Hello friends,

I created another card for the Verve Stamps Diva Dare "Tag, You're It" challenge.  I used a new embossing folder from Michaels.  It's got very pretty snowflakes.  I thought it would make the perfect touch for the card.  I created the tag and Poinsietta from a file from the Silhouette Store.  Added a little bling to both the Poinsietta and snowflakes.

I'm still playing with Verve Stamp's, Poppy Birthday stamp and dies.  When I first came across their blog, I was intrigued by this beautiful card created by Julee Tilman from  I cased her card with some minor changes.

Today, was the perfect day for crafting.   I took out my new stamps from and created another card for their October Diva Dare "Tag, You're It".  For this card, I used the stamps from their recent release:  Poppy Birthday stamp and die and Psalms 94:18 Plain Jane stamp.  For the tag, I used a file from the Silhouette Store and used a scrap of paper from a Stampin' UP!'s designers paper.  I added just a small bling to the poppy flower.  I love this stamp set so much and can't get enough of it.  I invite you to visit their blog and store.  There you can see the amazing and talented creations by their amazing designer team.  Thank you for stopping by, have a wonderful and blessed week.

Recently, I came across this awesome blog and visited their online store. Upon seeing the awesome stamp sets and dies they sell, I was in love with their beautiful collection.  I visited their blog and could not stop reading the awesome posts and challenges they do. 
I read about the Diva Dare "Tag, You're It" Challenge, so I ordered a couple of items from their recent release.

 For the tag I used:  Verve Stamps: Poppy Birthday, and Psalm 94:18 Plain Jane.  Dies:  Award Winner Trim Die and the Build a Poppy Set.  I also used a few sequin's from their Pastel Sequin's Mix.  Paper used was from Stampin' UP!.  

I enjoyed creating this tag and I especially loved the verse.  Often times, we feel that we have lost the battle but He is always right there next to us, loving us and upholding us.
