October Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop


It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!
There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) for an entry in the first giveaway. Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until November 5 to link up. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps aren't required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when we see them!


The crisp, cool change in the weather, brings thoughts of warm beverages and long crafting sessions.  This sweet little beverage nook has lots of hidden treasures to be inspired by.  Follow our color pattern, or take flight from the inspiration, you decide!  We can't wait to see what you create.
Click here to link up your challenge entries
Challenge deadline: Wednesday, Saturday, November 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

If you've come from visiting Julee, you're in the right place!!  I used the Floral Notes set along with the coordinating Floral Notes Die Set on my card.  I started off by using the latest Viva la Verve Sketch.  I LOVED the colors in the inspiration photo, so this card came together pretty easily.  The flowers were stamped, colored with Copic markers and then die cut.  I also add some leaves using the Sprightly Sprigs Die Set.  The finishing touch was the Shine Bright Sequins.  Next on today's hop is Christyne!!

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're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!
