Happy 7th Anniversary ~ Verve Diva Inspirations Hop

anniversary777maureenplut

Welcome to Verve's July Diva Inspirations Hop. It's the 5th of the month and that means it's time for the Divas to serve up some fresh inspiration with their Verve stamps! Leave some comment love along the hop spots for a chance to win a prize, then grab some stamps and play along with our July inspiration challenge for another chance to win!

Our July challenge is Red, White and You:

Red and white are always classic, pair this gorgeous color combo with a color of YOUR choice! Make a statement or keep it muted, it's all up to you! Feel free to use the graphic as inspiration or not, we just want to see you flash a little red, white and "up to you" color on your creation!

In two days the DH and I will celebrate our 7th anniversary :)  The significance of this is that we were married on 07-07-07!  AND 7 happens to be my favourite number!  I thought the Red, White & You challenge would be the perfect opportunity to make a special, customized anniversary card.  Copper is the traditional gift for 7th Anniversaries so I made sure one of my sevens was die cut from an old scrap of copper I had (see, it pays not to throw old scraps out!).  So for a “copper” gift, we are going to treat each other to a little getaway here in BC…a night at the “Copper Room” for dinner and dancing.  We love that place!  This sentiment from Feel the Sun fits my love theme perfectly and paired with the Small Phrases “happy anniversary” stamp are a match made in heaven…just like me and Tony :)  Here we are 7 years ago :)

Hope you have a great anniversary. Love your card and seven is also my favorite number, so I think 7-7-07 was the PERFECT day to get married! Loved seeing your wedding picture too!

Wow that's a lot of 7's for you today - Congratulations! Thanks for sharing the picture. Enjoy celebrating together and may you be blessed with many more.
I love the card you've made and all the love and thought that went into the making of it. Love that copper 7 (yes it does pay to keep old scraps - that's what I tell myself when I look at all that I keep;))

Your wedding photo is so beautiful as is the anniversary card you've created. The sentiment is one I've not seen before, but I think it'll stay with me for quite some time.
