December Verve Diva Inspiration Hop

Well, it's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time for the Verve Divas. We love to get our Verve inky around here and share lots of inspiration. So pull up a chair and take a tour of some fun creations using some of our favorite VERVE StampsIt's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines.

The hop started over on JULEE'S Blog.  You hopefully made it here from super SARAH'S Blog.  My hope is that you'll take a few minutes and browse the entire hop so you don't miss a thing!
I loved this week's MOJO MONDAY Sketch (#322), so that was a great starting point for my card.  When's the last time you played?  Want to?  Check THIS out!  It's a contest week, so it will be more than worth your while to enter your creation. 

I have always loved this little Christmas Tree paper (older from Echo Park), and I knew it would look so fun with the Christmas Tree cut from Verve's WINTER FUN die set.  For the main panel I stamped the three sentiments from the BRIGHT SPIRITS stamp set, one on top of the other and then framed them using the ROUNDED SCALLOP FRAME die set.  Kind of hidden, you'll find the snowflakes were stamped onto the aqua band also using the Bright Spirits set, and then a little green heart border peeks out, cut from the SCALLOPED TRIM TRIO die set.  The perfect size star for the tree came from the STARRY die.  A sweet and girly Christmas card--my 13 year old (Lindsie) loves it! 

Ok, next stop on the hop is TIFFANY!  I'm sure she's got something Verve-a-licious to share!  Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win your own Verve goodies!  Meanwhile, here's a link list in case you get discombobulated along the way!
