November Diva Inspiration Hop is Today

 
Welcome to our November Diva Inspirations Hop!  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.


I picked up the Bloom and Grow set with the lovely solid flower shapes and some of my favorite leaf sprigs too. Before putting the card together I played with my acrylic paints and created my own pattern paper that have the same flower and leaf shapes used on the sentiment panel.

I've used today's Mojo Monday Sketch #266 and since it's the first Monday of the month it's contest week!  You can head on over to see what the Mojo Makers have created and find out the details for the contest.

Have a great time with the rest of the hop!  Maureen is your next Diva hop today, and if you need the whole list I've got right here for you.

  11. I'm swooning over that corrugated flower and the pops of colour the flowers give. Fabulous card!! Sorry, I missed your late arrival to the party and forgot to mention you in my recap. Was typing it and after I posted it went back and saw your comment further down. So here is my late tribute to you for the recap :) Glad you were able to pop in for a bit.

    1. That corrugated flower was a giftie and dove into the package without figuring out the source. It's a frame set from Jillibean Soup.

      Ah, it's okay Marisa. I still got a great update when I arrived and sometimes it's okay to quietly arrive at a party. :) I can't wait for another chance to party in the forum. Hope it's soon!

  20. Funky, fun card you made. Reminds me of the cute little desk set I bought for my first job, back in 1970. I still have the flower shaped paper clip holder today. Its Bright yellow and orange, and the other pieces had green. Gotta love the 70's look.
