Verve’s November Diva Inspirations Hop

teacherslivemaureenplut

Welcome to Verve's November Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time. We love to get our Verve inky around here, whether they're hot off the presses, or a little worn around the edges. So today you'll see Diva creations to inspire you with both old and new Verve!

I made this card a few weeks ago after my card stash was depleted at work…not that I’m complaining!  I sold many teacher cards so it was fun to bring out Teachers Count again!  I had just enough Truly, Madly, Deeply ribbon to make one final single bow…oh, how I love this colour!  I also used the flourish from Peace on Earth to frame my sentiment and fill up the empty space on the tag.  This is my go to flourish lately.

 

Make sure you visit all the blogs in the hop!  One lucky commenter along the hop will win Verve's October Release Collection! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the details.
