Verve November Diva Inspirations Hop

Verve Nov Insp Hop photo VSNovInspHop.jpg

Welcome to Verve's November Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Diva Inspirations Hop.   The Divas will showcase inspirations to inspire you with both old and new Verve!   

If you have come here from Charmaine's blog you are right on track.  If you just happened on to the hop, you can start from the top and work your way through - the prize is worth playing for!  Check out the Verve Blog today for all the details.

For my card, I combined this fabulous Ecclesiastes 3:11 Plain Jane with the butterfly from Each Day.  I just love this verse and it is always a good reminder to be patient for things (not one of my strong suits LOL)!  The paper is Kioshi by Basic Grey and I pulled the rest of the colours from it.  The card needed a little something, so I cut out and added two butterflies along the side and then tried my hand at a multi-looped bow.



Want to win Verve's ENTIRE October Release? Just 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 Christyne for what I'm sure will be a stunning display of Verve goodies.
