First of all,  I am happy dancing and totally over the moon!  Today I am an offical Diva!  WooHoo!   I was so thrilled when Julee emailed me the information about the new Inspiration Team. This is so up my alley and what I do!  I look forward to working with all the other Divas and Verve stamps!
So, without further ado, welcome to the first  Diva Inspirations Blog Hop!  Each month the Diva Inspirations team will be starting your month off right with a little Verve inspiration!  You have a chance to win some Vervey goodness of your very own, too! We've hidden a little mystery prize on one of today's hop spots, so be sure to leave a little comment love as you hop around. One lucky commenter on the mystery hop spot will win a $30 gift certificate to the Verve Store.  The master hop list is at the Verve Blog. Just make sure you get to everyone on the list!  The deadline for comment entries is Saturday, February 5th. Also, after the hop be sure to check out Verve's February Sweet Sale!





For my card I am using Verve Love Flower and Bountiful Backgrounds stamp sets.  I am using(VLVFEB2011) week 1 sketch!  I am also using the colors from CRE84FN13.   I combinded some much loved October Afternoon Thrift Store dp.  To continue the patterned look, I chose to use the polka dot image from the Bountiful Backgrounds set stamped off a couple of times for a subtle background with my main Love sentiment.  I inked the love with red and rocked and rolled the brown.    I stitched and sponged my panels.  I added some gold pearls and finished with some dyed to match seam binding and a prima red rose!


Check out the rest of the team listed below! As always thanks so much for hopping by!  Enjoy the hop!

  102. Congratulations on joining the Divas! I never think to use this color scheme, but it always works and your card is beautiful with it's layers, reminds me of aprons from 40 years ago. Ack, I'm really showing my age here. LOL I wish I could find my old sewing machine to use on cards. I don't dare use my current one because I'm sewing things for my daughters early summer wedding and I don't dare dull the needle or gum it up.
