May Diva Inspirations Blog Hop!

Welcome to the May Diva Inspirations Blog Hop! I’m helping out our Diva Inspirations team start your month off right with a little Verve inspiration!

divabloghop

Using this week’s Mojo Monday sketch and my new GRAND circle nestabilities, I’ve made a sweet 5 x 5 circle card.  I don’t own a Grand Calibur (yet) but the first 2 circles fit into my Cuttlebug and are perfect for making a larger round card than the regular nesties.  I’m using one of my first Verve sets today…it was also my first time purchasing a “whole release.”  The flowers and sentiments in Because of You still make me smile so it was a no brainer on which set to use for this blog hop, especially with Mother’s Day coming up :)  I just love layering the flowers in this set with different coloured papers.   

Now, I’m the last (but hopefully not the least!) on the blog list, so if you haven’t started from the beginning, make sure to go back and take a little peek at each of the fabulous blogs below for some Verve-alicious eye candy and you just might win some Vervey goodness of your very own!
