Nostalgic Mojo Diva Hop!

Hi friends!  It's the first Monday of the month, which means it's time for a Mojo Monday contest with prizes!  Woohoo!  And since it's also the 5th of the month, it's time for a Diva Inspirations Hop!  Double woohoo!!



So I mentioned PRIZES!  Yep, play along with the Mojo sketch challenge this week, for a chance to win a Verve stamps set of your choice!  We'll have one winner for every 50 entries, up to a max of 7 winners, so I hope you can find a little time to get your Mojo on this week!  Especially since Verve just released brand new sets on Friday night and there are some fabulous new holiday stamps to choose from!

There's a big ole prize for the Diva Inspirations Hop, too!  Hop around to the diva blog posts linked below and leave a comment at each stop for a chance to win the entire new release from Verve!  Check out the Verve Blog for all the prize details.

About my card:  As you may have noticed, I went a little skewed with my panels (just for you Marisa!).  LOL  Actually, when I went to glue down the bottom layer, I dropped the panel and it stuck and I couldn't get it back up, so I just went with it!  For the Diva Inspirations Hop, I mixed a little old with a little new for this fun nostalgic Christmas card.  The tree and the sentiment are from the brand new Holiday Greetings set and I paired them with the present border from our previously released Borderline set.  The presents and the tree are both paper pieced using the same prints of City Sidewalks DP and I colored the garland and bows with some Spica glitter pens.  I finished by ruffling a little glittery black twill and adding a fun little bow.

Okay, now it's time to hop on down the divasphere to the next blog on the list...  Sankari!!!

  52. I love this card! I love it enough that I think I'm going to get at least one of those stamp sets if not both - talk about versatile. Love how you laid the panels a bit wonky, which makes them more interesting IMO. Lucky accident, dropping the first one. Love the ruffled ribbon, too. So many good ideas to pull from this card!
