Verve May Diva Inspiration Blog Hop

bestparentsmaureenplut

Welcome to Verve's May Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time! This month we've got a fabulous challenge that's sure to take you on a sentimental journey! So in addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, you can play along with the challenge and link up your creation for a chance to win another prize!

Our April challenge is Font Focus:

May14DIHGraphic

Fancy fonts are all the rage! Let your inner wordsmith shine and make a gorgeous sentiment (or two or three!) the focus of your card. Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or take some poetic license of your own, just flash us some fonts!

Oh, you know I just adore mixing fonts :)  Hence, my little sentiment on an extra tab.  Julee uses mixed fonts on most of her sentiments so it was easy to create a card for this request.  As I announced on the last Diva Inspiration Hop, I’m going to be a bonus Grand”Moe,” so I thought I’d make a few Mother’s Day/Grandma’s Day cards :)

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines, and a little bit about our brand new Diva!

Absolutely love all the elements you used on your card. And that sentiment. How could I have missed that one in my travels? TFS!
