Reflected Love: I John 3:18

Hello friends, welcome once again for a challenge based on scripture at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!



Helen is our challenge hostess this week and brings us the  verse from 1 John 3:18.

"Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other, let us show the truth by our actions"

I fell in love with this image, the look of love in the girl's eyes speaks volumes. It is amazing what others see in our eyes. When we were at church tonight we had 2 of our grandsons with us (ages 4 and 8), yes we are very, very lucky! The youngest, who my husband calls his "Alleluia Boy", left my side to stand by his grandfather (the cantor) to sing the Alleluia Acclimation; it was awesome! When I saw him look up into my husband's eyes and the reflection of that in my grandson's eyes my heart swelled up! The congregation remembered when Dylan did the same thing when he was about 2 (hence the name) and it was totally unplanned. Today he even rehearsed. This is what memories are made of.

The challenge this week is; image showing action OR 2) an image only on the front of your card (no sentiment on the front) OR 3) action card (make it move).


This week our sponsor, with a $20 gift certificate is The Paper Shelter, they have adorable images, in fact my card was made with one of the colored images. please give them a visit!

Oh, my goodness...what a gorgeous card, Miesje. Every detail--highlighted embossing, embellies, layout--is stunning. And your images are adorable on center stage. What a precious story to share with us and I know how blessed your heart is when your little Alleluia Boy adores his grandfather. I can so see that picture and it is just heartwarming. Thanks for sharing it and your wonderful creation. Have a week filled with love.
