Zva Creative August DT Blog Hop!

Hello friends! Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our August blog hop!  We are very excited to kick off another blog hop and to have you join us today!
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, August 25th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, August 26th.
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, August 27th 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!
My blog is the last stop on today's hop, but the blog begins here at Zva Creative’s blog so if you are just joining us be sure to start from the top. Enjoy!
Thank you for joining us!

P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on September 29th for our next Zva blog hop!

Hello crafty friends! CASE Study Challenge Blog is celebrating its fourth birthday & I'm here to help celebrate by creating a special card for their blog hop.

If you arrived from the blog of Kathy Racoosin, you are on the right path. If you are just joining in here you can find the start & hop details HERE.

Since CASE Study challenges are all about finding inspiration from others, we were asked to share something that we create and the inspiration for it. Lately I've been collecting vintage broaches. I just love them & I'm on the look out for one that is in the form of one of my favorite things... a bee. I'm just in love with the little creatures that help spread beauty and life through pollination. One day I'm going to find one! And that my friends is the source of inspiration & you can see my inspiration on Pinterest here, here and here. Aren't they gorgeous?

Here's a card I created that is inspired by those beauties...
This week's prize sponsor's are Poppy Stamps, Pretty Pink Posh, WPlus9, and The Twinery. Please note: commenting on all entries is compulsory for  you to be eligible  for the prizes CASE Study is giving away. The contest is open until midnight on the following Tuesday at 11:59pm.

I hope you have enjoyed the hop & Happy Birthday CASE Study!
