December Diva Dare ~ Day 1


  Favorite Things - December Diva Dare

Welcome to November's Diva Dare!  This month's dare is entitled Favorite Things.  With the busyness of the Christmas Season upon us and the New Year quickly approaching, it's nice to take a breather and look back at what we've accomplished. 

So this month, we are daring you to share your favorite Verve creation(s) for this year OR create a new one with one of your favorite Verve products.  

I scrolled through all my 2014 Verve creations and could not get below five cards....sorry!


I adore Strong Anchor and the matching Nautical Die Set!  Such a great set for masculine cards.


Pink Power is one of my favorite sets released this year.  It has many encouraging and inspiring sentiments and the matching Ribbon Die is simply divine!  I went very girly with this card, which is a bit of a stretch for me, and I just love how it turned out.


This colour combination makes me smile, as does this fabulous flower image from Happy Place and the matching Happy Doodles die set.


I had so much fun making this masculine card using Wonderful Marvelous and the Starry Die Set. 


Last but not least is this card which just makes my heart go pitter patter.  The sentiment from Words of Wisdom stands for everything I believe in - speaking truth amid the status quo.  The the pink polka dotted flowers created with the Loopy Blooms die against the woodgrain just makes me happy :)
