My hands, they were strong, but my knees were far too weak...To stand in your arms without falling to your feet...

Hey, y'all! How are ya? Happy March and welcome to the Verve Diva Inspirations Blog Hop. I know, I know, I have totally gone missing on y'all...please forgive me! We have been doing very well...some new and exciting things are going on in my world, so come back soon and I'll tell ya about it! Right now, though, it's time to party!

Our Diva Inspirations team is here to start your month off right with a little Verve inspiration! Bounce around to each of the fabulous blogs below for some Verve-alicious eye candy and you may just win some Vervey goodness of your very own! We've hidden a little mystery prize on one of today's hop spots, so be sure to leave a little comment love as you hop around. One lucky commenter on the mystery hop spot will win a $30 gift certificate to the Verve Store! The deadline for comment entries is Saturday, March 5.

Here's the card I created, using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for this week and Heather's Totally Hues color challenge #2.




I've been wanting to use the Sweet Treats set, so I pulled it out along with the coordinating Classy Label Die. The sentiment is from Birthday Bash. Here's a close-up:



A couple of disclaimers...my camera HATES Melon Mambo cardstock. I'll try to get a better pic in the sun tomorrow. But I promise it's not as scary as it looks! *grin* Also, the little resin rose (isn't it cute?!) is white. I promise, it really is. But since it's transparent, I think, well, I have no idea why it looks yellow. Just trust me.
ETA: Here's a pic with indirect sun...PERFECT!! So sorry for the other one!

Anywho, here's the list...don't forget to leave some love for all the girls! Next up is Sony, and I'm sure she has something GORGEOUS to show you!

I hope y'all have a fabulous day, and I promise I'll be back...PINKY SWEAR!

Love it! I like the little bit of sparkle, and that you put the label sideways. I've held it up that way a few times, wanting to fit a particular sentiment in, but couldn't figure out how to make it look "right." Thanks for crafting outside of the box!
