Verve Stamps Diva Inspiration Hop - April 5th

It's the 5th of the month and that means it is time for Verve's April Diva Inspirations Hop. This month we've got a fabulous challenge that's sure to put a spring in your step!  In addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, you can play along with the challenge and link up your creation over at the Verve blog for a chance to win another prize!


Chevrons are the new polka-dots! Get groovy and use this popular pattern somewhere on your creation. Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or zig-zag off on your own, just show us some chic chevrons! 

If you have come here from Maureen'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 (see hop list below).

Started things off with MME's Six by Six paper pad and Verve's Chevron Love.   The sentiment is from this set, as is the wonderful chevron butterfly.   Lots of dies on this card too: All Aflutter, Wavy Hearts, Heart Quartet, and Arrow die.  Yes, I have am addiction to dies LOL, but it's all good wink, wink :)  


One lucky commenter along the hop will win a prize, so make sure to leave a comment on each of the participating Diva's posts to increase your chances of winning!  You can check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines.
