Today the Divas are dusting off some Verve favorites and putting on our monthly hop to inspire you with a fresh new spin on the stamps in our stash! 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 a $30 gift certificate to VERVE, 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 quicker-cheerer-upper, I grabbed a Verve set that I hadn't even gotten to ink up yet--Brighter Days. That's where the flowers, those cute arrows and the sentiments are from. I used the Sweet Scallop Tag Die and stamped it's outline with its coordinating set in red. The arrows are one of my new favorite dies from Verve and the flowers were cut out with the Scalloped Flowers die (happy happy happy to not hand-cut them!)
Ok, I've got some more crafting to get done before the premiere of SMASH tonight! I can't wait to pick up on that show again. What are ya'll's favorites?
Here's the Blog Hop line-up in case ya'll want to go back and check something out again. Next up is AMBER! Don't forget to leave comments on all the blogs for your chance to win some Verve-y goodness!

SUSIE Q-TIP: The flower was a little plain with just the red button and hemp twine bow, so I added a pop of color by punching a 3/4" circle to go under the button. Try it using whatever size circle punch looks good with your button size.
