September Diva Dare ~ Day 9

Hello friends! Maureen here and it's my turn to share how I answered this month's Diva Dare!

So what we're daring you to create this month is a card or project using inspiration from a tic-tac-toe board. For example: x’s and o’s, hugs & kisses, squares, circles, grids, you get the idea


I didn't know how to use this fun crossword patterned paper until this month's Diva Dare!  I just love the soft green, blue and aqua colours and thought it would be a great background for a love card.  I pulled out Love Notes, the Scroll Plain Jane and both Jotted Heart and Scroll coordinating dies.  A crisp white doily and some soft white seam binding from the Signature Collection make a perfect canvas for this timeless scripture quote, IMHO :) 


Here's some info on how you can play along...

Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, September 25th.  Entries must be new (posted 9/6 or later), include at least one Verve product, include inspiration from a tic-tac-toe board, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 9/25/13.




During this month's Diva Dare, there are 2 prizes up for grabs!

Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our "Tic-Tac-Toe" Dare and link up your card (created September 6th or later) to the linky widget below to be eligible to win.  One participant will be randomly selected to win the gift voucher.  You can enter as many times as you like, but each card needs to be in a separate post.

Win a set of your choice! For another chance to win some new Verve, leave a little comment love on our design team's "Tic-Tac-Toe" Diva Dare posts!  One lucky commenter will win a Verve stamp set of his or her choice, so be sure to tune in each day!  Comment deadline to be entered in our prize drawing is September 25, 2013.

You can link up your take on the dare here.

Winners will be announced on September 26, 2013.
