leave ya'll for today with this link list of all the Divas who have something fun to share.  Don't forget to comment on all the blogs for your chance to win some Verve goodies!
