April Zva Blog Hop Winners Announced

We'd like to congratulate the following FIVE ladies who won a prize from our design team member's blogs on April's Blog Hop! Their names will be found on the following blogs:

One winner from each of the 5 blogs will receive a Zva prize package worth $30.00. Congrats winners!
Before you go, I have a little more peach/white pearl Zva goodness for you (and a little more on the shabby side, as well):

I added some peach and white roses to a lace bow and tied them together with some white hemp. The sentiment is from Verve and I added some pearls to the tag:

I can NEVER get enough of these Zva pearl flourishes:

The brads are from Stampin' Up! and here you can see the detail on the vintage lace:

To make this bow, I folded over a sheet of chiffon fabric and messily cut off a strip. I then punched a hole in the tag, made a bow and added a sweet Zva pearl:

  6. Hi Andrea,
    Well I have had a lovely treat, I just got back from the cinema. As you know I don't get out very much these days, so it was nice and the cinema was almost empty, so even nicer - no pushing or queueing. Watched Battleship, the one Rhianna is in; well I think it was fabulous. If you think of the game battleships but with Aliens raining down from the sky and into the water, you have an idea of its plot.
    Anyway, on to your tag, well what can I say, you always due feminine so..... femininely...LOL!! This is really pretty and the paper is lush.
    By the way, I know you like shabby and vintage as much as I do, so I thought you might like to know of a blog where the creator offers wonderful FREEBIEs of papers, tags and postcards. I think you will be very surprised at how much the lady offers in he FREEBIEs page. She is a fabulous designer who fills her blog with awesome altered art also. It is Astrid MacLean at
    If you know of her already, I apologise, if not Enjoy.
    Big Hugs Linda x
