November Verve Diva Inspiration Hop

theLordisCome

Welcome to our November Verve 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!

I’ve chosen to give some much needed inky love to two previously released Christmas sets, Richly Blessed and Star of Wonder. Oops!  I just noticed that the “the” is under the ribbon in my photo!  LOL  I was trying so hard to keep the ribbon up for the photo and then didn’t even notice it had fallen down again! I’m blaming those lovely little aqua jingle bells! HA!  I’m using this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.  It’s prize week, so you have lots of chances to win some fabulous Verve!  Can this Monday get any better?  Yes, it can…

…there's another great little prize involved on the Verve Blog 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.  Good luck!

For some reason my connection is slow this evening, and so your card revealed slowly. It was fun imagining what would be on that lovely background which looks a lot like angels in the heavens declaring the good news! Love all the choices you made ....definitely getting some pretty little jingle bells. :)
