Endless Love

Hey everyone, sorry if the side bar and background images are messed up today, I am working on fixing that with photobucket.

Here's a fun stamp from Queen Kat stamps called Endless Love. It just makes me think of a couple who spent their whole lives together and died in each other's arms.  I colored up the roses on this image in yellow and then added some yellow flowers.  I am using background paper from Carta Bella.


Here's a fun question for the day, what's the longest married couple you know?  We just had a couple in my church, they have been married 65 years!! WOW.  But if I am picking like immediate friends and family, hmmmm, I guess my parents are over 42 years now.

How about you?  do you know any Endless Love in your life?  I just saw a family member (on facebook) who wanted to say that love never lasts.  Ahhh, how sad of her to think, she's only 17.  I have been with my sweetie John for 16 years.  Let's show her how really endless love can be!

Cheers, Holley

I love this stamp! Seriously need to get it. I have known several older couples well over 60 years...including my grandparents.

I think a lot of people these days don't really understand what love is. It really isn't a fuzzy warm feeling in your gut, although it usually starts that way. Choosing to spend your life committing to be with someone, through thick or thin, no matter what is really love. I have chosen to do that, and believe me, there are days that fuzzy warmth is NOWHERE to be drempt of! lol I understand too though, that it will pass. And that resentment is a relationship killer!

Have an awesome day Holly!

Skull card, but a nice rousing and beautiful!
I'm talking about myself, and when I was married.
Exactly 37 years, until my husband fell down next to me, had a heart attack.
His death is now seven years.
Now today comes two months my son died of a heart attack as well.
How sad, but life must go on.
Hugs Kaija<3

Don't get me started with those who don't thing love lasts. Maybe the infatuation part but love is endless. With that being said, my hubby and I have been married 21 years this year and we dated for 7 years before marriage.

I love your image.

Glad you are here to share your art!

Faye said...

I didn't see the marriage question. Almost 32 years for me!

That's a very interesting image and very thought provoking. My parents have been married for ever. I've not had my first anniversary yet!

I love this style card! After all I am a Bombshell girl and this is just one of my favorite styles,old school tattoo style.
I agree with your 17 year old family member...after two failed marriages I don't believe in it anymore....
But have tp say the grandparents of my second husband were married for 61/62 years!

Linda Simpson said...

Another fabulous card Holley! How sad for this young girl. I have been with my Rick now for nearly 19 years.

Pat said...

I have loved many times, always my husband of 37 years! Love endures, if it really were love.

ionabunny said...

Great card. 17 year olds think they know everything. How sad she is so cynical already. She has a lot of living to do. My parents are celebrating their golden wedding anniversary next month. 50 years, that's pretty amazing.

Ellis said...

I have two former colleuges that have been with their hubby'

A friends parents have been married 45 years. Love the skull card!

cebelica said...

Sure love can be endless. My grandparents have been married for nearly 60 years and they are still very happy together.
I like the flowers you added on the sides of your card. I think they make a nice finishing touch.
Hugs! xx

thinkscrap said...

This image reminds me of the notebook. My parents were married 56 years. Petty sure that we knew a couple (back when I was a child) that celebrated 74 years!

rovianne said...

Oh so lovely. Married for 18 years myself and still in love. Both parents also still married to their first spouse.
Sometimes I think people give up to easy.

Natalie said...

My great-grandparents where married 76 years. They where both almost 100 when they died.
Can´t imagen such a long time. My parents are married 41 years now. Even that is such a long time I think.

Vickie Kertz said...

Another cute composition. My mom and dad were married over 50 years. We have been married 27.

Susan T. said...

Love the card and the sentiment. My in-laws have been married 61 years- we have been married 35 years.

Nikki C said...

Fantastic card you've made I've been with my DH for 22 years now and have enjoyed everyone of them :) hugs Nikki

Linda Wickwire said...

Oh my gosh I wasn't expecting the skeletons!! lol

My grandparents and parents were both married over 50 years.

Hugs,

Larisa said...

Nice card!
well, I was married for 25 years before my ex- decided it is enough and we have to get divorce just because all of his friends did the same. I was shocked with his argument, but I said it is ok if he needs to be free. So I don't believe in long love anymore... sorry.

