Zva Creative April DT Blog Hop!



Zva Creative and my fellow Design Team members welcome you to our April blog hop! We are excited happy you are joining us and look forward to sharing our new work with you!

Today’s Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative’s Facebook page! Be sure head on over to check it out! 

Here's a list of participants (in case there is a glitch along the way):
Irene Tan 
Fabi Ormerod    

To create this card I stamped three flower and leaf images from Penny Black's Dahlias clear stamp set on white card stock and colored them using Anna Griffin's Dual-Tipped Watercolor Markers. After fussy cutting and layering the flowers onto the face of my card, I highlighted areas with ClearSnap's Smooch Illuminate. Then I added a sentiment from the stamp set in my new Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit and added Zva's new flourish and mini flower bling. 


Aren't these new for 2013 Lavender Crystal Mini Flowers just darling?  Don't worry, if you don't like purple they come in other colors too;) I really like them because they are the perfect touch to use as center of flowers.
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, April 29th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, April 30th.
***Prizes***
Hidden on FIVE of the designer’s blogs 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 this Blog Hop 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, May 1st 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 blog on Wednesday to see if you are a winner!

Men who sleep about are observed as "players" and this can be seen
positively quantity males. Ladies who sleep around are noticed as "sluts".

It appears sort of unfair, and sounds like a double common.
