Zva Creative February DT Blog Hop

Hello friends! Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our February blog hop!  We are very excited to kick off another blog hop and to have you join us today. We hope you are inspired all of the beautiful work that we are about to share!
The hop begins at Zva Creative’s blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way). 
As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals.  If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.


If you would like to play along with our design team, just follow along the blog path.  I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way!
The Blog Hop starts today, February 24th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, February 25th.
***Prizes***
Hidden on FIVE of the blogs along the way is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over. All you need to do is leave a comment on one post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, the more chances you will have to win. 
The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, February 26th on Zva Creative’s Facebook page. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva’s page on Wednesday to see if you are a winner!
We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize!  To increase your chances of winning:
* Comment to let us know that you posted on your Facebook page about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you "tweeted" about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you asked your local store to carry Zva creative products.  If they already do, that's fantastic, maybe you can suggest other products that they don't carry.
*Hop over to Zva’s Facebook page and “like” our page or leave a comment there to tell us that you stopped by if you already like us there!
The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative’s blog. Your next stop is the the blog of our newest guest designer Emilia Stammler. Enjoy!
Thank you for joining us!

P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on March 31st for our next Zva blog hop!

Hello all! Hello Cath!

Welcome to a wonderful day, where many, many inspired crafty souls are celebrating one fabulous lady, Cath Edvalson! Cath has been an inspiration to many through the Moxie Fab World and we are all sad to see her leave, but want her to know how much all of her work there has meant to us. So we are saluting her today with the blog hop to say thanks and...


Cath, I will certainly miss my daily dose of Moxie Fab World from you! I never would have considered myself Moxie Fab before meeting you and MFW. Thank you for showing me (and all of us there) that we all can be Moxie Fab. You are one inspirational lady and a great teacher:) Big Hugs!!

Ok, so its time to hop on! You next stop is the blog of Erum Tasneem. Enjoy!

Warm Autumnal Thanks Card


Hi friends! How is everything going with you? Lately I've been finding myself spending an awful lot of time outside since we have been having such a warm and beautiful start to fall here. Grand is an understatement when it comes to describing our autumn. Its the kind of weather just makes me cozy, relaxed and giddy inside all at once.

I love these quotes about fall. I connect with each & wish I could express my feelings about this time of the year so eloquently. I hope you enjoy them.


“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” 
― George Eliot

“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.” 
― Nathaniel HawthorneThe American Notebooks

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” 
― Albert Camus

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” 
― Henry David Thoreau

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” 
― Lauren DeStefanoWither

Which quote to do like best? Do you have any favorites that you could share?

Since weather is what inspired the card that I created here, I thought I'd share it. I'm never as inspired as I am in the fall to create. How about you? What season inspires you to get crafty?
To create card:
1) Make card base that measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" from white cardstock.
2) Cut woodgrain cardstock (warning: this cardstock is HIGHLY addicting) into a rectangle that is slightly smaller than face of card. Lay stencil on a portion of cardstock and sponge acrylic paint through it. Carefully remove stencil and allow piece to dry. Stamp script.
3) Mat painted and stamped cardstock on black cardstock and adhere to face of card.
4) Cut/emboss label die and stamp sentiment. Add brads. Adhere to card with foam tape.

Products used on card:
