Verve Diva Inspirations Hop

lotofmerrymaureenplut

Welcome to Verve's December 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. So pull up a chair and take a tour of some fun creations using Verve favorites.

On my card today, I’ve used the stitched frame from Treasured Words and my favourite saying from Merry & Bright.  I love the word “Merry.”  I like to use it while describing happy, joyful people :)  The colour palette let me use an old, but fabulous felt snowflake from Stampin’ Up!  Remember those?  It’s also contest week over on the Mojo Monday blog so I’m using this week’s sketch, rotated 90 degrees {wink!}
