Love: Jeremiah 31:3

The last week in January is already upon us. I honestly do not know how time moves by us so quickly! Sunday means another challenge at  Stampin' Sisters in Christ and we are always so happy to see you.

Today our Lovely Linda is our challenge hostess and the scripture she chose is Jeremiah 31:3.
"The LORD appears to him from afar: With age-old love I have loved you; so I have kept my mercy toward you."(New American Bible - St. Joseph Edition)
Love - such a powerful word! Sometimes I think we overuse it. We say, "I love coffee", or "I love that card". I always end a phone conversation (or a text) with my family with a quick "Love you". Quick words - but read the above verse again - that is not a quick {Luv U}. That is an amazing love - like no other. How lucky am I to be loved like that - how lucky are you? Awesome!

The challenge this week is to create a card or project that is vintage. I think that all of us have a technique that is well outside of our comfort zone. Vintage is mine. In fact there have been times when someone tells me that I made a great vintage card and I did not even realize that it was. Hopefully this qualifies Linda! I truly did hand sew around the grey panel! I used 2 different Cuttlebug embossing folders. I colored with just a few Copics and some sparkly pens. I had the charm. 

Our sponsor this week is Designed 2 Delight, 2 digital images for you to download, print and color.
