Anniversary Birds

On March 1st, Verve Visual will be releasing three new sets. Yesterday you got a peek of the set, Easter Elegance. Today brings another GORGEOUS set your way, Anniversary Birds. Today's samples are made by Amy, Lila and Jen.

From Amy Westerman-

My hubby and I are celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary in a few months and I can hardly believe it! Twenty-two years? Funny, I don’t feel a day over 25…..NOT!
Anyways, the good news is that I’ve got my sweetie’s card made already since I was lucky enough to have been asked by Julee to make a card using one of Verve’s newest stamp sets called Anniversary Birds. It is the most adorable set, with the most adorable little birds you’ve ever seen. I LOVE how I can make the birds appear like they’re kissing…awwww, isn’t that sweet? That’s exactly what I did on this card….the two little lovebirds are kissing, right there, front and center, for the whole world to see. I don’t think my sweetie will miss the message I am trying to convey to him with this card…that I love him dearly, and that being with him is the perfect way to spend a lifetime. Is that sentiment not amazing???????? It totally sums up in one fell swoop how I feel about my guy. I know I hit the jackpot when he asked me to marry him that fateful day—with this set, it made it really easy for me to tell him so! Be sure to put this new set on your wish list today!

From Lila Holgate-

As I started putting together this card, I found it would be the perfect invite to send friends for Scott and my 25th anniversary the end of April. It's hard, but yet rather easy, to imagine we've been partners for this long. We've shared both good and bad, raised two beautiful daughters and look forward to many more years together. Here's to 25 more years!!!

It's kind of funny in reading Jen's post - her parents celebrating 30 years together - I guess I could almost be her mother.... These two little love birds will appeal to both young and young at heart - a little whimsy goes a long way.

From Jen del Muro-
My parents are celebrating a milestone anniversary the first week in March. I have always looked up to them as good relationship role models. They taught me what love and to be loved really means. I thank them for this and this card is for them. Happy 30th anniversary Mom and Dad!