That's a very deep stamp Holley. And you've colored it beautifully.
hugs,

Christine said...

What an unusual card. It shows that love is endless.

Hlora said...

I dislike the skulls absolutely! Not my theme at all...
Oh, the happy family life is so rare... I wish I had it)))

riliska said...

Nice job Holley!
You always have so nice questions to discuss about))) I am a happy married lady for 12 years now) Thanks you gave me an opportunity to count up this))

Kathy said...

My in-laws had just celebrated 71 years when my MIL passed. She was just 17 when she married. It was young love that turned into a long and lasting love. I guess tonight is my night to talk in song lyrics, maybe Endless Love provoked this reaction! Anyway, the card is nicely done.

Shelley said...

Wonderful skeleton image, I love it! Horrible me, I can't remember how long my parents were married. Had to be at least 68 years, maybe more. In our {boomers} parents and grandparents times, people just didn't get divorced. There was quite a stigma attached to it.

lora said...

wow1 cute card Holley!
My parents were married for 47 years, unfiortunately Dad died 13 monthes ago, mom and all of us do miss him...

Josephine said...

Love the sentiment!

No lengths like I've seen other people mention, but my parents were married for almost 40 years when my dad died, and my oh and I have been married for almost 28 years.

Betsy said...

My in-laws have been married for 63 years. What a wonderful example they are to our family!
Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Trish said...

Hi Holley,
My parents were married for 50 years before dad Sadly passed away. My hubby and I have been married 36 years and I'm more in love now than ever!
Hugs,

My Dad and Step-mom. They were married for 38 years. Sadly we just lost him though.

Longest married couple I knew was my in-laws at over 50 years, until my father in law passed away. My mil is lonely. Audrey r in austin

Kim said...

Cute card. That's said that someone posted love never lasts. My parents will celebrate their 55th anniversary this May and I will be celebrating my 19th in May as well. I agree the divorce rate is very high, but if people would work at a marriage, not rush into marriage, it might just last 50+ years. ;-)

Gail Behrle said...

What a great couple card. The yellow flowers are great. My parents just celebrated 65 years.

Sue H said...

Well there is love at first site! So I've been married for 33 years, so yes love does last forever!!!

alethea said...

What a fun card! Love the skeletons!! I'm not sure how long my Auntie and Uncle have been together but their oldest child is 43 so that is probably the longest I know of... everone else have divorced one two or three times..lol. Hugsxx

Gemiel said...

What a fun image...reminds me of our wedding vows...til death do us part. We had a couple at our church that was married 70 years before the wife passed away a couple years ago.

I love this.

kai wong said...

Love does take work. And for it to work, it needs a generous spirit from the couple to always be able to ask for forgiveness and to always be able to forgive each other. When that is present in a couple's marriage, then love is endless. Very thought-provoking card...I really like it. :)

Carol said...

Super cute card! I have friends that have been married for 64 years.

postalorphan said...

Love this image - too fun! My parents have been married for 54 years, which is the longest I know of off the top of my head. DH and I are coming up on 24 years this summer.

ShersL84bed said...

Not one of my fave digis, but the card turned out cute.

My husband and I are the couple that I know that have been married the longest. 24 years on the 17th of this month.

Barb S. (FL) said...

Nice card but not one of my favorites BUT everything about it is great...

Carmen M. said...

Aww the classic love story :)

Karenladd said...

Ha ha...this card just made me giggle! So cute! As for longest married couple...that would probably be me and my hubby....34 years and still smiling!

SHartl said...

This image is a crack up! I like whimsical quirky images and this one surely is all that! So, my parents have been married for over 30 years so they would probably be the ones!

Bhawana said...

so cute.... me n my husband know each other for 11 years now..:) feels great.

Maroeska said...

This one really made me smile. It's cute and a bit scary at the same time. Nice done!

Judith Perry said...

Not my fav - but I do like it, especially like that you used yellow roses both on the picture and as am embellishment. Yellow roses are my favorite roses.

Charlene Mitchell said...

Both sets of grandparents were married over 60 yrs. Both grandfathers passed on now but that's a long time!!

DJ said...
