WAW Valentine Blog Hop

I am so glad to see you are here for the Word Art Wednesday Valentine Blog Hop! Most of you know me from Stampin Sisters in Christ where we have weekly challenges based on scripture. For this special hop we are joining our new sister site Word Art Wednesday to celebrate Valentine's Day in this special way to share our love of the Lord. John 15:9 "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; now remain in My love." Great verse that says so much. Here is my card:

I used the verse from WAW for my card. Before I printed it out I stamped an old SU image of the praying hands on the card stock. Not bad lining that up! I then used a Spellbinder die to create the verse as the focal image on the card. I wound some ribbon through the lattice of the die. I used another Spellbinder die for the scalloped pink border. The pretty plaid paper is from GKD's valentine line. A few pop up black dots and a couple of stamped hearts finishes off the card. 
Your next stop on this hop is a visit to Paula. I am quite sure that there is a lot more eye candy to see there as with the rest of the stops along the way. If you arrived here by accident and want to start at the beginning of the hop then head on over to Word Art Wednesday where this hop originated. Be sure to leave comments on all the hops for a chance to win this great stamp set from SU. I heard that there are possibly some other prizes along the way! 
 
In order to qualify for the Grand Prize Drawing, you simply need to leave a comment on each blog on the hop list. The winner will be announced on both the WAW and the SSIC blogs on the afternoon of Tuesday, February 14.
 
I chose to follow the sketch from JUGS for this card. 

I hope you enjoyed this hop as much as we enjoyed sharing our "LOVE" for the Lord with you.

Miesje,

You know, this is the first time I REALLY looked at that view from your craft room - wow, lucky you!

Your card is fun, a nice departure from all the soft - the bold pink and plaids are pleasing (tongue twister haha!)

I'm praying for each of us as I visit every blog hop post and for our visitors as well. Have a blessed day!
