Verve Divas Inspiration Hop {October}

***Looking for the Sweet Sunday Sketch?  Click HERE***

Welcome to Verve's October Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to serve up some fresh inspiration with their Verve stamps! Leave some comment love along the hop spots for a chance to win a prize, then grab some stamps and play along with our October inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

This month's challenge is entitled Fall Fancy:


The air is crisp and the colors are warm – celebrate fall with a spook-tacular creation or a thoughtful thank you using Fall as your inspiration! 

I don't know about you, but fall is my absolute favorite season.  It lasts all of 3 seconds here in Colorado, seeing how we seem to go straight from 90 degrees to snow, but I love it nonetheless.  It's something about the crisp morning air and the smell of harvest, and pumpkin patches.  Mmm.  Love it!



I don't really have any pumpkin images from Verve, but I do have these beautiful Sprightly Sprigs, which I cut out in rich autumn colors.  I stamped the sentiment from Be Blessed in black and tangy orange ink, and then added a few accent stamps and rhinestones.


Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!

  5. Your colorful "Sprightly Sprigs" are terrific. We don't always have to use a pumpkin and your fall/harvest colors for the die cuts are just wonderful. Your sentiment is so perfect for so many occasions too!

    Lots to love here! Thanks for the inspiration!
