Verve Stamps - March Diva Inspiration Blog Hop


Welcome to Verve's March 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 put a spring in your step! 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 March challenge is Spring Has Sprung:


It's time to ditch the winter blues! Create a card that sings spring using inspirational quotes, pretty colors and florals or themes that celebrate new life. Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or blaze your own trail, just show us what spring means to you!

It's contest week over at Monday Mojo Sketch Challenge, MOJO #335, and another chance at a Verve-tastic prize!


It's a great time to stock up on your favorite Verve Stamps with the Spring Cleaning Sale!
I have waited WAY TOO LONG to add the Flag It and Banner Bundle Die Sets to my Verve stash!  I recently ordered them and having a ball with them!  What's been on your Verve wish list for way too long?!


I layered up a whole kit and kaboodle of some spring-themed papers, stamped the sentiment and butterfly from So Fluttery, then die cut the butterfly with the coordinating Flutterby Die.  The Banner Bundle and Flag It Die Sets helped to create a collage-style focal panel!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
