Verve's October Diva Dare


Be sure to stop by the Verve Blog and play along with this month's Pink Power Diva Dare! I have used the Inspire Hope Verve stamp set and also played along with today's Viva la Verve, a great way top combine those challenges! I adore the entire release this month, I reach for the Inspire Hope the most, I adore the sweet leaf bracket with the option of adding the different flowers. If you have not seen the Pink Power(temporarily sold out) set, it is a must have too...the bald silhouette image is soooo inspiring! What a fun month this has been, I hope you will create something pink to share...sparkle & shine!

Hi folks, I have created a sweet tag for this weeks Simon Says Stamp Challenge, to use kraft. I have used a Ranger kraft tag, I used a big one and cut it down to make it a bit smaller. I stamped the holly leaves and berries using the Hero Arts Holly Jolly stamp set. I fussy cut the leaves and berries then added stickles to the berries for a littler shimmer. I die cut the medium tag from Simon Says Stamp and then stamped the sentiment, attached with hemp twine. I also added the wooden dots, which are kraft to me...*grin*. I cannot wait to see what you create this week....I luv using kraft and I know you will create some gorgeous projects....sparkle & shine!

Mojo Monday/MOJO368-Deepest Sympathy


 Hi friends, I am sharing my take on this weeks Mojo Monday sketch and I used the sweet colors combo from The Color Throwdown....these ladies know how to rock sum colors! Don't you think? I used the colors for a sympathy card and I am very happy with how it turned out, I created the sweet flower; I had a white printed fabric flower that I stained with Heidi Swapp spritz, I then added some SU kraft tulle, and then finished it off with a white paper flower and added a button to the center. I luv creating flowers, you can use so many different elements to achieve the perfect bloom. Happy Monday.....sparkle & shine!
