Zva Creative October DT Blog Hop!

    
Hello everyone!
 
It is hard to believe, but this is my last Zva Creative blog hop!  It has been a wonderful year working with the Zva staff and the uber talented design team.  Thank you all for your wonderful comments over the past year and I hope you will all stay in touch.
 
The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! Leave a comment there for a chance to win an extra prize package just for visiting the blog and telling us that you stopped by! 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. We want to make sure that they shine bright for you, so each designer was will be sharing a creation using a specific color or color combination on their blog hop project. If you like what you see you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....



 
Christmas is my favorite holiday and when I saw all of the beautiful papers and embellishments out there I couldn't resist getting started on my holiday cards. 
 
I created this card using the beautiful "Once Upon a Christmas" collection from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I used Zva Creative's Olive Pearl Flourishes (CRW-05CB-133) to accent the star in the center of my card.
 

 
 
Next I used a solid textured cardstock with ornament embellishments also from the "Once Upon a Christmas" collection.  I trimmed the larger ornament with my Ice White Pearl Pen.  I added two simple pearl chains (Olive - PEC-03CB-103) to make it appear as if my ornaments are hanging.

PRIZES!!!
 
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!

Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over, so it's important to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can along the way.

The Blog Hop starts today, October 29th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, October 30th.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 31st on Zva Creative's blog. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog on Wednesday.
 
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.

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 blog and leave a comment there to tell us that you made it there!


The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative's blog.
 
Your next stop is Carole Maurin.  Enjoy! 
 
Thanks for visiting with me today.
