Well, we are all moved into our new (temporary for the next 6 months) home and mostly unpacked. It's been a tiring few weeks with everything to do! We are supposed to close the sale on our old house by the end of the week and can finally get back to a routine (hopefully!). It really felt good to sit down and create, although I feel my mojo has "left the building", not to mention half of "it" is packed away, not to be resurrected again until we are in our new home.
so add some petal power to your cards this month! So in addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, you can play along with the challenge and link up your creation for a chance to win another prize!
The hop started over on Julee's fabulous blog HERE, and I hope you arrived from my friend, Sony's blog HERE. Baby, it's cold outside and a great day to indulge yourself in some Verve-y goodness, so hop along with us!
I finished up the card by using the SCALLOPED FLOWERS dies to cut the flowers out, then added a red ROUNDED SCALLOP FRAME. The hearts are from one of my favorite Verve dies of all time-HEART QUARTET. The sentiment is stamped with the CELEBRATION OF THANKS stamp set.
Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It'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.

SUSIE Q-TIP: Use your current stash and reward yourself with chocolate. Or a cookie. I have a paper pad that I love, but I find it hard to work with, so I further challenged myself to use it (I'm on a spending hiatus until we put our down payment on our new house, so I'm forced to use my stash and not buy anything new), hence the color scheme. I actually like it, though! Mmmm, Snickers come to momma!
