Verve December Inspiration Hop

It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings! You have until January 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

Our November challenge is Cup of Kindness

Everywhere you look this time of year there's a flurry of color. Shiny ornaments, twinkling Christmas lights, window displays decked out in the merriest of brights. And not to mention all the sweet little wassail, hot cocoa, tea and coffee cups all around. So this month we're challenging you to share a cup of kindness with us. Get inspired by the graphic or blaze your own color trail, just show us some colorful creations!

Click here to link up your challenge entries
Challenge deadline: Tuesday, January 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

If you have come here from Maureen's blog you are right on track. If you just happened upon the hop, you can check out the hop list below to get caught up.

I used Julee's newest digi set called Cup of Kindness (a free download until December 25th!).  Love the sentiments and font art in the set and of course, the wonderfully decorated cups.  Just "had" to use the one with the snowflake on it- happy sigh :)     The sentiment is from the same set and I added some pops of red for a touch of Christmas in the midst of the pastels.


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!

Very sweet card - love the cups mixed with that sentiment. I had to give lots of cups of kindness the other day when our coffee pot broke at work and the early crew were getting restless - I had to zip over to Starbucks to stop the riot! LOL! Many hugz, Marisa.
