December Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop Winners

Hi Verve fans! It's Julee here, popping in with a little winner announcement.  

But first, I thought I'd let y'all know both our Diva Inspirations and Viva la Verve challenges are taking a bit of a break. My plate is full with family and health issues right now and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed trying to keep up with all the things. We'll hopefully be back with some fabulous, fresh inspiration for you in a few months, but I don't have a date or a plan right now.  I always LOVE to see your creations, so please tag your Verve creations @vervestamps on Instagram or Facebook so I can come and take a peek when I have a spare minute.

Now on with the winners of our December Diva Inspirations blog hop and inspiration challenge!

Our December blog hop comment winner is stampfoldandrepeat
Winner chosen randomly from comments on Maureen's blog post.

And our December challenge winner is snazzyjj!

Congrats stampfoldandrepeat and snazzyjj!
Send an email to contests@vervestamps.com to claim your $30 gift voucher to the Verve store!

Thanks to everyone who played along in December!
Here is one last look at all of the entries:

Sale Extended and a Mojo Monday Contest

Happy January, friends! I'm just popping in to let you know that I've extended our sale through January 10. Here in Idaho, we're in the middle of a winter storm with more snow than we've seen in 30 years. School is closed yesterday and today, and one of my boys is sick with a fever and requires lots of holding. All of this means I have had no time to change out the website, so our sale continues.

Through January 10, save 35% off all current stamps and dies and 50% off all retiring products in the shop.  And save an additional 15% off your purchase with gift code SNOWDAY.  Sale prices and gift code valid on in-stock merchandise through January 10, 2017. Code must be entered to receive discount.

It's also contest week over at Mojo Monday! Come play along for a chance to win some Verve! We add a winner for every 50 entries, so the more the merrier. Hope to see you over there!

To get you started, here's the card sample I created with the sketch and the Faith Medley stamp set.
