Verve Diva Inspirations June Blog Hop

 grace

Good morning!  Several of us Verve Release Divas are joining our fabulous Verve Inspiration Divas to showcase some old Verve favourites and to reveal 2 sweet new Plain Janes that are being released today! My stamps arrived at the 11th hour (yesterday!) so I was able to create a little something with the new Grace Plain Jane.  Whenever I get a new verse or sentiment, I immediately put it up against the Verve Label Dies to see which ones I can use!  I liked the way this Plain Jane looked on the Classy Label Die.  I then added some All Aflutter butterflies to add a little more elegance.  Okay, now onto the card that was my backup in case the stamps arrived at the 12th hour…

courage

I chose this quote from the Blue Skies set.  It reminds me of another quote I’ve heard about Courage/Bravery.  “You can’t be brave if you’ve only had good things happen to you.”  I also wanted to make a sweet little wooden butterfly with the Flutterby butterfly from Chicks Rule and its matching die.  Speaking of which, a new Verve Sale starts today…all the dies AND their coordinating stamps!!  After the blog hop, make sure you head to the Verve Store and check it all out.  Thanks for visiting, now onto Teresa’s blog!!
