April Verve Diva Inspirations Hop......

 
Welcome to our Diva Inspirations Hop! It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Verve Inspirations Team 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 certificate to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details and prize info over at the Verve Blog.
 
This month we're also saying a fond farewell to Jen del Muro, as this is her last hop as a Verve Diva. She's been a part of the Verve team almost from the very beginning and although we're sad to see her go, we're so excited to see the things she has up her sleeve for the stamping world!

 I was recently sent this gorgeous Glitz {Hello Friend} 6x6 paper pad by a dear friend.  I LOVE it Jen.....thank you!!!  So here I paired this paper with flowers and a sentiment from the stamp set Lean on Me.  I wanted the flowers to stand out so I've used some big pearl brads that I've had in my stash for a while.  I love when I can use some of my "older" stash!
