Diva "news"!!!

Hi everyone!
 
It started this way:  The Friday we were leaving for vacation, I was feverishly working on assignments for my blog that would be posting during vacation.  I opened up my email to find a note from Julee Tillman.  The VERVE diva herself emailing me???........what?  Seriously, I barely had time to read the information before we left.  So...during the drive to KC, I read the email again and again.  I was and am still just in shock!!!  Thank you Julee for truly making my day!
 

 
So....my news is that I'm a VERVE diva!!  I've joing the group of fabulously talented ladies over at Verve Stamps as a Verve Inspiration Diva!  You will be seeing Verve goodies from me throughout the month using my Verve stash to bring a fresh new spin on Verve that hasn't seen ink in a while!  (there will be new Verve thrown in there too!)  Beginning March 5, look for me to join the other inspiration Divas for the monthly blog hop!!!
 


So today, I have my card that is up over at Timeless Twine today using their fabulous twine.  My card uses wood butterfly veneers from Michael's (Thank you Erin for the heads up about these!) and I embellished them with Raspberry Lemonade Timeless Twine! An easy simple way to embellish these wood veneers is use twine for the body.  The fun sentiment is from Verve's Make a Statement set.
