SSCC#26 He Loves You

Happy Monday, dear friends !

Hope you had a sweet weekend with those you love. I sure did !

My card today is for this weeks Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge . This week's verse is found in 1 John 4:10. " This is real love -- not that we loved God but that He loved us , and sent His son as a sacrifice to take away our sins." Isn't that the most amazing thing ! That sure encourages my heart and I hope it does yours too.

Ceal's challenge this week is to make a card or project for someone you love that lets them know God loves them.

On to my card... I used a Kraft base for my card , ran a scrap of Neenah cream through the Victorian CB folder and mounted atop the Kraft. I used an Martha Stewart punch for the border and then secured another scrap of Kraft atop that. My dp is from K& C and was added atop the kraft scrap. I then stamped the cross ( Verve ) onto Neenah with Creamy Caramel and then the verse from Jeremiah 29:11 ( Verve) was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa over the cross. This was cut out and embossed with a curvy rectangle Spellbinder Nestie. I found a Not Quite Navy scrap...a very nice complement to the dp and cut out and embossed a Labels Six die to mat behind the image panel. I also took a scrap of this and cut out two swirls with a CB die to mount behind the image panel. Ribbon/bow was made with my Bow Easy and added to the dp . I then colored some pearls with a E33 Copic and added these to the Labels Six corners and to the upper left . And that is all there was to it . Pretty easy. This wonderful verse means so much to me . It lets me know that our Creator knows us , has plans for each one of us ( WOW !) and gives us HOPE and a future. Don't we all need to be reminded of that in these challenging times ? !

Have a delightful day and thanks for hopping over ! I 'm thrilled that you would . Hugs !
