Rustic Winter Diva Insirations 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 November challenge is Rustic Winter

The days are turning cold and the splendor of fall is changing to the magesticly rustic beauty of a winter woodland. This month we're challenging you to bring a little bit of that rustic winter to your creations. Follow the graphic or blaze your own trail, just show us your rustic winter creations!

With a 50th anniversary party last weekend for my in-laws and a hubby with bronchitis I didn't get a chance to make a second card for the hop.  Instead I'm posting this re-run of one of my all time favorite Christmas cards.  I think it perfectly fits the rustic winter theme!

Thanks to everyone who played along this month!
Here is one last look at all of our Black White & Glam linky entries:
October always has a bit of glamour and intrigue to it. A stroll through the craft store this time of year brings visions of glitzy pumpkins, gilded candelabras and rhinestones galore. So this month we’re challenging you to to get glamorous with black, white and metallics. Use the inspiration graphic or go off on your own tangent, just share a little bit of glam with us!

Alrighty, that's all for today.
