February 2014 Diva Dare - Day 4

"Perk Up", February Diva Dare
Welcome to Day 4 of the February Diva Dare!  It's Maureen and I can't wait to share my take on this month's "Perk Up" dare!

What we're daring you to do this month is make a card or project to perk someone up, whether it’s with a warm beverage or just a heartfelt sentiment to brighten someone’s day.  No shortage of options as Verve has some wonderful coffee and tea sets as well as a plethora of uplifting/heartfelt sentiments.



 This challenge was easier said than done.  As I looked through all the beautiful Verve sentiments, I found it very difficult to choose just one.  However, I finally settled on the poem I love to use on graduation cards.  It's from the Believe set (on SALE right now!) and the little "be you" is from Words of Wisdom.  I've accented the card with buttons, twine, a resin flower, my favourite little journal tab, a doily, and some sweet little sequins from the Pastel Sequins Mix (on SALE right now!). Are you ready to play along?


Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, February 26th.  Entries must be posted 2/7 or later,include at least one Verve product, a warm beverage or heartfelt sentiment, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 2/26/14.   

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

Win a $40 Gift voucher to Verve Stamps! Take our "Perk Up" Dare and link up your card (created February 7th 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 "Perk Up" 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 February 26, 2014.

Winners will be announced on February 27, 2014. 

- Go forth and get inky! We DARE you! -
