Mojo Inspiration

Hi friends!  It's Monday and time for a little MOJO!  {If you're looking for my CASE Study Blog Hop post CLICK HERE}.  Otherwise, hang tight because you're at the start of the August Diva Inspirations Hop! It's also a contest week over at Mojo Monday, so be sure to play along for a chance to win some new Verve. 
That's right, it's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Verve Divas to breathe new life into some much-loved stamps and dies. And there's a PRIZE up for grabs, so be sure to leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details and prize info over at the Verve Blog.


For my card, I was inspired by Teresa's Dare to Get Dirty challenge over on Splitcoast.   I changed one panel on the sketch to a heart, using a Sizzix die and adding a little stitched embossing down one side.  The papers are from a Valentine's pack of papers, but I love how they work for other occasions as well.  The sentiment and heart border come from an old favorite... Thankful Hearts.  I stamped them in a silver frame that I re-discovered in my crafting closet while I was looking for that Sizzix die.  A bit of distressing, an embossed background and some twine and bling finish the card off.

Alrighty, there's lots more crafty goodness to see along this hop, so I'm going to wrap things up.  Be sure to leave a comment at each stop for a chance to win some VERVE!  A gift certificate would come in super handy paired with the amazing sale going on this month at Verve!  {grin}

We're celebrating 6 years of VERVE this month with a huge sale! Your favorites are bound to be marked down, since all stamps & dies are 10-50% off during the month of August! Now that's something to celebrate!



Next up on the hop, is the fabulous Amy Kolling.
