Cup of Kindness Inspiration Challenge and Hop

Hi Verve fans!  It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes... check out and comment on the design team's blog posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings! Be sure to scroll down for all the challenge details and the master hop list!

Our December challenge is A Cup of Kindness

Everywhere you look this time of year there's a flurry of color. Shiny ornaments, twinkling Christmas lights, window displays decked out in the merriest of brights. And not to mention all the sweet little wassail, hot cocoa, tea and coffee cups all around. So this month we're challenging you to share a cup of kindness with us. Get inspired by the graphic or blaze your own color trail, just show us some colorful cups of kindness!

Our theme this month coordinates with the Cup of Kindness digital set
we're giving away for a limited time.  There's no requirement to use it for the challenge, but if you do, I hope you have fun with it!

My card is a repeat of my Mojo Monday card this week. (It's contest week, so be sure to play along with the sketch for even more chances to win some Verve!)   I'm totally loving the new Cup of Kindness digi and had a bunch of fun using some fun colors on this wintry card.
