Zva Creative February DT Blog Hop!

Hello friends! Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our February blog hop!  We are very excited to kick off another blog hop and to have you join us today. We hope you are inspired all of the beautiful work that we are about to share!
The hop begins at Zva Creative’s blogBe 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.

For this months hop, I wanted to create something a bit different. So, I used some canvas tags from Canvas Corp, covered them in gesso, moulding paste, Imagine Crafts sprays and inks... Zva blooms and bling... and i LOVE the outcome!! What do you think?? This is a little mini book... the inside is not yet finished, so I'll have to show you that another time! but I LOVE the effect the BLING has, don't you??

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, February 24th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, February 25th.
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, February 26th on Zva Creative’s Facebook pageWe 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!
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 Facebook page and “like” our page or leave a comment there to tell us that you stopped by if you already like us there!
