Verve's May Diva Inspiration Hop - Font Focus


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:


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!

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!

Have you seen the new sketch at Viva la Verve this week?!  It's a goodie...a great way to whip out that hoarded washi tape!

I'm up on The Twinery Blog today, too, showing you how to make these fun Pom Pom Flower Centers with Caribbean Baker's Twine!  




To follow along with today's Verve Inspiration Hop: Font Focus, I combined sentiments from Hello Friend Plain Jane and Petals & Wings stamp sets!  The Wings & Petals Die Set and Dream Leaves Die Set set created a fun cluster and focal point, too! 


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage today!
