Zva Creative May Design Team Blog Hop



Zva Creative and my fellow Design Team members welcome you to our May blog hop! We are excited about month's hop 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! 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.


Each Zva designer has a schedule of the color they are to feature
each month and for me, it is black.  Because I typically use 'partial' flourishes
on my cards, I am always trying to 'think outside of the box'  I certainly did
that with the flourish I feature today, as this is one that actually is
the 'feathers' of a peacock turned upside down.

When I thought of the perfect sentiment, I couldn't help but think
of ocean waves or 'sea billows' and this verse from The Craft's Meow
was a great fit.


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, May 27th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time Tuesday, May 28th

***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
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!

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:
