LOC One Heart

Hi everyone - it is Friday here already - the week has just flown by! I wanted to take a minute to thank those of you who sent birthday wishes my my DH, he appreciated each and everyone of them and had a great day - he asked me to pass on his thanks!!

This card is made with my favourite stamp companies, Layers of Color, I have used their Fleur Heart art stamp set - isn't it just gorgeous!!  I have kept the card fairly simple as I felt too ,much more would make it cluttered - what do you think!?!?


I have made it for a couple of challenges, the first being the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge where we are to be inspired by this scripture:

Mark 10: 7-9 "7. 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, 8. and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. 9. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." (NASB)

We have been challenged by Randi to create a card/project/layout that reflects the sentiment of this scripture by following this formula: Use whatever supplies/stamps you like to create whatever kind of card or project that you like BUT use must use TWO kinds of each item to make your ONE creation, for example. An example would be as follows: 2 different colors of cardstock, 2 different pieces of patterned paper, 2 pieces of ribbon, 2 brads.....



I have used two of everything, or used things in multiples of two - do you see the gold heart in the centre of the Fleur Heart?  The exception to this is the one black and gold button that I have used singularly, as a symbol of the two becoming one!


I have also made this for this weeks Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge where we are to use hearts...I have also used the fabulous scripture from ODBD, perfect for this occassion - who doesn't rejoice at LOVE!  Marriage is not only a commitment before God, where we exchange vows,  but also a time of celebration at this blessed union.....at our wedding my DH was playing drums with the band towards the end of the reception and our Wedding reception became one big CELEBRATION and time of rejoicing - infact we had such a great time, we were amongst the last to leave!! LOL!
