Verve October Inspiration Hop

Verve Oct Insp Hop photo VerveOctInspHopPicA.jpg

First and foremost, Happy World Card Making Day!!  How fabulous to have a day which celebrates our beloved hobby :)

Verve is celebrating in fine form today with the Verve Diva Inspirations Hop!  It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time.  Along today's hop you'll see some fresh new ideas for some beloved older sets, as well as some fantastic pairings of our latest release with existing sets.  It's sure to be a treat, and we've got treats to give away, too! 

If you have come from Tiffany's blog you are right on track.  If you just happened on the hop, you can get the full hop list below.

For my card, I used this week's Verve sketch and the wonderful Psalm 46:1 Plain Jane.  Oh how I love this verse!  Paired it with some old Stella and Rose paper by My Mind's Eye which has delicious fall colours in it and a few embellishments finished things off nicely.


Want to win Verve's ENTIRE September Release? Jut leave comments on all of the blogs on today's hop to be entered in the drawing!

So let's get hopping!  Below is the full hop list if you need it, otherwise just hop on over to the oh so talented Teresa, for what I'm sure will be a stunning display of Verve goodies.
