Verve Diva Inspirations Blog Hop (and Happy Birthday Canada!!)

canadabirthday

Good morning dear friends!!! There’s a whole lot to celebrate today!!  I’m helping out our Diva Inspirations team start the month off right with a little Verve inspiration! 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! It’s a month of birthdays over at Verve PLUS it’s Canada’s birthday too!!  Wahooo!! She’s 144 today!!  I have an easy way of remembering her age…100 years older than me minus a year ;)  I always like to post a little patriotic card on Canada Day so I added a little fun “eh to zed” (translated A to Z) by typing it out in Word, then stamping the classy labels stamp over top of it before die cutting.  It was soooo easy to do this with a clear stamp and the positioning system Julee has created for the dies.  A perfect cut!!  Then I added my beloved lightly stamped flower from Dream Big for a little something, something :)  But the whole card was really inspired by the fun maple leaf ribbon I picked up at Michaels last weekend.  OH,I just love berry sorbet with red. I added a bit more bling today for all the fireworks we’ll be seeing throughout the country tonight!!  I think this would be the perfect card for a July 1st birthday or to wish any friend from far away a happy birthday from Canada!  Have a wonderful day!! I’m officially on holidays now so it’s like my New Year’s as well!!  Woot, woot!!  Okay, onto the rest of the blog hop and the details of all the Verve excitement…
