December Diva Dare ~ Day 7

 Favourite Things - December Diva Dare

Welcome to Day 7 of the December's Diva Dare!  Maureen here today sharing with you this month's dare entitled Favourite Things.  

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

This was the most difficult challenge for me!  Pick ONE favourite?  It's like asking me to pick a favourite child!  LOL  Many of my Verve cards were made for special people in mind and I didn't want to leave anyone out!  So here are the cards that I HAD to share once again :)


 This was the DH's Valentine card using No Matter What (original post HERE).


Next up is the card I made for a colleague who retired in March.  She was also Jake's grade 4 and 5 teacher.  (original post HERE). I used my MOST favourite set, Teachers Count.



The DH and I became grandparents this year for the first time.  This was the card I made to welcome our darling granddaughter into the world (original post HERE).  I think this Smallest Things Plain Jane  is perfect for a baby card.


This next one was made for a special woman I met in May, Linda Lantieri.  She is a leader in emotional regulation, the topic of my Masters capstone paper.  She had the good fortune of meeting Mother Teresa so I thought she would love this card with this quote from Kind Words (see original post HERE).


Last, but definitely not least, is the 7th anniversary card I made for the DH.  I love EVERYTHING about this card that celebrates our copper anniversary (original post HERE).  The sentiments are from Small Phrases and Feel the Sun
