Verve Stamps Inspriation Hop June 2014

Welcome to Verve's June Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's hopping time again! So climb aboard Destination: Inspiration for a fun trip through Verveland today. In addition to a comment prize hidden along the hop, we're debuting our June inspiration challenge as well! Play along for another chance to win!

Our June challenge is Winged Whimsy


Let your creation soar by featuring wings! Think butterflies, birds, feathers or related sentiments. Celebrate the beauty of flight! Whether you draw inspiration from the graphic or fly a solo mission, let's see some winged beauties!

If you have come here from Maureen's blog, you are right on track.  If you happened along the Hop, you can check out the Hop List below to get caught up.

My favorite winged image is a butterfly (no surprise there LOL).  However, after digging through my stash, I could not find any papers to match the inspiration photo - doubly sad as I just love humming birds!  MME's Lime Twist had a few of the colours, or variations thereof, so I went with it.

I'm still madly in love with this big butterfly image from Die Sidekicks, and the sentiment is from Blue Skies.  Keeping your dreams alive is so important!  Your heart is the perfect, safe haven for them to rest, until they can be pursued, so you can then soar and take flight into new chapters of your life.

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.
