Groovin' and another chance to win!

Welcome to the third and final day of the Verve Previews! Today we're showing you samples of Feeling Groovy, which will be available at the Verve Store on Wednesday, June 25th.

From Cyndi Bundy:
Cyndi was our sketch challenge winner last month, and she won the opportunity to be our honored guest for this release. This is one of my favorite cards she totally cracked me up! Stay tuned to see all of her wonderful creations later this week!

From Amber Hight:

The sentiments in the new release “Feeling Groovy” are among my favorites released by Verve thus far! My husband will be deploying in the next week or two and this set is going to come in VERY handy for the next six months! The sentiment I chose for this card is one that I say to him often. We’ve only been married for four years (five in September!) so it’s not like we’ve been married long enough to say “if I had to choose again after all these years, I’d still choose you!”. The sentiment has a very different meaning to me. We’ve been separated for at least 3 months of every year for almost the whole seven years we’ve been together. This sentiment says to him that if I had known back when we got married how often we’d be apart, he’s still the one I’d choose. Okay, enough sappiness, I know you’d rather know what supplies I used to make this card, right?:)

Stamps: Feeling Groovy, Filigree Fantasy, Petals and Stems (Verve Visual)

Ink: More Mustard (SU!), Versafine Onyx Black

Paper: Papaya Puree Light and Papaya Puree Dark (Prism)

Accessories: So Saffron ribbon (SU!), Paper Piercer (SU!), Dimensionals (SU!), Star Dust Stickles (Ranger), Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder (Provocraft), Square Scallop Nestibilities (Spellbinders)

From Carole Burrage:
I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say
at least a couple hundred more times: Verve Visual has the BEST sentiments in stamping! I'm especially excited about the new 'Feeling Groovy' set -- so many great song lyrics in one nifty set. And the timing could not be more

We just got back from Las Vegas, and my sweet husband arranged for us to see 'LOVE,' the Cirque du Soleil's tribute to The Beatles. The show was phenomenal, and being huge Beatles' fans ourselves made it even more magical. I wanted to tell him thank you,
and how much it meant to me that after 15 years of marriage, he still takes the time to think "Carole would really enjoy this..." and make special things happen. So I paired this adorable Elzybells UK image that had yet to see ink with the very fitting 'I want to hold your hand.' Wouldn't you agree that there are few things in life that are sweeter than holding the hand of someone you love?

From Charmaine Ikach:
Being a musical person, I LOVED the Feeling Groovy set when I first saw it. I honestly cannot use one of these sentiments without singing the song that the sentiment is from! LOL I thought one of these folded sock hop skirts would go perfectly with the "I Want To Hold Your Hand" sentiment. Who needs a card with a recorded song when the sentiment makes you sing it yourself? :)

From Jen del Muro:

I love the sentiments that Julee (creative genius that is Verve) comes up with for stamps. Often they are fun and quirky, other times, just perfect that that "just because" card. I paired the flowers from the Feeling Groovy set with the "With Love, From Me To You" sentiment. I like that this particular sentiment can be used on a card to a relative, a good friend, for sympathy or to your love.
