Happy Sunday and thank you once again for joining us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for another challenge based on scripture!
This week the ever lovely Linda chose the verse and the challenge. The verse she chose comes from the book of John 13:34 .
"I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another."
This is one of my favorite verses. For many years my husband and I worked in the Worldwide Marriage Encounter movement. We presented weekends and shared our story with thousands of couples who were striving to improve their already good relationships. This verse was and is one of the cornerstone verses that is used throughout the weekends.
I made this card with the verse in mind but also for my parents. Their 60th wedding anniversary is coming up and when I saw this stamp at TCM I knew that I needed it for their card. I loved the vintage look and the kiss is perfect.
My parents have a wonderful relationship and right now my dad shows his love through his 24 hour a day care for her. He LIVES this commandment - he is my hero! I have been so blessed with not only parents lifelong devotion to each other but also my in-laws with 67 years of marriage. Loving each other is more than just words to them - it is how they live - daily!
The challenge for this week is to use something new on your project - it can be a new product, technique, embellishment - even a color combo that is new for you - show us what you got!! The stamp was new and so was the flower.
