March Diva Dare - Day 5


Hi!  It's Charmaine and welcome to Day 5 of the March Diva Dare!! Here's how our Diva Dare works... following each release, we post a theme we dare you with, and you'll have two weeks to complete the challenge. During those two weeks, the release team will post their creations and tell you how they answered the dare!

This month we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Color Me Spring! Whether you are shoveling snow off of your sidewalks and only dreaming of warmer weather or you are already enjoying the first blooms of the season, this challenge is sure to put a spring in your step! How you interpret the challenge is up to you! Stay tuned to learn how you could win some shiny new Verve!!

This is how I answered the dare...

When I think of Spring I think of little baby peeps.  I used to LOVE when we would have an incubator in our grade school classroom with eggs in it.  I loved checking on the eggs every day to see how much bigger that "black dot" inside had gotten.  :)  And eventually seeing that first peck through the shell.  Those little peeps were so adorable!  So, I thought I'd make a little placard featuring MY little peeps.  :)

I used part of the sentiment from Chicks Rule, leaving off the "to one of" so that I was just left with "My Favorite Peeps".  I stamped it and then die cut using the Charming Oval Die Set.  For the names, I simply typed the names in a Word Document and printed them out, then die cut them using the Charming Banner Die Set.  I colored my peeps using Copic markers and added some bling to the name plates. 


Want to know how you can win some fabulous new VERVE GOODIES?
